  • Pinch of poultry seasoning
  • Pinch of cardamom
  • 2 cups milk
  • 300 gr./ 10 oz light cream cheese

Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Salt and pepper the chicken.
  2. In a large skillet add 2 tbsp of olive oil and sauté in medium/high heat the chicken pieces until fairly brown. Remove to a plate.
