Notes

  1. If you prefer a thicker sauce you can lightly coat the chicken with a little flour before browning them
  2. You can also add a little more cream if you prefer
  3. You don't have to pop the chicken into the oven. Cover and continue cooking on the stove top until the chicken is cooked
  4. The red color is due to the amount of paprika I added, please feel free to add less if you wish
