Herbed Cream Chicken

Wine, cream, herbs. You can’t go wrong with that. During weekdays, I am always in a hurry to cook lunch for my family, most of the recipes I have uploaded on our site are pretty easy and quick to make, but this one they particularly enjoy. The wine and cream make it taste like you spent a little more time on it. If you don’t have fresh herbs at hand, by all means use powdered ones. Start with ½ teaspoon of thyme, and if you don’t have chives try using the green part of spring onions.
