    littleturtle's Note:

    Normandy inspired chicken with easy, homemade crème fraîche. Simply amazing. Goes perfectly with a side of green beans; also wonderful with sugar snap peas, asparagus or spinach. Notes on crème fraîche: If you're concerned about the thickness of the finished sauce, mix up the crème fraîche a couple of hours ahead of starting the rest of the meal. Crème fraîche thickens as it stands and the thicker it is, the thicker the finished sauce will be; many recipe call for leaving it out around 12 hours, or even up to 24, to set up. It is the bacterial cultures in the sour cream acting on the heavy cream that cause it to thicken and sour slightly, but from what I've read, it's a beneficial bacteria and perfectly safe to eat even when left out for that long (at any rate, I've left it out for that long and my family ate it and was perfectly fine). If you're concerned about the fact that it's a bacteria at all, heating it after it's thickened will kill the bacteria; the taste will be the same, but it will break down slightly and make the texture a little grainy.

      This was a wonderful dish. The first one I attempted in my new crockpot. The flavor was excellent. I forgot to leave out the creme fraiche and needed to drain more of the sauce or maybe even reduce it on the stove to keep all the flavor. I would also reduce the cooking time or chill the chicken as mentioned by peeblyweebly.<br/><br/>I can't wait to make it a second should be perfect!

      I did not follow the instruction to leave the dairy products on the counter for the six hours it took the chicken to cook since that seemed like an invitation for food poisoning. It took nearly half hour to get all the ingredients chopped and ready to put in the crock pot. To slow down the cooking of the chicken to avoid it being overdone/dry, I put my chicken in the freezer for an hour before I put it in the crockpot. I used fresh thyme sprigs. After cooking for six hours, I drained off all but 1/2 cup liquid because there was just so much of it. But even leaving that little amount, after adding the dairy products the resulting sauce was very thin and watery. Although I like flavor combo of leeks and mushrooms this was kind of bland. I added salt, which was not on the ingredient list and that helped but this was still missing something. It was ok and we ate all of it but I don't expect to make this again.
