I was unsure what to rate this, made as is, it was very good, the dill, scallion, sour cream and garlic make for a great sauce. I just felt it could do with something else, so I added a teaspoon of chicken stock powder and added some light cream to give the extra liquid needed with the added stock. My family did not know I had done this and raved and said it was delicious. So I am not sure what they would have said without this, for them it may have still got the same rave reviews. I served this over gnocchi (for quickness) and kept the chicken as whole breasts and sliced and served over the top. I really loved the dill flavour it was gorgeous and made for a great quick and easy mid week meal with a wonderful result. I will be making this again. Thanks Sydney Mike

Tasty and different kind of dish. Mine wasn't pretty as the potatoes cooked too much, even though I had them on a timer. Although this didn't affect the flavor so much, it through off the texture just a little bit. I used ample fresh dill and thought the seasonings were just right as is. Thanks, Sydney Mike! Made for Zaar Stars tag game.
