    Hello, I’m a bit confused with this recipe, as the picture does not look the same as the recipe ingredients listed, the sauce also looks creamy, but there is no cream mentioned in the recipe.

      Hi Pat,
      Thank you for your interest in our recipe for Chicken Florentine. In order to get a creamier texture, you can add either a couple of tablespoons of cream or a couple of tablespoons of cream cheese at the very end to prevent the cream from separating.

    It was good, I did add one cup of chicken broth though to make it more moist.
