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.

Chicken was awesome, but I just could NOT get the sauce to work, way too runny, tried reducing it but it didn't ever look close to the picture, more like a soup, plus the sour cream was floating around in these little clumps, not very appetizing, I had high hopes for this dish and I think I'll try it again with several modifications

As for the sauce/soup you refered to, I can suggest mixing some of the cooled sauce or just enough water to dissolve) with a teaspoon or two (depending how thin it is) of arrowroot, or twice the amount of flour (I prefer the arrowroot) & whisk it together, add it backto the pot and return to heat until it thickens. Also a whisk will help to smooth out the sour cream problem you had. Hope this helps, just try it again. Good luck.

I will make this again! We grilled whole thighs for two reasons - it IS summer and I can’t keep him away from the grill and I prefer using the meat’s natural juices instead of adding fat (olive oil) to boneless skinless breasts. To keep the fat and calorie count low just remove skin after cooking, before adding sauce.
I used a fresh sweet onion (including greens) instead of shallots because a previous comment said the shallots were a bit strong/bitter, so the sauce was slightly sweet and very tasty!
French bread for dipping was a wonderful suggestion. S.O.S. made from this sauce, picked chicken & French bread was a wonderful lunch the next day.

I agree that the breast were very moist, but if I make this recipe again I will use less shallots. Their flavor overpowered anythign else and was almost bitter.

I made this dish last night for a dinner party. Very easy to make. Chicken came out juicy and the sauce was light. Was a huge hit, even for my "picky eater" friend. Would recommend to anyone! Just make sure your skillet heat is up high enough to brown the chicken.

My grocery store actually had thin breasts already cut so I could avoid the first step!
