Creamy Garlic and Thyme Chicken

September 10, 2017


We don't use cream very often at home, it tends to make me a bit sniffly, but every now and again is fine.


You will love this recipe, it is totally delicious. 


Try other vegetables such as, broccoli, cauliflower or green beans.


It is a delight served with good quality pasta, spirallised vegetable noodles, cauliflower rice or mashed root vegetables.
