While my host parents are in Bali for a holiday, I tried to practice cooking most of night and I was looking for sour cream recipe last night. and I found lovely recipe in internet. It says chicken breast but I had only chiken thighs on hand so I used them instead chicken breast also, I added mushroom and sweet red pepper and served with rice. Chicken was nice and tender the sauce was nice and rich & goes really well with rice!!

I thought this was really good! I didn't have any onion, so I used a generous amount of onion powder. I also added garlic powder and black pepper as well. I used two Tblsp flour to thicken, but that was too thick for my taste. I think one is sufficient. I served this over white polenta, which was delicious! Thanks for posting! I will for sure make this in the future since I usually have these ingredients on hand.

Made this last night. I did add the garlic like suggested, fried in oil like recipe asked and still found it to be a little bland. I ended up using about 2 tblsp. of flour and it still wasn't that thick but ok. 1 tsp. won't get you anywhere.

I have followed the recipe and just added garlic. I served it with boiled potatoes and steammed vegetables and it was a great success.
