Chicken in Wine and Cream Sauce Chicken in Wine and Cream Sauce Chicken in Wine and Cream Sauce Chicken in Wine and Cream Sauce

Loved it, classic french style, simply prepared with a flavor packed jus. One change I made was to brown the chicken breast in a non-stick pan (and then finish cooking by popping it into the oven) before making the sauce to build extra flavor.

Loved it, classic french style, simply prepared with a flavor packed jus.

One change I made was to brown the chicken breast in a non-stick pan (and then finish cooking by popping it into the oven) before making the sauce to build extra flavor.

That way I could use the same pan to cook the shallots (I used onion and fresh garlic) and add the wine to deglaze and scrape up all those flavorful brown bits. I then served with blanched carrots and some crusty bread to sop up the sauce.
