"Thyme gives this simple chicken dish its unique flavor," shares Harriet Johnson from Champlin, Minnesota. "I lightened up the original recipe by using reduced-fat sour cream. My husband loves this, as do friends from my Weight Watchers group."

"I really liked this recipe. It came together pretty fast and my family really enjoyed it. I served it over noodles as suggested and with a side salad. Great, easy, tasty, weeknight meal."

"This was quite good! I used regular chicken broth, which made it abit saltier so next time I will cut out the salt. The herbs were so flavourful and overall it was a very good healthy supper dish."
