This is SO easy and very tasty. A good midweek meal. I used ½ wine and ½ chicken stock and added some garlic powder, dried thyme and dried sage (as I felt it needed some herbs and the cream cheese I was using was not flavoured) but I otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
