Sour Cream 'n' Dill Chicken Recipe

Sour Cream 'n' Dill Chicken Recipe

With six children—16 to 6—and two boarders, it seems I'm always cooking for a crowd. (My husband says that we must have a revolving door!) So almost every recipe I use is doubled or tripled. This one is an updated version of the Sunday dinner my mother would have prepared—and the latest favorite with my family. You can easily get it ready Sunday morning, slip it in the oven, set the time and let it cook while you're away at church.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 8 to 10 chicken pieces, skinned
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped or 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1 can (4 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • Paprika
  • Cooked wide egg noodles, optional


  • 1. Place chicken in a single layer in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with pepper. Combine soup, soup mix, sour cream, lemon juice, dill and mushrooms; pour over chicken. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until chicken is tender. Serve over egg noodles if desired. Yield: 4-6 servings.

If you did not make it, do not comment. It was 18 to 1 in favor of the recipe!! Do not pass judgment on others."

"Very good! I used chicken breasts. I was out of mushrooms, but I made this anyway. It was delicious. The sauce is excellent, and the chicken very moist. I will definitely make this again."

"Also an all time favourite of mine. I use chicken breasts and serve with mashed potatoes. It is a very easy weekday meal that uses ingredients I always have on hand."

"Lots of the readers work full time and appreciate any time saving steps in recipes. This is not a gourmet recipe site but a home cooked meals site. Our moms used soups to flavor meals. As my mother said if you don't have anything nice to say dont say anything at all!

My family really enjoy the taste and I appreciate getting to eat something that tastes great before 9 PM!!!"

"This is one of our all time favorite recipes from Taste of Home. On those cool fall/winter days the most delicious aroma fills the kitchen and everyone is eagerly awaiting supper time. There is no hesitation serving this to important dinner guests as it always gets rave reviews and they want the recipe. I know when I warm up the leftovers in the staff lunch room - everyone comes in wanting to know what smells so good and could they please have the recipe. This dish reminds me of a chicken recipe that my grandma made - we loved it!!!"

"Next time I'll use half an envelope of onion soup mix and more dill weed so it's less salty and more "dilly". I liked the color that the paprika added."
