"This chicken in cream sauce recipe, famously known as volaille a la crème in the Bresse region, is delicious in its simplicity. Brown high-quality chicken in butter and then simmer it in a cream sauce. That’s all there is to it! Another recipe found on about.com for ZWT, French region."

"Wow, decadent!!!! Enjoyed this very much, a fabulous meal for not too much effort. I did use boneless chicken fillets which I chopped up, preferring it that way. I sliced most of the mushrooms and left just a few whole, served those to my husband, since I'm not a great mushroom lover. I had Creme Fraiche, but I did use dried thyme. All in all, fabulous! Definitely a keeper. Made for ZWT 8, thank you, diner!"
"This was divine!! A total hit at my house. The topping on the chicken and sauce was the piece de resistance!!! I can't say enough good about this. It is going right into my favorite of 2012. Made for ZWT8."
"Simply yummy. I made the Creme Fraiche and it was marvelous with the chicken. Had to use a pinch of dried thyme as no fresh was available. All in all this is a richly flavored dish suitable to adult taste that is actually very simple to make. It was very much enjoyed here. Made for ZWT8 - Chefs gone Wild!"
"This is a wonderful chicken recipe and the cream sauce is outstanding! I had to use sour cream as I could not find creme fraiche anywhere, unfortunately. It is very simple and delicious! Thanks for sharing. Made for Gimme 5 tag."
"I used sour cream and cut it back to one cup. I added the veggies into the last cooking stage.To give more flavour to the sauce I found it a bit to "tangy" but DH loved it. Easy to make. Made for PRMR"
"Deceptively simple! You would never know how easy this recipe is by reading the ingredients. Very yummy. I'd increase the sauce by a bit, but I like a lot of sauce. I truly enjoyed this chicken! Thanks for posting a great recipe. Made for 123 Hit Wonders tag!"
"Very delicious! The sauce is to die for! I did not have pearl onions on hand so used regular onion and I omitted the mushrooms (personal preference). This recipe is definitely "company" worthy! Thanks for another great recipe!! Made for Everday is a Holiday!"
"Merci.Diner.... Out of this world taste, your recipes are always to die for. I substituted fleur de sel, my favorite french salt,other than that, made exactly as directed. I love the creme fraiche, hard to find here in Phoenix, but worth the hunt. Made for the Epicurean Queen Team, ZWT5."
