not sure if i made this right.. the wine was sort of overwhelming for me. but i'm not a big wine person. Also, are you supposed to put the chicken in the same pan and the wine/broth mixture?? and THEN add the sour cream and mustard? didn't seem correct to me because there was so much wine / broth when i added the chicken. i'm not a great cook, although i try, but i probably did something wrong here. i gave the recipe 3 stars because i don't think i made it correctly.. and it looks yummy in the picture atleast!


OMG!!!! Delicious! This was so easy to make and full of flavor. Definitely a keeper for my family.


Yummy, a hit with my picky husband! And the chicken is so tender (I was afraid I undercooked it).


Delicious, juicy and oh-so-tender. I made this for my mom and two of my friends who promptly asked for seconds. This one's a keeper.


Absolutley a hit w/ the family, delicious. Didn't have chive so used scallion from my garden and I dipped the chicken in buttermilk prior to dredging in corn flour.

My son and I are both lactose

My son and I are both lactose intolerant so I've used the plain yogurt & flour when making beef stroganoff. Thanks for reminding me. There is also a tofu brand of sour cream: "Better than Sour Cream" by Tofutti. Has no dairy, cholesterol, lactose or butterfat. They also make a cream cheese version. I like both. You can find them in the dairy dept. next to the real stuff. --Claudette
