A creamy bechamel sauce on a generous portion of egg noodles, topped with chunks of chicken and vegetables: mmm... savoury... With a hint of garlic, black peppercorns and a hint of garlic: divine! Some dishes deserve recognition on their own merits; this is one of them.
Some say a « blanquette » is a stew of white meat in white sauce, or « white stew», while others advocate that the term « blanquette» means « the sauce that coats the stew is white». Whatever the meaning, served with egg noodles and vegetables, the blanquette of chicken is a more than a meal, it’s a must.

In addition to being a stew, a blanquette is also a variety of small white pears, a kind of grape, and a type of white wine?
