Directions

  1. Melt half of the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken tenders with salt and pepper, and saute them in butter until golden on all sides, about 10 minutes. Add the remaining butter, reduce heat to medium, and cook for 5 more minutes.
  2. Pour the heavy cream into the skillet, and simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and chicken is cooked through. Best when served with fresh French bread for dipping.

Extremely quick and easy to make. I added about one half teaspoon of cornstarch to help thicken the sauce. Next time I think I'll add a little garlic, mushrooms or onions to the mix. Kids liked it. Husband liked it. I liked it but thought it could be even better with a little extra spices. Served it with angel hair pasta tossed with butter and pepper, french bread as suggested, steamed mixed vegetables and a fresh tossed salad. I will definately make this dish again.

This is an excellent and easy recipe. I added a cup of sliced fresh mushrooms which made it even better. Yummy!!!!

I had to give this four stars for the original recipe.. BUT After taking the advice of some of the reviewers and adding garlic, seasoned salt and Mrs.Dash to the chicken while it cooked... YUMMY!!!!! I will make this again with those changes. Make sure you buy crusty bread to dip in the sauce.
