This recipe was GREAT. We didn't have chives and we added artichoke hearts to the recipe. It gave the sauce great flavor. Very easy. Will definately make it again!!
Sauteed Chicken Breasts with Creamy Chive Sauce
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.

I made this chicken on Sunday for a family dinner! EVERYONE loved it! I served it with mashed potatoes and sweet peas, really complimented the chicken. I took the advice of several other reviewers and went easy on the chives and didn't use quite so much chicken broth as I wanted the sauce to have the consistency of a gravy. The chicken was wonderfully tender and exceptionally tasty. I arranged it on a serving platter, and put the remaining sauce in a gravy boat so my guests could put it on top of their mashed potatoes.
Will definitely make again! You need to give this recipe a try!
I love this recipe and I have made four or five times. It's my go-to when I have guests over for dinner during a busy week night.
I did what other reviewers said and only used 1 cup of broth, I added mushrooms, and used reduced-fat sour cream. I didn't have any shallots so I substituted for finely chopped onions. It was a delicious way to make a creamy sauce without a lot of fat. Next time though, I might even cut down on the liquid a little more.
My family really like it but I thought it was ok. If I make it again, I will use 1/2 the broth and maybe use real sour cream. That, I think, is why the sauce was so anemic looking. I had to wisk it to get the light sour cream to incorporate. I like the idea of adding garlic and mushrooms.
