Low-fat blanquette of chicken

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
12 \N Chicken Thighs
1 large Onion
3 \N Cloves
1 large Carrot, cubed
1 \N Bouquet Garni
4 cups Fat-Free Chicken Broth
½ pounds Mushrooms
1 tablespoon Oil
\N \N Salt and Pepper
½ pounds Baby Onions, peeled
½ cup Evaporated Skim Milk
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
\N \N Lemon Juice
½ teaspoon Lemon Rind, finely grated
\N \N Parsley, chopped

Remove and discard skin and fat from the chicken thighs; place in a frying pan. Add onion stuck with cloves, carrot and bouquet garni.

Cover with chicken broth, season and slowly bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer and cook until tender, lid askew, for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, saute the mushrooms in the oil, season with salt and pepper, cover and cook gently until mushrooms give up all their juices. Remove the mushrooms to a plate leaving the juices in the skillet. Add the baby onions to the skillet and cook, covered, until tender. If needed, add 1 or 2 tb of water or broth while cooking. Mix together onions and mushrooms, set aside.

Remove the cooked chicken thighs to a plate, strain the cooking broth into a bowl. Return the chicken thighs to the pan and spread the onions and mushrooms over them. Bring broth to a simmer in a saucepan. Mix the evaporated milk with the cornstarch and slowly pour, stirring, into the chicken broth.

Stir until thickened, add the lemon juice and rind, correct the seasoning and pour over the stew. Heat well and serve sprinkled with parsley.
