This is a very easy and quick recipe to make. I like to serve it with French-cut green beans, seasoned with a little garlic. It is also good served over rice.

I tried it and this was really good. The chicken was very moist. I used 1 tblspn of dried tarragon and used onion powder instead of shallots because that's all I had. DELISH! Thank you for sharing!!

Yummy! With the leftovers the next day, I shredded the chicken, added a little more sour cream, and had a great chicken salad. This is an easy recipe that is two meals in one!
