ffwD: Chicken, Apples and Cream à la Normande

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Leave it to the Doristas to make up for “lost” cream time. Last week, we made a soup without cream, and this week we’re making a chicken dish with it! Because my office Christmas party is today, I made this dish earlier in the week. And, it was delicious. Then again, is anything with cream ever not delicious? The sauteed mushrooms, apples, and onions were substantial enough that they could hold their own as a stand-alone side. However, the inclusion of tender chicken breast made the dish a satisfying main course. I will definitely be making this again. This chicken, apples and cream à la Normande was made as a part of French Fridays with Dorie, a group of bloggers who make recipes from Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.

    A complete dish this was for sure. And cream can make a dish a bit better!

    Look at the beautiful color on that chicken! Absolutely lovely. And also quite delicious, naturally. Nice job!

    Haha…I didn’t think of the cream (or lack of cream) connection between the two recipes! Glad you enjoyed…you didn’t mind the onions????

    Man that looks yummy! I never would have combined apples and chicken until I came across a health food recipe suggesting the mash up. We eat it at least once a month now 🙂

    This certainly looks yummy and very comforting. In other words perfect for this cold weather.

    Well, we’re cooking through a french cookbook after all, so there needs to be a healthy does of cream and butter. Otherwise, what’s the point:-)

    Mmmm, looks good. And now I’m wondering how that would taste with the chicken cut up some and all made into a galette…

    That looks really fabulous. Everything “Normande” in France is awash with cream,butter or cider …..or all three:)

    Your seque from “sans creme à avec creme” is very clever. I think, you, like me, liked both the recipes the last two weeks. Yours looks delicious. Hope your office Christmas party was fun.

    Very nice color on that chicken.
    It is funny how things “balance” out in the end…

    I absolutely love the sound of this dish. Chicken and apples in cream sauce. Wow, it’s totally my first time seeing it and I’m tempted to make something like this!
