A delicious recipe! My husband is normally not a fan of dishes with cream sauce but absolutely loved this one and we will definitely make it again! The flavor is reminiscent of an old family recipe for "Creamed Wild Rabbit" which I've also made with grouse or chicken. I also appreciated that this is a low carbohydrate meal as I do count carbs.

NOTE: I did not have shallots available, but researched an appropriate substitution. I used two parts green onions and one part garlic and the taste was fabulous!



Chicken in Chive Sauce... What more can I say...

I really loved this chicken dish. Wonderful!! I butterflied a 1/2 lb breast for my husband and I. By butterflying I don't need to pound it much to get correct thickness. I added a little more sour cream and a little less Dijon than called for, because I think the Dijon can easily overpower the taste of the sauce.


Very good. My whole family liked it. Light and tasty. I thought it was a little too time consuming to prepare but maybe it will go faster next time.

I've been cooking for around 44 years, & I've found the more you do something, the less time it takes up to a point. You are on the right track with that though.


Fantastic! My family pronounced it a keeper!!! My only change was to add a some cayenne powder to add a little zing.
