This dish was good but not great. It does have possibilites. I didn't use the optional ingredients because of the kids but I did add pepper and dried thyme for some flavor. I think that frozen peas added before cooking would make this really good. This is one that I will be tweaking for our own personal preferences.
I didn't have any sour cream. Used cream cheese and extra milk. Made homemade biscuits. Forgot to put the cheese. Even without it the taste was wonderful! Dh said this was a definite keeper. DS said he was never gonna stop eating this stuff!!! DD's approved also! Will add to our rotation!
Well - I thought I had all the ingredients for this recipe. But when it came to the sour cream it was no where to be found in my fridge. So I poked around and found some Alloute herb and garlic cheese spread and thought I would give it a shot. I diluted it with some chicken stock and mixed it in and lo and behold this is now the most requested recipe in my house. Perhaps this is the "secret ingredient" some folks thought was missing.
