How to make a creamy sauce with no cream
To make the creamy sauce for this recipe, you’re going to use evaporated milk. You can use full fat or reduced fat. You can also use plain milk if you like, but please take care that you don’t boil your sauce rapidly or it will curdle. Keep it to a very low and gentle simmer.
- First, coat your chicken breasts (or thighs), in a mixture of flour and parmesan cheese. You can use all purpose, plain flour or Tapioca Flour to cut back on gluten. Tapioca Flour is made from cassava root and incredible for gluten free cooking and baking.
- Once your chicken is coated in the flour / parmesan mixture, fry them in a skillet (or pan) until golden browned on both sides and cooked through.
- Then add the sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms, sautéing them until the mushrooms are soft and the pan is filled with sun dried tomato flavours.
