The successful chicken fricassee must have plenty of chicken, so get a large stewing hen.
Have it cut up at the joints.
Save the liver and gizzard.
A 6 or 7 pound fowl will serve 6 to 8 dinner guests.
Wash the chicken pieces thoroughly and put in a Dutch oven with the lard or bacon fat.
Let simmer until brown, then take the chicken out and set it aside.
Brown the minced onion and garlic in grease; stir in and brown the flour.
Put the chicken back in the pot with 2 cups water, the bay leaves, thyme, parsley, salt, celery, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper.
Chop up the chicken gizzard and liver and add.
Cook for 1 hour, or until chicken is tender.
