I made this recipe after 20 min and without the bell peppers. The taste depends on the cream sauce, so use decent broth and fresh peppers. I\'d suggest to add MUCH LESS flour than recommended here and to chop the basil very finely. Other than that, it was quick to make and good to eat. Thumbs up.

If your a vegetarien i recomend you to use either quorn or replaced the chicken with sweetcorn. it was a lovely meal for the whole family to share but i wouldnt make it very often, as it was quite rich for my taste. use less flour as i found it too bulky, add more mushrooms and use fresh ingredients to garentie satisfaction
