    Jen T's Note:

    One for when you don't want to turn the oven on! Made on top of the stove in a frypan with a lid or a saucepan. This comes from my book of 'Classic Kiwi Recipes' Note:Based on the reviews I realised that I use a frypan with a steam hole in the lid so that some of the liquid evaporates. I have altered the recipe to use only 1/2 cup water so that should help too. When bringing the liquids to the boil for the 2-3 mins make sure you do this without the lid to evaporate the liquids to your preference before adding the chicken back in and the sour cream. I hope this extra information helps those who would also like to try this dish. :)

      I made this for Random Tag. It is a nice quick dinner for a summers evening. Made this using boneless chicken breasts which had been flattened for more even cooking and increased the paprika by approximately half. I agree that the sauce was a little on the thin side and probably would have been better to have thickened it up a little bit. Served it with a side salad and brown rice.

      Made this tonight using boneless chicken breasts and served it over egg noodles. It was yummy. I think next time though I'll use less water, as my sauce was a little on the "thin" side, and more paprika for the taste.
