Top Review by Garlic Chick

We absolutely adore this! I printed it out in 2006 and have used it many times since, just getting around to rating it now. I like to make it with the following adjustments: first, I use about twice the garlic and cut up the chicken into chunks so it will cook faster; also I add the chicken before the sour cream (I use low fat to save calories) and do not increase the heat at this point because I do not want to scorch the garlic and make it bitter; I usually put some fresh cut up mushrooms in to cook with the chicken. One thing I read in another review is to use basil pesto instead of fresh parsley so I often do that just using about one tablespoon, or I've used fresh julienned basil before, too. I like to serve it over pasta. Cooking this dish gives an aroma to the whole house. Easy and fabulous this is a great way to make a chicken dish fast! Thanks for posting and introducing me to a new favorite recipe!
