4/Chicken Fricassée

A moist-heat cooking method, braising may be used to tenderize tough poultry products. Also, as for veal and pork,it can be used to provide moistness and flavor to tender poultry items. Coq au vin, the well-known braised chicken in red wine,was originally made with a tough old rooster (coq),but today the same recipe is applied to tender young chicken.

Poultry products are braised using the same procedures as for meats, except that mire-poix is frequently omitted. Other flavoring ingredients may be used instead, depending on the recipe. Methods 1 and 2 (p. 333) are used when the chicken is to be browned.
