  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add seasoned chicken strips. Cook and stir until browned on all sides, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove cooked chicken strips from skillet and set aside.

  • Keep skillet on medium heat and pour in heavy whipping cream to deglaze skillet, scraping up all brown bits. Lower heat and simmer until sauce has reduced by half, 5 to 7 minutes. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter and stir until melted. Add chicken back to skillet and heat until chicken is warmed thoroughly. Season with salt.

I made it like it said except I halved the chili powder since I am sensitive to hot spices. I used two chicken breasts and only had enough of the spice coating for half of it. So I had to make up more coating to finish coating the chicken. I thought the sauce was a bit thin and wondered if it should have some flour added to help coat the chicken and thicken the sauce. It was OK even Husband wasn't too impressed with it. I served it over rice and added peas for the vegetable. It didn't take that long to make so I can see it for a busy weeknight dinner. Read More

This was good. My family said it was a make again. I liked that the space mix was dried vs fresh. Made for a quick meal. This was not spicy at all as I used chili powder. Next time I may add some cayenne to add more heat. That being said- the flavor was really good. I did add a cup of chicken broth to the cream to make a bit more sauce as I was serving it over egg noodles. Read More

I chunked the chicken instead of having strips. The chicken was very moist. Otherwise I done it like it said. I served mashed potatoes with it. We put the chicken beside and used the sauce for the gravy. I'll probably make it again. Read More

Liked it very much, though since I didn't have the amount of chicken called for, I changed the sauce ingredient amounts (by look and feel) and it was very hot, which is saying A LOT for us. But it was delicious. Read More

This was excellent, but made a few changes. I combined bacon fat and olive oil to saute some chopped garlic (before adding the chicken). I also added paprika and cumin to the spice mix. Before re-adding the chicken I sauted fresh mushrooms. At the end I added a bit of dry sherry before the cream. Very good. Read More
