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.

Made this for dinner today as my hubby and I are trying to eat healthier and in our culture, dishes are tasty but not very healthy.
I used 1 chicken breast for the 2 of us as it was very big, so adjusted ingredients accordingly. I didn't use salt as my chicken stock already contains salt, i used natural yoghurt and cream (to tone down the tanginess) as I didn't have sour cream and dried parsley flakes as i don't have chives. I served it with mashed potatoes and a leaf salad containing sweetcorn with a caesar salad dressing. It was very tasty, quick to make and i'll be making it again but hopefully with the sour cream! Thank you!

Quick to prepare

Fast+Delicious. Added capers and served over noodles (probably should have served over steamed vegetables though). This one is a keeper.

Delicious (:

The chicken? Fantastic! I ate one piping hot. It smelt amazing, and I couldn't wait.


Really liked this recipe. Hubby doesn't like chives, so I just sprinkled some on mine. Since it is just the two of us, I diced the leftover chicken. I combined the leftover chicken and sauce with hot cooked pasta (or noodles) to make another meal.

Everyone ages 1-34 loved!

I made this tonight and loved loved loved it! It took me a little longer to make than it likely will in the future because I was double-checking the recipe every ten seconds, but even at that is was quick. I made the extra effort to have cooking white wine on hand and it was well worth it. My 18 month old, 4 year old and 6 year old all loved it as well. Highly recommend!!

kid friendly, easy, low-cost,
