READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by CulinaryQueen

Another one from The Philadelphia Orchestra Cook Book. This would probably work well with boneless chicken breasts also.

Really tasty and flavor packed!! Loved the recipe, easy to prepare. Only changes I made was instead of the tomato paste (I was out) I put in some chopped tomatoes (1/2 cup)...and I used half the amount of sour cream (again all I had on hand) but did not miss the rest. Will keep the recipe and use again.
