I combined portions of a couple different recipes and added my own twist according to what i had in my cabinets. chicken is tender, flavors were great, and there's plenty of sauce. i made rice to go with this, which works well as a side or put the chicken and sauce right on top. carrots are what i had in my refridgerator, but many other veggies would work well. i used 6 pieces of chicken, not thin. my broth was not low sodium. i had cream cheese on hand, and i used cayenne pepper. the cream mixture is thick and i spread it on top with a spatula. during cooking liquid built up and it made for a great creamy sauce. i found that each flavor in this recipe was detectable without one overpowering the other. i hope this works as well for you as it did for me!
