Chicken with apples in cream sauce



Chicken with apples in cream sauce

This is a simplified version of chicken à la Normande. It is very easy and children really like this. 

I prefer sour apples, like Granny Smith, because the sweeter varieties make the sauce a bit too sweet to my taste. 

If you use a whole chicken, you can cook it cut in pieces or whole filled with an apple part.
