DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly, except I took the chicken out of the pan when I added the cream and then added the chicken back in. Also, I used Greek yogurt in place of sour cream because it adds more protein, is a much healthier option, has the same flavor and texture, and is what I had in the fridge. I will DEFINITELY add this as a dinner staple.
Sauteed Chicken Breasts with Creamy Chive Sauce
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.

I decided to make these on a whim, and I'm really glad I did! Since I'm not a cook in the slightest, it took me way longer than 35 minutes (closer to an 1 hr+); it took me longer because I'm new to cooking and my pieces of chicken were THICK (I didn't tenderize them). However, it was well worth the effort. I wouldn't consider this cheap, but it wasn't breaking the bank either, so it's doable on a weekly/bi-weekly basis.
I did make adjustments according to what I already had, so I didn't buy every single thing on the ingredients list. Instead of shallots I used 1/2 a large onion (diced) and 1 clove of garlic (minced) and I omitted the wine. I also used green onions instead of chives (but next time I'll try chives), and I ended up using a bit more olive oil and salt. It was GREAT.
Whether you're a skilled cook or new to cooking, I think this recipe is worth a good try (whether you follow this recipe to a "T" or you modify it). It can easily feed four (maybe five!) people and the sauce can be used with mashed potatoes and corn too. This is definitely one meal I will try and try again because it just ROCKED.
Make this meal!!!
I have yet to make this meal, but I read every single review, and it seems to be amazing (to a "t" or with modifications).
However, I'm not a fan of wine in the slightest, and I've noticed people swap it out for chicken stock. So would I add the chicken stock AND chicken broth together?
I'm new to cooking, and I really don't want to mess up something that seems delicious. Any help would be great!
This was popular with everyone in the family. My daughter had fun helping me cook it and my son actually ate it all, which is saying something because he is a picky eater. Even my 16 month old polished this off.
I served this with a simple leafy salad as it is summer at the moment. But thumbs up from here.
I bought the thin sliced chicken cutlets to save time. This recipe makes a ton of heavenly sauce. I served this with mashed potatoes but it would be great with crusty bread, rice or noodles. Fantastic weeknight meal.
