Simply an awesome dish! the chicken is so tender and the sour cream sauce just melts in your mouth, everyone loved it!
I love the simplicity of a dish that doesn't need a lot of ingredients to produce a wonderful flavor. The directions are well written and easy to follow. After baking, the sauce seemed a bit thin. I removed the chicken, and cooked the sauce 5 minutes - scraping the residue on the sides of the pan back into the sauce and adding a bit of salt. The sauce was perfect for spooning over mashed potatoes and the nicely balanced flavors of browned chicken, mushroom, sour cream and paprika was delicious. I will add this to my favorites list.
I made this dish today, and it was REALLY good! I did make a few changes however. I used 4 lg. chicken breast halves. I cooked the chicken exactly as directed, then set in a 13" glass casserole dish. I made the sauce to pour over the chicken, using 1 10.5 oz. can Campbell's low sodium chicken broth instead of 8 oz., and about 1 1/2 c. sour cream instead of 1 c. and 2 small cans mushrooms instead of fresh. I cooked the chicken for 1 hr. because my breasts were thick. I added 3 T. of cornstarch and 3 T. cold water to the pan I cooked the chicken in. I stirred it in really well. I then added all the liquid from the chicken dish into that pan. I put it on med-high heat and stirred it until it got thick and the starchy taste was gone, then turned the heat off and let it set for a couple of minutes. I added salt and pepper, to taste. I spooned the sauce over the chicken, and served with oven baked potatoes with some of the sauce and a little butter in the potato. It was delicous! Check out the pictures I posted. You will see how thin the sauce was and how the consistency changed when I added the cornstarch and water. If you don't like the light color of the gravy, add a little Kitchen Bouquet or Gravy Master to darken it up. Enjoy!
