Add the onion to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Return the chicken to the skillet and pour in the cream. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the chicken is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
