"This was my Grandma's secret family recipe from her French ancestors. I have never seen a recipe like this on any site. It's a rich creamy sauce over chicken...great with mashed potatoes. A great dish for Easter or Christmas." — jodilmayer

heavy whipping cream
cornstarch, or as needed
cooked chicken breasts, broken into chunks
Tastes really good, similar to hollandaise sauce. It tasted even better with the mashed potatoes. I think next time I will put some veggies in it and try it with noodles or rice. I also wonder how I can make it not separate, it was probably the margarine I was using but it sucks when it separates because it doesn't look as appetizing as it really is. Also the recipe makes a ton which is why next time I will half it. of course I didn't use 4 chicken breasts because we usually get full with 2 or 3 cut up in sauce no matter what it is. But I don't think 4 chicken breasts would suffice with the amount it makes. definitely worth trying and tweaking to your tastes although the original is still very good!
This is really tasty! You can use skim milk you'll just need to add a little more flour for your roux. Don't let this recipe intimidate you, its easy and great for leftover chicken!
This was okay. I liked it, though not necessarily enough to cook it again, but my husband couldn't eat it. However, he won't eat several creamy sauces. The chicken and sauce was good served on the mashed potatoes. My sauce separated but tasted fine.
