This was quite different from what we normally make. We normally aren't fans of creamy dishes but this one was very good. We loved all the ingredients & how the flavours came together. I didn't have chicken seasoning on hand so I used essence with added cumin & sage. For the cream I used 1/2 cream cheese & yogurt. In place of the chicken drippings I added 2 T of chicken broth. My essence is salt-free so I found it needed abit of salt at the end. Used 1 1/4 boneless/skinless thighs & 1/2 spaghetti squash, for us it was perfect portions for 4. Thanks for sharing.
This is a keeper! Very tasty and healthy. I served the asparagus on the side instead of in the dish, but did everything else as written. Thanks for posting this!
