    I've been using this recipe for 35 years and it turns out perfect every time. No need to worry about curdling the sour cream. Serve this over noodles or dumplings.

      This was an great recipe. So simple... just like my mother used to make with common ingredients she always had on hand. This recipe is as good as hers (and she's Hungarian). I made the recipe as written and now that I've made it, I would NOT change a thing. Thanks so much for this genuine keeper.

      Very easy and quick to make and yet it didn't lose any of it's flavor. I used chicken tenders therefore it cooked faster than if I had used chicken breasts. Served over noodles with a side of peas and carrots. Made a great week night meal. Made for Dec 2010 Aus/NZ Swap.
