Sorry, this didn't work for us...on many levels! Way to much work for just an OK taste....a half chicken breast was plenty enough for us, so I only used 3 chicken breast (wanting one for leftovers)...I had to finish cooking the chicken in the oven as it was not cooked through....found out at the last minute that I didn't have sour cream (I used yogurt instead). Even though I mucked up on the sour cream, I have a fairly good idea what the taste would be like, so would I do this one again? Probably not as there is many other recipes I would want to try before I came back to this one

Well not to sound to cheesy but this was simply delicious lol! Scaled it down to one breast that me and my mom split. The porcini powder was so unique and awesome! But you obviuosly really need to be a mushroom lover to enjoy this dish. Used more wine than chicken broth, and less sour cream other than that I made as stated. Great recipe!
