French Cream Chicken – 4 Ingredients! 5 0 5 2

An ahhhh-mazing tasting creamy chicken dish that's LOW CARB!

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 1 hr 20 mins
  • 15 mins

    1 hr 20 mins

    1 hr 35 mins

  • Yields: 2

Ingredients

500g diced chicken thigh

110g block of French Onion Cream Cheese (I used White Valley brand) - see notes below in method

200ml cooking cream

60g baby spinach leaves

Directions

1Brown/sear diced chicken well in searing slow cooker or pan

2Add cream cheese and stir for 2-3mins as it melts to coat chicken with it

3Add cooking cream and stir

4Cover and use The Tea Towel Trick

5Cook on HIGH for a further 1hr 15mins

6Add spinach and stir through until wilted

Notes

1If you cannot source the French Onion flavoured cream cheese you could use regular Philadelphia cream cheese and mix with 20g French Onion soup mix

2The cooking cream is important as it resists splitting like normal cream. I like the Bulla brand myself

3Inspired by the recipe "Chicken with Semi-Dried Tomato & Spinach – LOW CARB"

Hi we don’t have French onion cream cheese
Can I use normal cream cheese and add French onion soup mix to it instead

This dish was super easy to make! It was phenomenal! I added pasta to go with it too! Will definitely make again

It’s the consistency of regular pouring cream … it just is made not to split 🙂
I believe Creme Fraiche is similar if you have that?

What’s the tea towel trick? And I’m in South Africa so we don’t have the Bulla brand. Any other way you can explain this creams consistency etc

I trialed this today with chicken pieces (chicken maryland and chicken thigh fillets)
I cooked them for about 1.5hrs first just by themselves then drained out the cooking liquids that produced, before returning them to the slow cooker and adding in the cream and cream cheese etc 🙂
Cooked with tea towel in place so the water didn’t drip into the creamy sauce.
They were beautiful!

Cooking cream is a type of cream that resists splitting when heated 🙂
I use the Bulla brand myself

Hi just wondering what cooking cream is?
Is it thickened cream?
Thanks
