    Delicious. I had to stop myself from licking the bowl for the rest of the sauce.

    Simply delicious next time I will decrease the red pepper flakes.. it was a bit overwhelming. Add I bit more cream and stock.. simply can’t get enough of the sauce 😁 remember to mince the shallots... that will thicken the sauce!

    It was awesome! I made it with more cream, chicken stock and some flower to thicken the sauce, then added blanched asparagus and used linguini as the base. The sauce, chicken and everything is perfect. My gf and I just call it “the chicken dish” now. Lol

    loved it. I used lactose free milk in place of cream and it tasted great. I will double the sauce next time.

    Directions weren’t really directions. I’m a beginner so I had to figure out when to add the ingredients. It tasted great but I’m not sure if the texture was the best

    Absolutely amazing! I used about twice as many red peppers because I like my food spicy and it was perfect.

    Good flavour. My chicken took longer to brown & longer in the oven, but worth the patience.

    I doubled the sauce and served it with pasta. I omitted the red pepper flakes. The sauce was fairly thin, maybe because I doubled it. The whole family ate it, but no one was crazy about it.

    Easy. Fantastic flavor. Sauce didn’t thicken as much as I hoped it would even after 20 minutes.
