Chicken a la Creme Recipe


A simple, fast and delicious French recipe for chicken tenders in a rich cream sauce. You'll want to serve it with crusty French bread to sop up every drop!


  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 ½ pounds chicken breast tenderloins or strips
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pint heavy cream


  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.
