Category:  Main Course Midweek Express  - 


For 4 Serving(s)


  • 1 tbs oil
  • 25g butter
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 375 ml dry cider
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 200ml cream

Normandy Chicken Directions

  1. Heat the butter and oil together in a non-stick frying pan or heavy based saucepan and sauté the chicken until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute to form a roux. Add the cider and bring to the boil to thicken. 
  2. Return the chicken to the pan and simmer over a gentle heat for about 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through, turning the chicken over half way through cooking. You may need to add a little extra cider if the sauce evaporates too much. Add the cream and heat for 1-2 minutes without boiling. Serve piping hot.
  3. Note: Make sure all the flour is thoroughly mixed with the oil and butter in the pan. It is often easier to remove the pan from the heat to do this.
