I would just like to mention I don't use cream but I do use the often overlooked demi-glace. This is a key ingrident. I guess people think it's to hard to find and omit it. The addition of demi gives this dish body and depth. Knorr makes excellent products and there are other products on the market. Search the web. Seek and ye shall be rewarded in this and many other dishes. Way to go Italian Cook (you get it) This was a VEAL dish before it was a chicken dish. Veal-----Veal Demi, it works.
