Chicken with Stilton Sauce
This creamy Chicken with Stilton Sauce is a firm favourite – even with non-Stilton lovers. The addition of creme fraiche makes it a little lighter than some of the other cream based sauces.
Chicken with Stilton Sauce is an old French recipe which is perfect served with some fresh steamed vegetables and for the bigger appetite some baby boiled potatoes work well too.
For the Stilton loathers out there, I have kept the amount of Stilton added to a minimum, obviously you can add extra to suit your taste buds. My husband is not a lover of this blue veined cheese, however I do, so I go somewhere in the middle to please all.
