    LilKiwiChicken's Note:

    I threw this together tonight using ingredients we had in the house. This is good served with a Belgian beer (like Leffe) to cut through the richness of the sauce. Serve with baby new potatoes and steamed fresh greens. (Please note, the photos make the sauce look a bit green, the sauce isn't actually green it's the really bad lighting in our living room!) Note, you can also 1 - 2T of your favourite cajun spice for depth of flavour.

      Yum! I used bone-in breast pieces because I had them. Otherwise followed recipe, this is easy and very tasty. I enjoyed the thyme in this, it really highlighted the chicken.

      This was just wonderful!! The boyfriend and I really loved every bite! Had 5 boneless, skinless thighs that I used. Also, I cooked the bacon first so that I could cook the onions and garlic in the bacon fat. Added some dry vermouth before the cream to deglaze the pan and add some liquid/flavor. Also, I wasn't sure if I should put the lid on in the oven or not so I kept in on for about 15-20 minutes then took it off. The boneless thighs only needed 40 minutes as Stardustannie suggests. Served it with some crusty bread and a salad. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you very much little kiwi chicken!

Thanks for sharing...this is such a simple, easy n very tasty recipe. I'm sure it will become a regular dish in at our table during the cooler months.
