A New Favorite!

WOW! I tried this recipe the other night, and my whole family agreed it is a keeper! Adding this to my favorite recipes file- we will make this again and again! I would suggest that you DON'T substitute things in this recipe because it is THAT good when you follow it exactly. The only thing I did slightly differently was I added about 1/2 of my chives while the sauce simmered (before adding sour cream) and the rest were stirred in at the end. It was simply divine! Always looking for new ways to prepare chicken because my fiance gets bored of the same recipes, and this is a happy addition to our file!

Creamy but not heavy, sauce thickened well, YUMMY!!

Made this last night for dinner. Was delcious and my whole family loved it. I added a little extra sour creme and dijon and a little extra wine. Can't wait to eat the left overs for lunch! Will defintely make this again, real soon!

Family LOVED it
Very Good!

This dish was great! I used finely chopped onion & minced garlic instead of shallots. It was very rich with flavor and tasted like a dish from a fine resteraunt. I'm going to make again for sure!!

It was simple to make
Everything I'd hoped it would be!

I am not a cook. Thankfully, my husband is. However, I found this site, found this recipe and had to try it. It was WONDERFUL! Easy enough for a beginner and even my picky sons (5 & 15) loved it and my 17 year old daughter wants me to cook more. Thank you Eating Well!

Very easy to make especially for a beginner cook!

I made this meal for my family last night. It was so amazing and I can not believe this was certainly didn't taste like it and all 5 of us ate every bite!!

Easy to make, healthy
