Directions

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts, and cook until nicely browned on both sides. Pour in chicken stock and white wine, using enough chicken stock so that the chicken pieces are covered halfway to two thirds by liquid. Add whole garlic cloves. Reduce heat to medium-low, sprinkle flour over the top of the contents of the pan and cover with a lid. Simmer for 40 to 45 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

  • When chicken is cooked through, remove to a dish, and keep warm. Boil the liquid in the skillet until it is reduced to about 1 1/2 cups. Whisk cream into the reduced liquid, breaking up the garlic cloves as much as you can. Return chicken to the pan, and heat through.

DIVINE! I used 6 pieces of boneless chicken 1.5 cups CHARDONNAY (this white is drier than say a sweet Reisling - DRY is KEY!) 1 cup stock 6 garlic cloves. You need to give the sauce time to thicken once you add the cream. I mixed my leftover chicken sauce & rice altogether and saved it for lunch the next day - but I ended up eating it before bed it was so good!!!!!!! Read More

I thought the sauce was excellent but a little simple. So I added fresh thyme and rosemary to the ingredients and then fresh sliced mushrooms. I put it on egg noodles rather than rice. This was a very nice dinner for a week night. Read More

I just finished eating this and I gotta give it 5 stars. It was really tasty and fairly easy to prepare. The one complaint I have about the recipe is the ingredients list 1 tsp each of salt & pepper and the recipe doesn't tell you what to do with them. I added them to sauce while it was reducing and that worked out well for me. Maybe that's why other reviewers thought the sauce was bland - it would have been without the S&P. I thought the consistency of the sauce was perfect like gravy. I didn't serve with rice I did pasta with tomato sauce instead and it didn't really go well with the chicken. Next time I will serve with garlic mashed potatoes - it would be fantastic with the sauce! Read More

Looked good but I don't like gummy chicken skin. Instead of following the recipe directions exactly I cooked the chicken removed it to a warmer just before finishing deglazed the pan and proceeded with the sauce directions. When the sauce was reduced to just the right consistency (coated the back of a spoon) I popped the chicken breasts under the broiler to crisp the skin. Pretty plating helped me to avoid mushing the crisp skin: layer the sauce over the plate add mashed potatoes slightly off center prop the chicken up against the potatoes and drizzle a little extra sauce over the potatoes. Garnish with chopped fresh scallion and some smoked paprika and you've got a winner! Read More

This was excellent. I cut down on the fat a little such as frying in a smaller amount of butter mixed with olive oil then drained the fat off before proceeding. The sauce turned out fine in terms of thickness. The key is to reduce the broth quite a bit before adding any cream. I would serve this to guests any time. The chicken was succulent and tender. We had it with steamed baby potatos instead of rice. This one's a keeper for me! Read More

This is not the Portugese Chicken recipe that Vavo use to make. This is EASY and very TASTY. I did not use butter and used just a little olive oil. I also replaced the cream with tomato sauce. Even my picky children ate every bite and the hubby made sure he wiped up all the sauce on his plate with a nice crusty slice of bread. This is definetly a keeper. Thanks. Read More

This smelled heavenly while cooking. I guess I was expecting a bit of a thicker sauce but it was still tasty. Subbed apple juice for the white wine. Great flavor on the chicken. Read More

This dish turned out delicious. My husband and I loved it. I prepared it with boneless skinless chicken breasts seasoned with salt pepper paprika and garlic powder. Sauteed the chicken with plenty of minced garlic. Instead of white wine I used apple cider... the sauce turned out perfect so very tasty. Read More

Oh my gosh this is phenomenal. I used just two bone-in chicken breasts but the full amount of sauce as well as three cups of cooked rice. I'm so glad I made the extra sauce. I cheated and used half and half instead of the heavy cream but stirred in a bit of corn starch to help it thicken. I also added some sliced mushrooms that I needed to use up. All I can say is wow. I may try boneless skinless chicken breasts next time though. I feel like the bone and the skin are not crucial although they probably do add a lot of flavor. SO GOOD!!! Thanks so much for the recipe. Read More
