Dish recipe - chicken breast in cream cheese sauce with vegetables
Composition of food for the dish:
- Chicken Breast - 0.5 kg.
- Hard cheese - 0, 150 kg.

The process of cooking chicken breast in a cream cheese sauce with vegetables
1. Chicken fillet is better to take chilled. Rinse and clean of fat and blood, dry thoroughly. We will cook the whole breast without cutting (if you have a large fillet, you can cut it in two).
2. Grate it with spices to taste. I use black pepper, nutmeg, curry and basil.
3. Fry the fillets in a pan on high heat on both sides until golden brown (about 2-4 minutes on each side). You can pre-beat off a hammer, in which case it is necessary to cover the meat with food film to preserve the integrity of the fibers.
4. Now we are preparing a tender sauce. Add spices to the cream. Cream is better to take the maximum fat content, then the sauce will turn out thick and with a rich taste. If the cream is 10-15%, you can add a little flour. Or you can replace the cream with butter, milk or sour cream.
5. Pour chicken sauce, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
6. Next, it was time to garnish. Wash vegetables and mushrooms, clean if necessary. All cut into pieces.
7. Lubricate everything with oil and sprinkle with spices. You can take just salt and pepper, in this case - even basil and paprika.
8. Fry vegetables and mushrooms in a frying pan for 10 minutes. Potatoes need to be pre-boiled, otherwise, until potatoes are cooked - zucchini will turn into porridge.
9. Grate hard cheese (the type and type of cheese also affects the taste of the dish, try using different types of cheese).
10. Cover chicken fillet with cheese and cook for another 10 minutes on low heat. You can use 2 types of cheese: hard and melted for a more refined and creamy taste.
11. Put the fillet and vegetables on a plate, decorate with greens. Enjoy your meal!
