Directions

  1. Melt half of the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken tenders with salt and pepper, and saute them in butter until golden on all sides, about 10 minutes. Add the remaining butter, reduce heat to medium, and cook for 5 more minutes.
  2. Pour the heavy cream into the skillet, and simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and chicken is cooked through. Best when served with fresh French bread for dipping.

Extremely quick and easy to make. I added about one half teaspoon of cornstarch to help thicken the sauce. Next time I think I'll add a little garlic, mushrooms or onions to the mix. Kids liked it. Husband liked it. I liked it but thought it could be even better with a little extra spices. Served it with angel hair pasta tossed with butter and pepper, french bread as suggested, steamed mixed vegetables and a fresh tossed salad. I will definately make this dish again.

i seasoned like blackened chicken before frying, it was perfect. without seasoning, it's too bland.

I had to give this four stars for the original recipe.. BUT After taking the advice of some of the reviewers and adding garlic, seasoned salt and Mrs.Dash to the chicken while it cooked... YUMMY!!!!! I will make this again with those changes. Make sure you buy crusty bread to dip in the sauce.

As with other reviews, I would say this is an EXCELLENT base recipe. I have made this a ton, for my very picky family. To make everyone happy I've slowly altered it from the original recipe. To start, I thicken up the sauce as well as add a ton of much-needed flavor by adding a can of garlic-seasoned cream of mushroom soup to the creme before adding the chicken. I also season the chicken with garlic poweder. I have added various vegetables -depending on my mood. This is a definate picky eater pleaser.

I love this recipe so much! We like to serve it with pasta because the sauce is so good.

This was REALLY good! Much better than it sounds. It sounded a little plain, so I added sliced black olives and some leftover corn and served it over brown rice. Real comfort food! Will definitely make this again!
