"easy to make! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. The chicken was moist and tender and we served it over rice. Next time, I'll add white wine in place of the water to round out the sauce a bit. An easy and versatile weeknight meal!"

"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!"

"This is pretty good! I used boneless, skinless breasts and baked it for about 45 minutes....could have come out a little sooner, but the sauce is yummy! I had it with buttered, Parmesan egg noodles, and what a combo!!"

"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."

"Very easy and very tasty! My family loved it too! I used skinless frozen chicken thighs which I sauteed in a little bit of olive oil with a touch of garlic and parsley prior to putting into the pan with the sauce on top. It was awesome!"
