A delicious and healthy version of this traditional chicken dish! This has been one of my favorite chicken recipes for as long as I can remember. My mom got it from Diet Workshop when I was younger.

This was a great dish. I really didn't know what to expect from this recipe at first but it was so tasty. I used those dehydrated onions, fat free dressing and as I didn't have any tomato juice I used paste and added a bit of water. I made this with skinless breasts which cut the cooking time to about 20 minutes. I served this with steamed cauliflower and broccoli and brown rice. Thanks I will make this again, It was so good!

Easy. I opted for the chicken breasts and used sour cream instead of the yogurt. If I were to make this again, I think I would add some mushrooms to the sauce. The dressing made the sauce a little vinegary for our tastes and the chicken was just a touch dry, but overall it was still okay. Definately worth a try.

This is really a keeper! Some minor changes on my part. I used some homemade chicken broth(sodium-free) in place of the water. Did not have any onion powder, so added a drop or two of onion juice. Used homemade V-8 juice for the tomato juice. With my changes there might have been a slight difference in taste but not much as the items were pretty much ones used already. Needed to clear the cooking range for other uses so I baked this dish. The smell alone brought people running! Served this with jasmine rice with mushrooms, tomato salad and lavash bread. Great meal.Will add to my "Make Again" cookbook.
