    Schmecky's Note:

    Oh my! This is my favorite recipe ever! I sometimes triple the recipe just so I have lots of leftovers because it heats up well. It's so delicious! I got it from one of those old mailings that used to belong my mother-in-law, but she never made it. Too bad because my husband loves it... and I get all the credit for it! It had chopped green onions in the recipe but I HATE onions so I took them out... I forgot to list them for everyone else who likes them! Also, I recommend white COOKING wine because real white wine comes through too strong in my opinion. And just a note: If you don't follow my recipe and you don't like the way it comes out, don't give ME a bad review. You should have cooked it the way I make it.

    1. 1
      Wash chicken.
    2. 2
      Pat dry.
    3. 3
      In bowl, combine the flour, oregano, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Place chicken in bowl and mix to coat chicken. This will help thicken the sauce.
    5. 5
      In large skillet, heat the oil.
    6. 6
      Brown the chicken. (I throw the remainder of the flour mixture in with the chicken in the pan so that it will thicken the sauce enough.).
    7. 7
      Don't cook too well as it will finish cooking in oven.
    8. 8
      Arrange chicken in 9-by-13 inch baking dish.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle with mushrooms.
    10. 10
      In separate bowl, mix together the sour cream and tomato paste.
    11. 11
      Add wine and mix until mixture is liquidy (I find a hand beater, on low, works well for this).
    12. 12
      Add salt and pepper to taste.
    13. 13
      Pour mixture over the chicken.
    14. 14
      Bake, covered, at 350-F for 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken is done.
    15. 15
      Remove cover and cook an additional 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes for sauce to thicken.
    16. 16
      Serve over rice.

      This made a great quick dinner tonight thank you. I don't like "boiled" mushrooms, so fried mine in the oil (then removed them to a plate) before frying the chicken. I increased the salt to 1 tsp in this dish and that was good as we like salt. It's a simple recipe which works well, but we all thought onion, bacon, prosciutto or green onions would be good in it too if you had them laying around. We ate it over rice, but thought it would be just as good over pasta or mashed potatoes. I will be making this again soon.

      Made a few minor changes to this one. Not a fan of mushrooms so left them out but added sliced red peppers instead, also added green onion. Served over rice and this is definitely one I'll be making again.

      This is one of our favorite dishes, EVER! My old recipe calls for a marina5e in the cream sauce OVERNIGHT, then cooking the next day. Also don't do mushrooms and top it off with some cheese at the end/ really give it a good drying bake towards the completion. But people who are CHANGING THE RECIPE and RUINING it and then RATING it are missing the whole point of this. STICK TO THE RECIPE. It's delish! If you screwed it up by trying to be creative and didn't like it you didn't like your OWN recipe. THIS one is deeeelish! We've made it many times over the past 10 yearrs and everyone adores it. Just be sure to MARINATE it for even better flavor. And use a GOOD WHITE WINE/ a sweet one! :) (And the cheese before you serve it. Yum!) =)
