You know how I said earlier that I post eateries on my blog only when they come out 'that' good?Well this one's a winner!
It's rich, super-creamy with tender pieces of chicken tossed in, enveloped in the delectable sauce and you're gonna savor it to the last bite!Keep in mind that this dish is calorific so save it for special pampering moments!

2.Take out the chicken and place it aside. Now back in the pan, stir in the cream and spring onions.
3.Dissolve the chicken stock in water and add it to the pan. Next add milk, cheese and parsley.
