Traditional Acadian Chicken Fricot

Fricot is a hearty Acadian stew made with any kind of meat, potatoes, and onions. The dish is topped with fluffy dumplings consisting of flour and egg yolks.

This comfort food dish is believed to have originated in France in the 18th century, but evolved in Canada to become a staple of Acadian cuisine.
