    This was a terrific chicken dish. The couple things that didn’t go according to the recipe... the chicken took a lot longer than 3 min, closer to 6-7 min depending on the thickness of the thigh. Also, the sauce didn’t really thicken up, so it’s interesting that is included in the recipe if it gets too thick add more stock. Overall it was a very good dish, took aloe longer than 28 min.

    This was very good. I did use whipping cream instead of cashew cream, chicken breast a, and extra spinach. I ate it without pasta or rice and it was very yummy!!

    Tasted really good. Needed salt and pepper and a bit of lemon juice to brighten it up, and wine to help with bits on bottom of pan.

    I absolutely LOVED this recipe, I used heavy cream instead of cashew cream because I didn’t have cashews but it turned out amazing.

    I was amazed how easy this was. Increased broth and cream so i could have it over pasta. Sorry to ruin the keto part of the recipe, im not quite ready to give up my carbs. Delicious though

    Loved this recipe. I used pancetta instead of bacon but followed all the rest and this recipe is a keeper!

    This was very good. Don’t let the cashew cream throw you, it’s very easy to make. I made it the quick way in a magic bullet and it was delicious. I served it over riced cauliflower. I will definitely make this again.

    Delicious. Doubled the recipe and served with Broccoli. Very saucy, so could prbly have eased up on the broth and/or served with some cauliflower rice.

    Came out very tasty! I used 1 1/4 cups of chicken broth and substituted 1/2 c of half & half plus 1/4 c of sour cream for the cashew butter . I simmered the dish at a very low heat for about 30 minutes once it was put together. The sauce was thick enough without having to add any flour and the chicken breasts that I used came out very tender.

    Only thing I recommend is seasoning the chicken with garlic powder, paprika and salt and a dash of crushed red pepper. I used 1 teaspoon of each mixed together and then sprinkled on the chicken before an searing. Otherwise chicken is a little bland.

    It's definitely a great dairy-free recipe. I couldn't find unsalted cashews so I just used the salted ones and backed off on the other salt I added. I made this for my husband (he's dairy-free) and I and we were a bit surprised on how much we liked it.
    i loved it! i personally would use heavy cream next time because the cashew cream added a bit of fishiness to the chicken, but overall, it was extremely good! i'll definitely make this again

    Didn’t use sun-dried tomatoes because I’m not sure I like them. I added my own spices because some of the comments said it lacked flavor. Added extra spinach & served over chickpea noodles. My husband & I both loved it!

    Perfect dish. Good flavor. I sliced my chicken breast before returning to the sauce. This will be a regular in the rotation!

    Super yummy- I added quite a bit of salt and pepper, and used heavy cream and some cornstarch to thicken it because I was afraid it might be a little thin. The sundried tomatoes are different- a little sweet, which is unexpected but not bad. It didn’t make as much as I would have liked, given the time I put in, and definitely needed more bacon! However, will make again, it’s tasty mixed with rice.

    My husband liked it a lot. It tasted different than I expected, and I didn't really adjust. Overall yummy tho... my only drawback is that it was very watery with heavy cream instead of cashew cream. If you make the cashew cream as advised on her website, it'll probably reduce the water content. I added flour to thicken it enough for fettuccine. It came out really pretty and made me look like a pro... three cheers for that!!

    Nice flavor depth and very colorful. I used kale instead of spinach, which was delicious; however, my kids prefer fresh spinach. Will make again with spinach next time.
