  • Recipe substitution... Help

    I want to make a new recipe tonight but the sauce that you serve over the chicken cordon blue uses whipping cream, can I use something else that is much lower in fat but will still give a nice rich taste?? TIA

    Kula.. make a roux with butter & flour ("I cant belive its not butter" butter to keep it low fat) when the roux is brown in color add slowly FF chicken broth .. and season with S&P and chopped flat leaf Parsley (or dried) and add some lemon juice and zest

    The sauce should be thick & creamy and lower fat .. and have good flavor to it.

        Depends on what the creme is susposed to do. It also gives texture. You might want to try half and half or whole milk. Land o Lakes makes a fat free half and half that isn't bad, but it doesn't really help with texture at all.

          I love that stuff, but you're right only in certain recipes. You really need the heavy cream for some recipes, but the FF Half & Half has worked out great in a lot of recipes for me.

            me too. You can add a little parm or asiago or lowfat cream cheese if you need more thickness.

                Thanks for the great ideas, I actually used both, I found a low fat half & half but it didn't want to thinken so I made a roux to thicken it. The family was very happy & so was I because it was lower in fat. Again, thanks for all the help.
