Notes

 Make sure the chicken is fresh and well pounded.

You can use heavy cream instead of milk. If you use heavy cream, you don’t have to add cornstarch to thicken up the gravy.

You can pair oregano with basil and tarragon as well instead of rosemary, thyme, and parsley.

Serve this dish fresh.

Furthermore, it is a one-pot dish. It means you don’t have to worry about cleaning afterward. You can invite friends over and chat and cook together to have some quality time along with a plate of great food.

Indulge in the creaminess and deliciousness of this chicken in a creamy sauce, and it will become your favorite dish in an instant. That’s guaranteed!
