    CulinaryQueen's Note:

    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.

      Really good and easy too. I used boneless chicken breasts, sliced them into tenders, pounded them a little bit and the other change I made was to use some cayenne pepper in the finished sauce. I didn't have to simmer the sauce for 45 min. as recipe states, chicken was done after 10 minutes and I liked the texture of the sauce. Served with wild rice and fresh veggie. Very good!!
