- 1⁄2 cup white wine
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- Wash chicken and pat dry.
- In small bowl, cmbine the flour, oregano, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. Dust chicken with all the mixture (this will help thicken sauce).
- In large skillet heat the oil and brown the chicken.
- Arrange chicken in 9 x 13 baking dish. Sprinkle with the onions and mushrooms.
- In separate bowl mix together the wine, sour cream, tomato paste, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the chicken.

Hmmmmm..............I don't know what could have gone wrong with this, as I followed the directions perfectly. But we really, really disliked this. The sauce was bland and it did not go well over pasta. The only flavor that stood out was the wine, and I wish it had other flavors that matched it. Everything else was bland and flavorless. The sauce also seemed to separate during cooking, turning into unappealing lumps that had to be mixed back together. The chicken did turn out juicy, though. That was one good thing. Sorry cam7, this was not a keeper for us.Reply
Thanks for the tasty recipe. I have to say it did get eaten, but mostly by my husband and I. This recipe was a little too 'upscale' for my picky kids (2 teens and 2 younger)...does anybody out there know what I mean?! (Argh!) It had a distinct flavor - maybe mediterranean? It was a nice change from the traditional chicken dishes and I do appreciate that.Reply
