Mushroom & Herb Chicken

My easy skillet dish is a comfort food classic. It's also delicious with rice instead of noodles. No one will guess they're eating healthy with this one. —Betsy King, Duluth, Minnesota

    I used a rotisserie chicken instead of fresh and used fresh herbs and garlic. I wanted a little more gravy so I added a third cup of strong chicken broth and 2/3 cup milk to 3/4 cup sour cream. Added a dash of sherry, too. We enjoyed it. The recipe is a good "starter" one for you to use "what you have".

    Chicken was very tender and tasty. I served the sauce over mashed potatoes and it was delicious!

    We really liked this. It was easy and pretty quick to make. I thought the sauce was very good. I served it over noodles. Maybe next time, I might use rice.

    Very good dish! Easy enough to make on a busy weeknight without having to do a lot of prep work.

    I cut the chicken in strips. Other than that I followed the recipe as written.
