Step 9 –Evenly sprinkle the flour over the chicken mixture and cook, stirring continuously, about 3 minutes.

Step 11 –Add the white wine and the heavy cream to the chicken mixture and stir well to combine.

Step 12 –Add 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, 1 teaspoon of the black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of the thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon of the basil to the chicken mixture and stir well to combine. Cook until it reaches a thick, stew-like consistency.
