This chicken dish is extremely fast and economical. It makes a nice sauce that works well over brown rice or wide noodles. If you want extra sauce for leftovers, double the recipe. —Irene Boffo, Fountain Hills, Arizona

"I was looking for that "something different" chicken recipe. Found it! I didn't have cream on hand so used milk and sour cream instead. Took others advice and made extra sauce. Excellent results!"

"This recipe was easy enough to make but I did think it needed just a bit more flavor - so we added some minced garlic. I should have doubled the sauce! Very quick and tasty!"

"Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly as written except I used more onion. There was plenty of sauce, but will double the amount next time."
