Chicken a la Crème Recipe: A 3-Ingredient Comfort Food Recipe From France

Chicken a la king fans, do we have a chicken recipe you need to try! Chicken a la Crème (chicken in cream) is a French dish that's similar to our chicken a la king. It's a classic comfort food dish made with chicken, cream and a little butter.

With this easy Chicken a la Crème recipe, you have the option to add some vegetables – either carrots or potatoes. Be sure to cut them in a very small dice so they look quickly. But this is optional! Serve this creamy chicken recipe over rice or alone with crusty French bread.

Cuisine: French
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter (divided)
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 pint (16 ounces) heavy cream
  • 1 - 2 cups small diced carrots or potatoes (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook in the butter until golden brown on all sides, about 8 to 10 minutes. (If using potatoes or carrots, cook along with the chicken.)
  2. Put the remaining butter into the pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook about 5 more minutes.
  3. Add the heavy cream and simmer on low for about 5 minutes, or until sauce thickens, stirring often. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve.
