This is a top drawer comfort dish. I used the recipe as written with the single exception of cutting the chicken into pieces ( used a frozen breast that was pretty ragged and wouldn't have looked nice cooked as it was. I finely minced the onion (DH isn't a fan but I just can't cook without them) and proceeded as directed. The onion and basil gave a good flavor base. This was ideal over potatoes and it's very quick and easy to make. Made for PAC, Spring 2011.

Delicious without the 2 tsp. Cayenne pepper I knew when I saw that it won't work for me. So just used a pinch. We added fresh asparagus to it as well. Also the sour cream someone suggested It was very good. Thank you.
