Geschnetzeltes (Chicken in Cream Sauce)

“This is an easy quick meal popular in Germany. Veal is traditionally used, but pork or chicken can be used as well. Some regions include sliced mushrooms while others would never consider adding it. The dish is often served over noodles with a side of Dampfkartoffeln (boiled potatoes).”
