Chicken Supreme is a dish that combines tender and succulent chicken breasts with a velvety and flavorful cream sauce. The chicken breasts are typically pan-seared to develop a golden-brown crust, locking in their juices and adding depth of flavor. The creamy sauce, often made with heavy cream and aromatic herbs, elevates the dish to a new level of indulgence.

Mushrooms are a common addition to Chicken Supreme, providing a delightful earthy contrast to the creamy sauce. The sauce itself is a key component, infusing the dish with a luscious texture and a balanced combination of flavors. The use of Dijon mustard adds a subtle tanginess, while dried thyme and rosemary contribute aromatic notes that enhance the overall taste profile.
