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.

Was great. Omitted the wine and used a little extra broth. My kids had a second helping. Yummy!

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.

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
