Chicken with Wine Cream Sauce is rich and delicious served with noodles and broccoli.

A few days ago, someone gave me a large container of heavy cream. As much as I like desserts, I really wanted to make a cream sauce with wine. It’s one of my favorite dishes.

Chicken Base

For years, I had cans of chicken broth in my cabinet for when I wanted to make risotto. There was only one problem – what to do with the rest of the can or box when I didn’t use it all up? Quite often I wound up with chicken-flavored science experiments in my refrigerator. My mother’s solution was to use bullion cubes – but they were so salty. Confession: when I was a kid and wanted something really salty, I would sneak one of those. When I found out about Better than Bullion, the dilemma was over. Now, I could make just enough broth for whatever the recipe called for. They have several varieties, chicken, beef, vegetable, ham, lobster, roasted garlic (the best garlic bread!), and turkey. They last a long time in the refrigerator so now I always have broth when I need it.


When you get home from work, and you’re tired, and you really don’t want to cook, who wants to deal with slicing mushrooms and sauteing them? Anyone? Although fresh mushrooms are definitely my preference, bottled mushrooms will do in a pinch. I always have a few jars in my pantry in case I run out of fresh ones and want mushrooms in my dish.

If you are watching your waist, and don’t want to use cream, you might like my chicken with wine recipe, too.

This recipe was even more fun to do because Spane helped me make a video, and The Good Plate now has its own channel on Youtube. Maybe I can get a lot of subscribers and make some money, that would be nice, wouldn’t it? Well, if you like the video, please subscribe to the channel and watch for more cooking videos in the future.
