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.

Not creamy at all

I followed this recipe and did not get the creamy sauce that was promised. Mine is very liquidy. It's sitting on the stove right now while I decide what to do with it. I'm very disappointed as I can't remember the last time a recipe I followed went so badly. I will not be making this again.

The flour is meant to create

The flour is meant to create a roux to compensate for the lack of naturally thick ingredients. The recipe doesn't mention that the liquids must be added little by little, allowing the sauce to thicken each time before adding more.

This is one of my favorite dinners. It's a bit of a pain to make but so good. I buy chicken cutlets which are already sliced thin to skip the pounding step.

DELISH!!!

Absolutely Delicious

A great recipe that is fairly quick, uses only one pan and healthy too. This is an east yet rich tasting dish that I would definitely serve to company!

Tastes like comfort food!

DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly, except I took the chicken out of the pan when I added the cream and then added the chicken back in. Also, I used Greek yogurt in place of sour cream because it adds more protein, is a much healthier option, has the same flavor and texture, and is what I had in the fridge. I will DEFINITELY add this as a dinner staple.

Easy, delicious, good leftovers

Amazing Meal!

I decided to make these on a whim, and I'm really glad I did! Since I'm not a cook in the slightest, it took me way longer than 35 minutes (closer to an 1 hr+); it took me longer because I'm new to cooking and my pieces of chicken were THICK (I didn't tenderize them). However, it was well worth the effort. I wouldn't consider this cheap, but it wasn't breaking the bank either, so it's doable on a weekly/bi-weekly basis.

I did make adjustments according to what I already had, so I didn't buy every single thing on the ingredients list. Instead of shallots I used 1/2 a large onion (diced) and 1 clove of garlic (minced) and I omitted the wine. I also used green onions instead of chives (but next time I'll try chives), and I ended up using a bit more olive oil and salt. It was GREAT.

Whether you're a skilled cook or new to cooking, I think this recipe is worth a good try (whether you follow this recipe to a "T" or you modify it). It can easily feed four (maybe five!) people and the sauce can be used with mashed potatoes and corn too. This is definitely one meal I will try and try again because it just ROCKED.

Make this meal!!!

reasonably priced, delicious, easy
