I liked this recipe, but like many other reviewers, made some changes. Because I had to go to work, I combined a can of low-sodium chicken broth, the onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and thyme in my slow cooker, and then added two bone-in chicken breasts. I cooked this on low for 3 hours. When I got home, I removed the chicken breasts from the slow cooker and poured the cooking liquid into a skillet. I heated the liquid to a boil over med-high heat and added 2 tbls of honey mustard (we were out of dijon) while I chopped the mushrooms and cooked chicken. I sauteed the mushrooms in some olive oil, then added them and the chopped chicken to the sauce in the skillet. Finally, I added plain non-fat Greek yogurt as a substitute for the sour cream, and let it all reduce for 15 minutes. This was great served over rice.
Very Tasty. Based on previous reviews and what I had on hand I made a few changes. I added a minced shallot and used a whole onion in with the mushrooms ( which I added a few white ones in with the browns . I used all chicken broth and didn't reduce it quite as much since I had added extra veges. I also added a little more Dijon and sour cream . I don't really think it needed all the extras but I was in a 'use up" mode
This was delicious, although we made some fairly substantial changes. We did as another reviewer recommended and added about 3 cups of chopped fresh spinach that we needed to use up. We also used about 3 tablespoons of fresh chopped tarragon because that needed to be used up, too... and wow am I ever glad we did! That totally made the dish! Because tarragon has such a delicate flavor, we used only 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme. We also used chicken thighs instead of breasts (the texture of the thighs worked better with the mushrooms than breasts would have). The only thing about the dish that wasn't perfect was that the sauce wasn't creamy enough. We used light sour cream, so that may be why. Next time, we may add extra sour cream and see if that makes it creamier. Overall, it was a hit! Thanks for posting!
