Chicken With Sour Cream Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Roxanne in Scottsda

This is a delicious tasting chicken recipe with a "zip" to it. The vinegar in the sauce does it. The preperation takes some time, but it's worth it. My father-in-law used to make this and it's one of our favorites.

I'm sorry, but this had too much "zip" to it. I used a really good, mellow red wine vinegar, so i thought i would try the full half cup. It was way too m uch for us-I think a couple of tablespoons would have done. One other small problem I din't have time to query. 1/4? of mushrooms.
