Skillet Cream Chicken

Skillet Cream ChickenOh, my gosh.  Can you please stop staring at the huge chunk I took out of the chicken prior to cooking?  Wow, I had no idea it was even that big until I just looked at the pictures now.  I thought to myself, “what the heck happened here?!”  Life, that’s what happened!  As I was trimming it, I found too much fat in one section and took out too much.  I apologize.  But the meal was good, so it’s all good!

I adapted this recipe from The Cookie Rookie.  It looked really good, so naturally I had to try it myself.  No surprise by the picture itself, but it isn’t healthy, so this is good for nights you’d like to indulge.  Mmm…heavy cream.  You know you love it.
