This recipe has only three ingredients, chicken, cookies and creme fraiche. I think it needed a few more. It was a bit bland. Truthfully, mine became a kind of cinnamon pepper chicken in creme fraiche and I ask you, what's wrong with that? While the recipe as a whole didn't excite me I was happy to cook with creme fraiche. I see it in recipes all the time and Dorie often recommends it in her recipes but I never actually tried it. Dorie's right...sour cream isn't the same thing...not at all! Its more like a cross between buttermilk and sour cream with a tad of heavy cream thrown in. I'll warn you though, it is a bit pricey $5.99 here in OKC for a 6 oz. tub!
