Questions & Replies

  1. I found this recipe in my mothers recipe box! My question I cover with foil or lid while baking for the hour and a half?


  1. Very yum. Sauteed a small onion and mushrooms in a bit of oil first. A little parsley for color. Company-grade. Thanx chris_tam!
  2. This was really easy and very good. I sauteed some mushrooms and used chardonnay rather than the sherry. Thanks chris_tam for a simple and tasty keeper. Made for I Recommend Tag.
  3. YUM! This was great, followed the base exactly, except added some fresh sauteed' broccoli (using the stems and crown - not the whole crown) and also sauteed the mushrooms, (also fresh) browned the chicken breasts, and put her right into the oven. YUM-Goodness right on a plate!! Will do this quite often!
  4. Excellent! Sauce much improved the next day when whisked together with liquid (from chicken cooking) and poured over cut-up ckicken meat. Rice pilaf and peas made it a perfect meal. Thanks.
  5. My grandmother taught me how to make this over 50 years ago and I continued to use it for years, only difference was using white wine instead of sherry. Was great for company as one didn't need to be in the kitchen so much - it's so easy - and it always received rave reviews.


  1. Browned chicjen first with crushed garlic.
  2. I love this recipe!...i made it using only one tbsp of sour cream and cream of chicken instead of mushroom. I also saute onions, red pepper and mushrooms with olive oil. The chicken was so tender and tasty. I served with bake potatoes. It is a keeper recipe!...Thanks for posting :)
