The cream had perfect consistancy without a ton of fat from cream. Delicious!

This chicken was so tender and juicy! It was cooked perfectly. My husband enjoyed this more than I did...but he likes horseradish, I don't. (Gotta make stuff the hubby likes every once in a while ;) ) I was expecting to not like it at all, but it was better than I imagined it would be! From my husband, a horseradish lover, this chicken gets 4 stars :) Thanks for posting. Made for "I Recommend Tag Game"

This was pretty good. I used whole wheat flour and 4 boneless skinless breasts. There was plenty of sauce for 4 breasts instead of just 2. I skipped the broiling step. The sauce and cooking time creates a very tender, juicy chicken breast. The sauce was definitely horseradish flavor. With all of the other ingredients in the sauce, I would have liked for another flavor to come through. I have never had horseradish with anything but beef so it was a change from the usual chicken flavors.
