Good Basic Recipe

Made this with the exception of using red onion in place of shallots and Greek yogurt. Sauce was very soupy and a little bland for my taste, but my boyfriend seemed to enjoy it regardless. I think next time I'll add some garlic, more pepper, and cut down on some of the liquids. Also, will remove the chicken breasts prior to stirring in the yogurt and mustard. I will definitely make this again with those few tweaks.

Easy to modify, great base recipe
Great, easy, healthy and delicious

I have made this dish many times. I reduce the broth and wine a bit to make it more creamy. I also remove the chicken prior to adding the sour cream, then add it back in. Works very well with roasted broccoli, just pour the additional sauce on the florets!


I like this as I can make it, vegan. I used less salt and added more garlic. Yes the wine can be reduced, that intensifies the flavor and helps thicken. Are you using chix stox, not water to mix your thickening agent? You can tweek the seasoning to suit your taste. I do like simple. So did my children! Thanx for sharing!raf


Bland dish with terribly thick sauce. Our entire family disliked this recipe as it was tasteless and the chicken was ruined by the thick sauce.

nothing good about this recipe

The sauce isnt supposed to be

The sauce isnt supposed to be thick..

Deliciously healthy

For those who think the sauce is too thin - just boil the wine and broth mixture for a few minutes before adding the chicken will reduce and become even better (don't skip adding the flour with the shallots - in fact, make it a heaping tablespoon)

Easy, healthy, yummy
