Chicken Fricassee.
Versatile ... chicken fricassee.

There are some hearty weekend feasts in this meal planner, including roast pork paired with a cavolo nero gratin and that old-school classic, corned beef.

But for the working week, there's a mix of light and heavy, plus a versatile chicken fricassee from Brigitte Hafner that can be used as a base for your own variations.

If you're after a dessert or cake-making project for the weekend, check out the recipes in our rainy day baking photo gallery.
