I took suggestions from both of the other two reviews when I fixed this last week. I used diced tomatoes, just to save time, and used all the juice. Added 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic. Reduced the liquid then added the chicken back to the pan along with the cream. This dish is quick enough for a weeknight, but yummy enough for company. My 18 year old grandson asked when I would do it again. High praise for any recipe.

Wonderful!!I too added the garlic. When I chopped the tomatoes I slit them open over the sink and drained them as well as my toddler has a hard time eating the seeds. I removed the chicken and added all the liquid that the tomatoes were packed in and reduced the whole thing before adding the cream. My husband says I can make the sauce part anytime I want for pasta, rice or meatball subs. (can you tell what his priorities are?)
