           Hi Helan, You can find fresh cream in the markets. You can also make it at home by collecting the cream that forms on top of the milk.

          I made this chicken for tonite's dinner and everybody loved it. My husband kept licking his fingers. At night when I wished him good night, he said,"good night honey, chicken was delicious". Told him all credit goes to your website. This is the third chicken recipe that I have tried and my final dish looks just like your pictures. Thanks again. If you have more lamb recipes, pls share them.
