Baked Chicken in Cream
Food Always In The Home. My mom would always prepare a simple to a good meal with her modest income she was earning from her small manufacturing business. She makes a simple dish to something would make us “WOW!” each time my mom puts the dish on our dining table. And it was something I almost took for granted. When I got married and had kids to prepare meals for, preparing and cooking a good food isn’t easy as it seems. It needs to have the know-how and the heart to do the dish. I have lots of kitchen disasters and disappointments but those taught and challenged me to try again until I am satisfied. A big challenge for me was baking. I had a couple of baking sessions with my mom during my grade school years. And it was not enough that I may say, “Yes, I can do baking.” When my husband surprised me with an oven as his gift for my 27th birthday, I considered myself as a newbie in baking. Excited and happy I was, challenge came in to me to do the baking. So I started with quick breads like Squash Bread, Banana Lemon Bread, Pound Cake and cookies like Oatmeal Cookies, Sugar Cookies and Chocolate Crinkles. I had some few errors at first but as I bake more, I can say I am doing better each baking. I had several bread and cookie recipes and I am again challenged to do baking main dishes with my oven. Then I thought of making BAKED CHICKEN IN CREAM which is my favorite since I was a kid.
BAKED CHICKEN IN CREAM is the simplest chicken recipe using an oven. It is easy as ABC. It doesn’t need to be an expert doing this dish as long as you put your heart in all you do in the kitchen.
BAKED CHICKEN IN CREAM
3 tbsp. butter
1 kilo chicken, cut-up (breast, thigh, leg)
1 cup Nestle lite cream
2 medium onion, peeled and quartered
3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed

Wash chicken with running water and dry with a clean towel.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Slip the chicken into the pan and cook partially until browned about 8 minutes, turning several times so that chicken won’t stick. Transfer on a plate and set aside.
