This recipe can be very easily doubled or tripled as necessary. I serve this with buttered egg noodles and broccoli.

Very good, extremely fast and easy to customize. One family member hates tomatoes, so I left those out. I saved a couple minutes by sauteeing the onions and chicken at the same time. Added most of the broth, then the sour cream and warmed to a bare simmer. I also thickened the sauce with a bit of the broth mixed with cornstarch after I added the sour cream and cooked it down a bit. Added some salt and fresh ground pepper, too. I served it over herbed couscous with steamed broccoli on the side and it was a hit! Thank you so much for sharing this quick and simple recipe! Next time I'll add some mushrooms just for fun, I think.
