Creamy Chicken and Thyme

Thyme gives this simple chicken dish its unique flavor. I lightened up the original recipe by using reduced-fat sour cream, but you'd never guess based on its rich, creamy flavor. —Harriet Johnson, Champlin, Minnesota

  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

    This was a very easy and delicious recipe. I served it over gnocchi. I did add a little more flour, because my sauce was very runny. This was be excellent over noodles or rice. I will serve it again.

    This was incredibly easy to put together and tasted like a lot of work. I served with rice, as I had some that needed to be used, but highly recommend serving with noodles. Will definitely do that next time.

    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.
