    I've modified my grandmother's recipe for the 21st Century. I can't have a dinner party and not asked to make this simple dish. Enjoy!

      I tried this recipe today - making it for someone else - but absolutely had to take some home for myself!! It was not only "world famous" it is "out of this world famous!!" I cooked it a bit longer to really crisp it up - and changed it to two servings - but still used enough chicken to fill up an 8 x 10 baking pan. I think I used more sour cream than called for in my scaled down recipe too - but - really and truly it is "to die for!!!" He's not lyin!!

      This was incredible!! So easy and delicious. I didn't have tarragon, so I used oregano, garlic salt and pepper. Wonderful. UPDATE: I made this again last night and cut WAY back on the butter (1 T total) was still very tasty and rich.

      After seeing this as the number 1 recipe for some time, I had to see what the fuss was all about. I am still wondering. Not only was it incredible bland, but it is a heart attack waiting to happen. I suppose "To Die For" Sour Cream Chicken is an appropriate name. The only one in the family who enjoyed this lives outside and eats from a bowl.
