Delicious!! I made only 2 chicken breasts but the full amount of sauce. It wasn't necessary but it will be wonderful to have in the freezer. This was easy to put together and we loved having a 'company wothy' meal during the week. I'll be making this many times in the future. In memory of Twissis. RIP friend.
Just loved this chicken and sauce!!! I only made 2 chicken breast, but made the whole amount of sauce, as I was serving this over pasta along with some green beans. The only other thing I changed besides the number of breasts was to use low-fat sour cream, which still tasted out of this world good. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe Twissis!! Made for ZWT8.
Yummy chicken. I made this as directed except I changed it up a little bit in step 4. I added the brandy and flambed it . I like to pretend that I'm a gourmet now and then, And seeing all of the pretty flames helps me fulfill my fantasy. lol. Then I added the broth after the flames died out. It was a really nice dish and I totally enjoyed the sauce. Thanks twissis for sharing. Made for ZWT8 France.
Wow - great and flavorful chicken! Elegant look and taste but really very quick and easy to make. The chicken was very tender in this cooking time, and we really loved the sauce. Served topped with fresh ground pepper and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
