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.

"This is by far one of my all time favorite dishes! I followed the recipe pretty much to a T but used a little less mustard and a little less chives. Everything was amazing! I loved the sauce! I used mashed potatoes and green beans for my...

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


It's easier to buy thinly sliced chicken breasts so you don't have to smack away at the chicken (altho it might be a nice way to take out aggression!!??!) When I went into my fridge I discovered that my chives had gone bad and I had no sour cream. I decided to do my own version.... I chopped up fresh Rosemary instead and added 2 slices of lemon to the sauce. Instead of sour cream, I had plain yogurt in the fridge (mixed 2 teaspoons of flour with it to make it thick like sour cream). My dad licked the plate clean and said it was the best chicken he had ever had in his life!!!! I have yet to do this real recipe, but I have to admit, I've made "my" chicken version 2 times this week, that's how good it is! Give it a try! You never know what magic you can come up with!

This is an excellent recipe. I've made it with both chicken breast and pork tenderloin. Can't decide which one I prefer. I found this to be fairly quick and simple to make. My family loves it too.
