Chicken a la Crema – Food Wishes ctm magazine

I’m not saying I make the best Chicken a la Crema, but I am saying that my version looks the least like a cream sauce. Nevertheless, despite its less than creamy appearance, this really is an easy, and truly amazing chicken stew, featuring our old friend, crème fraiche. And yes, sour cream will work! Either way, this is one of my favorite chicken dishes of all time.

For the fully formatted, printable, written recipe, follow this link:

    Just made this for my family and we all loved it! I used sour cream and a bit of heavy cream too, it was delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe, I’ll definitely have to make this again! (:

    After all, you are the Al Capone of your chicken on the bone?

    i use a salvodorian crema ….trust me…this takes it over the top. This has a sweetness to it that makes it over the top.

    When you reference other recipes (here the creme fraiche and the Spanish rice) it would be very helpful to include the links in the comments (or, better yet, add end boards up top). Love your concise, simple-to-follow videos, CJ!

    Made this with a couple of rabbits. Fantastic.

  • Moses Amba on August 11, 2020

    I don't understand the removing of the skin from the chicken.

  • J Williams on August 16, 2020

    A great and famous youtube Chef, once said "Life is too short for regrets.." I think he was making Spicy Asian Noodles…or maybe a different video.. 🙂

  • Keith Callen on August 23, 2020

    You are, after all, the Pope John Paul, of how big your chicken pieces are… or how small.

  • Greg on August 30, 2020

    Fantastic recipe, people! Try it, literally step by step as shown in video – you won't regret it. I am "accomplished home cook" myself, but there is nothing that holds me from giving this this recipe a big thumb up. Just cut the salt by half (canned tomatoes and chicken broth already have salt in them). John – here is my "thank you"! I cooked this for the entire family (scaled up 3x).

    Discarding the chicken skin should be punishable by firing squad. Plus cilantro, really?

  • KT on February 17, 2021

    I made this a few nights ago with a side of Spanish rice. It was phenomenal! 😭 My family is still talking about it!

    Corn tortillas!!! Not flour ;(

  • Be on March 5, 2021

    TIP: Don't put salt on mushrooms while cooking them….it makes them mushy; add after they are browned. Dry them off well too! Dry chicken off well, makes them brown well…

  • Deborah Anderson on March 7, 2021

    I love your recipes, but your sing song cadence of speech is SOOOOO annoying!!!!!!!

    Cream fresh

  • Gary Noone on October 2, 2021

    I cannot imagine this without flour tortillas. Dang, this would be beautiful.

  • Leslee Gill on November 19, 2021

    I have used Cacique Crema Mexicana and it works great. Sort of like creme freche and quite tasty. Where I live I can only get ultra pasteurized cream, so I can't really make creme freche.
