The first time I tasted chipotle cream sauce was at the Cheesecake Factory restaurant, and I fell in love with it. Here's an easy and quick version to make at home! :)

This sauce is tasty but it did separate on me. I used part of the sauce over a poached chicken breast and the rest went over pasta. I'll re-try it and if it will stay together.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat and sauté the shallot and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes; add the broth and wine and sauté another 3 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and whisk in the sour cream, then the pureed chipotle.
  3. Simmer for a couple of minutes to heat through and season to taste with salt and white pepper.
  4. Serve over chicken and/or pasta; makes about 2 servings.
  5. For an interesting twist, substitute vodka for the wine.
