chicken baked in cream
I found this recipe in my new Bed and Breakfast recipe book and it was delicious. I know – I know – it’s not very colorful and pretty bland looking, but don’t let that fool you. We have been trying to eat less red meat, and I’ve decided to try unusual recipes. . . “unusual” being relative when it comes to what my husband will eat. It was very easy, although it takes some cooking time. It makes a really thick yummy sauce while baking and was perfect with some brown rice – the secret is cooking it in a over low heat for almost two hours. Maybe next time I’ll serve it on a red plate!!!
