Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



This recipe is similiar to what I'm use to making. However, instead of creamer I use heavy cream and some left over white wine that I've had in the fridge from the night before. I also add garlic and pepper in the sauce and cook brocolli on the side to add in before serving. On occasion I'll also bread the chicken and bake in the oven whie i'm making the sauce. Cream sauce is one of my favorite dishes and enjoy every drop of it....

Quick, Easy, Yummy

We all really enjoyed this recipe. I substituted evaporated milk for the creamer. I served it over angel hair pasta. Very yummy! I do think it needs more sauce, so I will double the sauce recipe next time.

Better Than The First Time

This is the seconde time I have made this and I forgot how easy it is. I used a little extra lemon and it brought out more ZING. My 2.5 yr old helped me mix the sauce and she liked it too!!
