Simple skillet meal that's good when the weather is cold. Creamy sauce covers chicken pices and hunks of potato and carrots. I used "pick o the chick," which was more than 4 pounds of chicken, 5 medium potatoes, and a pound of baby carrots. Even so, there was plenty of sauce. For my tastes, I would reduce the fat next time, subbing half and half for whipping cream and reducing the butter at least by half. With butter, whipping cream, and fat from the chicken skin, I was feeling a bit guilty. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
