From my long-lost treasure trove of recipes newly found, but this 1 identified the source. I used to get a RECIPE OF THE DAY E-mail from ContentMail & this was the recipe for 6/22/2001! They acknowledged Jo Ann S. who said "This is a favorite at my house when company is coming. Not only is it elegant, but it's easy to prepare and fool-proof. Since the alcohol burns off during cooking, it's also safe to feed to children." I happen to think Jo Ann is right. This sounds like it would be an easy-to-fix & elegant favorite at our table too. Enjoy!

Just loved this chicken and sauce!!! I only made 2 chicken breast, but made the whole amount of sauce, as I was serving this over pasta along with some green beans. The only other thing I changed besides the number of breasts was to use low-fat sour cream, which still tasted out of this world good. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe Twissis!! Made for ZWT8.
Delicious ! I made the reipe as directed except for subbing regular brandy. The brandy added an excellent flavor. I will make this again.
Yummy chicken. I made this as directed except I changed it up a little bit in step 4. I added the brandy and flambed it . I like to pretend that I'm a gourmet now and then, And seeing all of the pretty flames helps me fulfill my fantasy. lol. Then I added the broth after the flames died out. It was a really nice dish and I totally enjoyed the sauce. Thanks twissis for sharing. Made for ZWT8 France.
