"This recipe is one of our favorites. So versatile, it also cooks beautifully in the crock pot when you use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Just yummy either way."

"My whole family loved it! I omitted the sour cream, and instead added in 1/2 cup of creamed corn. I followed the suggestions made by another reviewer, Chris1414. Turned out perfectly!"

"This recipe was easy to make and the chicken was very moist and tender. I used boneless breasts. My husband also loved it. The sauce was delicious and I served it over some egg noodles. I would definitely make this again."

"I have made this recipe several times, but I altered the recipe a bit. I use three boneless, skinless chicken breasts (and I don't cut them up). I sprinkle salt and pepper on each side of the chicken breasts, and then I shake them up one at a time in a large freezer bag that is filled with one cup of flour. I then follow the rest of the recipe exactly as it is (except that I only use four ounces of sour cream rather than eight). This recipe is fantastic. It's very simple, very affordable, and extremely tasty. I serve it with corn and long grain and wild rice."

"Whole family loved this!!! I used boneless, skinless chicken and only baked for about 30 minutes. Served over rice with the extra sauce in the baking dish!! I bet this would be a good slow cooker meal too, if using skinless chicken!"

"I made this last night and it was so good! Wish I had read the reviews first like I usually do. I used bone-in chicken thighs and left the skin on since the directions didn't say to remove it. My sauce did have grease sitting on top in places but everything was delicious! I will make it again but remove the skin first."

"Sooooo simple! I did not use the broiler chicken, but used chicken breasts instead. I put salt, pepper, and some onion salt directly on the chicken, dumped the rest of the contents over the top, and voila! Using chicken breasts, the dish wasn't greasy at all. Very good weekday recipe!"

"Super easy, fast dish! Whip it up with noodles and frozen veggies for a complete meal. I browned the chicken in a pan before baking. This helped remove some of the grease. I also think you could add more meat because I ended up with a lot of left over sauce. Tasty, quick dish."
