Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large non-stick frying pan, heat oil and cook onions until almost soft. Add garlic and mushrooms, cook til mushrooms soften. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. Chop chicken into bite sized pieces Brown chicken in hot pan, adding more oil if required.
  3. Add onion, garlic and mushroom mixture back to pan. Stir in chicken broth and Italian herbs.
  4. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, simmering over low heat.
  5. Add sour cream, thickened cream and bacon, stir through until warmed, DO NOT boil as it will separate. Just heat it gently for a few minutes until the flavours blend.
  6. For a change, add broccoli pieces in the last few minutes of cooking, or green beans, corn niblets -- serve over pasta if you like or as a dish on it's own. A definite favourite at my house!

Fabulous, adaptable recipe. It's been enthusiastically received both times I've made it for my family. I dressed it up with fresh herbs - thyme and oregano - and used chanterelle mushrooms. Funny thing: my son asked me, "What do you call this chicken?" and I replied, "Fabulous!"

A easy recipe that has dinner on the table in 30 minutes. I did sprinkle the optional bacon over each individual serving as well as freshly grated Parmesan. I think that additional garlic and/or some red pepper flakes would be a nice addition. Made for *PAC Fall 2008*
