Heavenly and Delicious Keto Chicken Fricassee

From the kitchen of Dr. Randall Hansen

What follows is a very easy recipe for making one of my mom's favorite dishes -- chicken fricassee.

Makes 4 servings, but consider doubling the recipe so that you have leftovers!


  • 4 organic pasture-raised chicken breasts (or one whole chicken, cut up)

  • 4 tablespoons of organic/grassfed butter

  • 1 small onion

  • 10 pearl onions

  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 2 celery stalks, chopped

  • 1 cup of finely diced or julienne organic carrots

  • 8 ounces of mushrooms, sliced/diced

  • 2 cups of organic chicken broth

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (or organic heavy cream)

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

  • 1 teaspoon of poultry seasoning

  • 2 sprigs of fresh parsley

  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme

  • 2 tablespoons of arrowroot (for thickening sauce)

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Saute onions, garlic, and mushrooms in butter in a large skillet.

  2. Remove those and place them aside, leaving the butter in skillet.

  3. Sprinkle poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper on the chicken pieces.

  4. Brown chicken on both sides in the same skillet, adding additional butter or olive oil. About 10 minutes or so.

  5. Repeat for all chicken pieces.

  6. Throw all the chicken and onion/garlic/mushroom mix into a large pot.

  7. Add carrots, celery, and herbs.

  8. Add wine and broth to the pot.

  9. Bring the entire mix to a boil, then reduce heat to let simmer for about 25-30 minutes.

  10. When ready, remove the chicken pieces and add arrowroot to thicken the sauce.

  11. Taste the sauce and supplement with salt and pepper or other spices as needed.

  12. Add chicken back to pot and let sit for a few minutes.

  13. Plate the chicken fricassee in a bowl or lipped plate.

Optional: Cook up some organic spinach (butter or olive oil in the skillet with the spinach, which will reduce dramatically) and use the spinach as the base for the chicken fricassee.
