Every time I serve this very rich, delicious chicken dish my guests request the recipe, often saying it's "to die for". The sauce is so creamy and rich, it can handle creativity and still come out delicious. Some variations I’ve tried include adding mushrooms and frozen baby peas. I’ve also tried it with broccoli pieces to create a one-dish casserole.

Rich and delicious certainly describes this simple recipe. Cutting the ingredients for 4 chicekn breasts was easy and it turned out wonderful. Served with potato gnocchi, the gravy was very tasty. Thank-you for sharing this recipe.

Wow! This is delicious and really easy to prepare. the only change I made was to sprinkle a little garlic powder on the chicken before I added the sauce. Thanks so much for the great dish!
