Chicken and Rice in Wine-herb Sauce

Very presentable and easy to make. Time does not include cooking time for the rice. I use the light whipped cream cheese with garlic and herbs. I believe you can substitute Boursin or other spreadable cheese, as well, though I haven't tried that.

This was great & easy! A great way to make a cream sauce without cream. I mixed w/ penne instead of rice beacause I had some already cooked up. Either way would be good.

This was a quick and easy dish to put together on a week night. I made this for my daughter and I and it turned out great. My sauce was a little too thick so I thinned it with a little more chicken bouillon and water and that worked find. That was the only change I made. Thanks for sharing.
