Q: What type of chicken is recommended for this recipe?
A: It is best to use boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this recipe. They cook evenly and absorb the flavor of the sauce well.

Q: Can we replace the 15% cooking cream with another variation?
A: Yes, you can use low-fat cream or full-fat cream depending on your preference. Full cream will make a richer sauce, while light cream is a lighter option.

Q: How long should you cook chicken?
A: Chicken breasts should be cooked for about 5-7 minutes on each side over medium heat, or until nicely browned and the internal temperature reaches 74°C (165°F).

Q: Can this recipe be made in advance?
A: Yes, you can prepare the chicken and sauce in advance and gently reheat before serving. The sauce may thicken as it cools, so add a little stock or water to adjust the consistency.

Q: What are the best accompaniments for this dish?
A: Green vegetables like green beans or asparagus, as well as mashed potatoes or pasta, are great accompaniments for this dish.

Q: Can other spices be added to the sauce?
A: Absolutely, feel free to experiment with herbs like thyme, rosemary or even a little chilli to add a spicy touch.
