      This was outstanding - mostly because my hubby couldn't tell it was healthy. He said, "How could I not like something that's so creamy and cheesy." Well, I hadn't added any cheese... that's just how good it was. The only changes I made was to use wheat saltine crackers since that's all I had in the pantry and I didn't use any oil to cook the chicken in. I think the next time I will try different spices on the chicken...taco seasoning would be great. I love when my hubby tells me that I have to make a dish again... he said that at dinner last night between mmmmmm sounds :) Thank you for posting this healthy recipe!

      Great simple recipe. Family loved it, and it baked up so quick. I made it to the letter, and the whole time I was wanting to mix in some vegetables. I decided not to, and the result was surprisingly good. Just make sure to serve some on the side. :) Sauce was tasty, and didn't need much seasonings. I was worried about it being too bland, but the taste of the sour cream really balanced it out. I used less than 1/2 cup butter. Will make this again, but I'll probably tweak it a little. Thanks for posting!

      Oh my gosh! I seriously had to tear myself away from the pan! This was so good!!! The only thing I did differently was to add a can of mushrooms to the sauce mixture. This is a new family favorite for sure! Oh.........and it's so easy too! woo hoo!
