One of the few main dishes that First Lady Mary Lincoln could get her husband, President Abe Lincoln, to eat was Chicken Fricassee. So, in salute of one of history's picky eaters, we're offering up a version of this hearty chicken dish that just might win his seal of approval.
What You'll Need:
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil

- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
- 2 carrots, coarsely chopped (about 1-1/4 cups)
What To Do:

- Remove chicken to a platter and drain all but 2 tablespoons liquid from pan.
- In a small bowl, whisk together soup, milk, lemon juice, thyme, bay leaf, salt, and pepper.
