    Made to the recipe first time, enjoyed by my family as a comfort food! It was so easy to make that I didn't think it could possible be good, but IT WAS! And the aroma during baking was yummy! Second time made to the recipe but with thighs (removed fat and most skin) since that is what I had on hand; it was even better. It took longer than one hour for it to bake though. Next time I'll remove the bones as well. I also plan to omit the water since the sauce came out thinner than we like. Or try white wine instead as suggested below. Overall, this is going into the permanent file. I like that you can easily add your favourite "picante" to suit your family if preferred

    Excellent and Easy! Next time I am going to use boneless and skinless chicken. I am also going to have fun trying different soup flavors. For example, the golden mushroom soup gave this a wonderful caramel color. It looked as good as it tasted! I will also try this in my slow cooker also! Very versatile and with few changes can be customized to your tastes. Makes enough sauce to put over rice, mashed potatoes or pasta.

    So easy and so good. I used skinless thighs because that is what I had thawed. The chicken was so moist and the gravy(sauce) was wonderful. Put it over steamed rice and served green beans on the side. My husband went back for seconds, he loved it! And he isn't crazy about chicken! Gets five stars from me.

    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.
