This is a "go to" recipe for a tasty, quick meal.

This was ok. It was missing something and there wasn't much sauce to it.I think doubling the sauce and perhaps adding mushrooms would make it better.

It has potential... I agree with Carol 39110 -- the thyme/tarragon flavor is VERY strong and there isn't much of a sauce. But it was good enough to warrant a second try.

We did not care for the thyme/tarragon flavor. It needs more of a sauce.

This was really easy to make and tasted great. As usual, I used cooking spray instead of the oil, to lighten it up just a little more.

So easy and so good! I left out the red pepper b/c my DH doesn't like them, but it still tasted good! My almost 2 year old daughter loved it!

Loved it! Be careful not to add the sour cream too early or it will curdle. Excellent flavor, big hit with my husband.
