Here's a sauce so delicious, it's missing only one thing: a little crunchy bread to dip in it. Make It a Meal: Serve with steamed asparagus or cauliflower, mashed potatoes or orzo pasta, and a glass of Vinho Verde.

Bursting with FLAVOR!

This was one of the first EatingWell recipes I tried and I am a die hard fan of it. First of all I love chives so that had me sold instantly. The first time I made this recipe I did not have white wine on hand but some Marsala wine which I used instead. It changed the flavor a bit but still came out tasting great! I prefer the sauce to be a little thicker so I generally add a little more sour cream and less broth and I have used onions in place of the shallots and the flavor is the same. Overall this is a light dish, but I love to have it with mashed potatoes and drench them in sauce!! It's definitely worth your time! :)


Definately a keeper. Sauce tasted amazing. Great for a regular week night or for company. If I were serving it to company, would want to thicken the sauce up a bit by adding a little less broth or increasing the amount of flour or sour cream.

Whole family enjoyed!

I was tired of cooking two ways for my family........."diet" for me, and regular for my family. This recipes was like by all and no one knew it was low calorie!

Easy & flavorful
Substitution question

Has anyone tried substituting greek yogurt for sour cream? Not a big fan of the latter. I always use this substitution in eatingwell recipes and it tastes great, but just wondering if anyone had any feedback!


Tried this last night. Was so good I had to share it with Facebook!
