This makes a really yummy sauce. My only complaint was that it made very little sauce. I ended up adding an extra 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup water, just to make a little more of it. Next time, I think I'm going to just double some of the sauce ingredients and add a little chicken broth. We had enough sauce to go on the rice, but it would have been nice to have some for the chicken as well. Other than that, I have no complaints. I used chicken breast tenders, since they were on sale, and I think I would do that again. I just had to cut down the cooking time a bit. I wouldn't be opposed to having it again, since it was pretty good.

This is a very tasty and simple way to make a chicken dinner that seems a little fancier than most. I have the same one on a Knorr pamphlet (mine calls it Country French Chicken Skillet) but the proportions are a bit different. So I tried your recipe and I think I like it better. I cooked just two chicken breasts, about 5 minutes per side, and used about 1 1/2 cups of the water. And I don't bother taking the chicken from the pan before adding the sour cream at the end. This one is a frequent dinner at our house.
