If it’s comfort food you’re seeking , worry not . This creamy chicken recipe may not make it to the best diet food choice , but it sure does make it to delicious foods. I am personally encouraging you to ditch your diet for once and dig in .

I visited a friend for dinner , and while i have been trying to stay on the plant based diet , there was chicken on the table and i couldn’t resist. Sorry to the plant based diet fanatics , i fell for the tempting mouthwatering creamy chicken .

I ended up asking for the recipe , because it was that good . My friend served the chicken with sour mashed potatoes . You can also choose to serve it with rice if you fancy but the sour mashed potatoes perform better with the chicken.

I am a big fan of batch making food but with this recipe , i recommend serving it immediately . The cream and the wine together don’t seem like a good combination to keep for long term hehe . So make the creamy chicken with the intention of serving it immediately.
