Comment on this recipe

"The addition of a sprinkling of chili powder or a few fresh herb leaves adds a special flavor -- be inventive."

About 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons whipping cream, divided
1/3 cup chicken broth (homemade or canned)
