Tangy, flavor-packed chicken in a rich cream sauce. Great with farfalle (bow tie) pasta (though I like to serve it with the unlikely partner of a hearty brown rice because I'm a rice nut). Killer Artichokes (from this site) and a glass of chardonnay make outstanding partners.

Lovely. Having no sour cream in the fridge I substituted half and half. Also I increased the sauce a bit because I served over bowtie pasta and well let's face it you can never have enough sauce! I might ease back a tad on the salt next bime but my husband thought it was perfect as is. This tasted like something you would get in a fine resturant but was so simple and made with ingredients I had on hand. Does life get better than this!?! Read More

Made this to a T - found it very very bland. The sour cream coats the mouth making the sauce almost grainy and quite unpleasant. Would not make again. Read More

This was a very tasty dish. I did not have wine on hand and used chicken broth instead. I agree that capers would be good in place of olives and you could even add artichokes (non marinated kind). I poured the whole thing over a box of farfalle and doubling the sauce would be good since the pasta soaked up a lot of the sauce. I will make this again! Thanks! Read More

This was delicious! I didn't know how much milk to add so I just poured a little in. I didn't add the olives and added 1/2 a cup of sun-dried tomatoes instead of 1/4 a cup. I served the chicken and sauce over bow-tie pasta and it was delicious! Thanks for a great recipe! Will def. use again! Read More

Fabulous! We're not big Italian fans but the flavors of this chicken & sauce were wonderful! Made this in the crock pot using frozen chicken tenders which also made this so easy! I did substitute a can of chopped tomatoes w/garlic & onion for the sun dried tomatoes and added a chopped red bell pepper and a can of artichokes. I also used a small jar of capers & the green olives but the olives definitely made the difference! I mixed everything but the chicken & artichokes together & then layered the chicken sauce & artichokes. Cooked on high 5 - 7 hours. Ladled it over bow tie pasta. Thanks for the recipe! This will be a great dish for potlucks and soooo easy!! Read More

Flavorful and delicious! This is not your run of the mill bland chicken dish. I made 1.5 times the amount of sauce called for in the recipe and served it over farfalle which was fabulous. Next time I will double the sauce though rather than just 1.5ing it. Read More

Excellent! I sliced and cut up a chicken breast but I should've cut the pieces smaller so tenders would have been better. Flavor is rich but not overly. I can imagine many alterations and substitutions for a variety of flavors: capers black olives parm. cheese shrimp. Read More

This was recommended on the Recipe Exchange (tab at the top) and I liked the flavors. I had to substitute capers for the olives but they have a similar briny flavor. I did not serve it over pasta or rice to save the carbs. Adding an extra splash of white wine at the end really makes it special! Read More

Delicious! I loved the tangy tomato taste with the olives. I feel like the sauce could've been a little richer though. Read More

I made this while in a very "Italian" mood- very good even though I didn't have the indgredients on hand. I substituted sun dried red peppers for the tomatoes- I didn't have any sour cream on hand so I used half and half. I servied in over gluten-free fettuccine. Excellent I will definetly keep this one.
