Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 35 – 45 minutes. While the chicken bakes make the creole cream sauce. Melt butter in a sauté pan over medium heat. Remove from heat and blend in flour until smooth.

Place back on heat and whisk in heavy cream until smooth. Add some fresh thyme. Gradually whisk in chicken broth until blended. Add Cajun and Creole seasonings to your preferred taste. I’m not very brave when it comes to spicy dishes so I stick to a 1/2 teaspoon of each seasoning.

Continue stirring until sauce thicken. Lower heat to low and allow to simmer stirring occasionally while the chicken roasts.

Remove chicken from oven.

Serve with Creole cream sauce and roasted vegetables. For an easy and delicious menu that uses the same oven temperature and roasting time, perfect for cooking the two dishes at the same time, see my Roasted Vegetable recipe. – Ella
