Bistro Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sherri35

This chicken can be done in the oven or it is excellent in the slow cooker also. The sauce is so delicious and I suggest serving it over pasta, noodles, baked potatoes or with some good French bread.

A very simple recipe to make. Not alot of ingredients to confuse the issue and very simple but good flavors. I cut the thyme back to 1/2 teaspoon because I felt that if I used the whole amount listed, the flavor would be overpowering. I am glad I did. I am not a huge fan of thyme but feel that it has a subtle flavor that goes well in this dish. I also thickened up the sauce a little with some cornstarch and served it over egg noodles. A really great weeknight supper! Thanks!
