      I chose this recipe to use up some leftover creme fraiche I had from another dish. The sauce takes about 10 minutes to make up, so have your pasta cooking while making the chicken mixture. The colour of the dish is very bland, so I would consider adding some steamed broccoli to liven it up! Thanks for the posting!!!

      Delicious and utterly RICH. I served it over farfelle pasta rather than penne and thickened the sauce with a bit of flour and water slurry to thicken it, but other than that, made as specified.

      I am not a big fan of French cuisine, but this recipe turned me into a French cuisine lover! :) I loved everything about this dish. I made exactly as written (using white wine) except I left out the mushrooms because I don't like them. I'm putting this recipe straight into my keeper file. I had this with a simple tossed salad topped with Babzy's Salad Dressing and Croutons and with French White Bread. Merci beaucoup for this great recipe, PaulaG. Made for ZWT5. Update: This recipe is in my Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook.
