Chicken a La Creme

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by bmcnichol

This is a family favorite. It is a very versital recipe. We have eaten this over noodles, rice and veggies. We have also eaten it plain and used french bread to soak up the broth. I have also added mushrooms to this to make it a bit "different". I've also used fresh garlic and onions for a change. You can also replace olive oil for some of the butter.

Too simple to be so good! I used 2 tbsp butter + 1 tbsp of olive oil to cook the chicken. I also had to sub evaporated milk for the cream because I was out. We served over toast but this would also be good over noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.
