Outstanding! So rich tasting. I made a few changes. I cut the sherry, water and seasonings in half. I added garlic salt to the chicken cooking mixture. I used 1 cup wild rice (precooked). I also reduced sour cream to 1 cup and used Victoria Taylor toasted onion herb seasoning. I didn't reduce the cream of mushroom soup. I only used 3 chicken breasts. With about 5 minutes left cooking time I stirred the whole mixture up. I didn't use all the sauce as I had quite a bit compared to the chicken and rice combo. I also thought the flavor of the sauce would be great on salmon. I tried this sauce on some fresh steamed carrots - divine!
I'll be the first of many to review this recipe :D. I used brown and wild rice and one very big (Costco) chicken breast to make 2 servings and we scarfed it all. The flavors are great and it was well enjoyed on this cooling Fall evening. Served with fresh green beans it made a complete meal. Very glad I tried this.
