3 stars because the original is way too high in calories fats and sodium. I made major changes to ingredients cutting way back on butter----1-T for flavor a little canola oil and spraying the nonstick pot with PAM. Threw in a package of sliced baby bella mushrooms & a diced onion first cooked them a til onion was transparent then removed added a little more oil and browned the chicken a little. Used skinless chicken thighs(more flavor) and breast strips. Returned the onion mushroom mix to pot added seasonings--salt pepper poultry seasoning(all to taste)& 3 cans of low sodium chicken stock and simmered until meat was tender. Used 8 oz. each of low fat & fat free sour cream. If it needs thickening add a little corn starch and water before adding sour cream. Served over instant brown rice(I added a little onion powder to it) and tossed some chopped green onions on top. A bit more work but I'm suppose to be on a low sodium low fat low everything if it tastes good spit it out diet. Read More

The chicken had a good flavor but the sauce cannot be called a gravy. I used 1/4 cup less water than was called for and it was still VERY runny. Read More

Very tasty! It makes a lot of gravy which I appreciate. I would have preferred the gravy to be a little thicker but that is a minor point. Read More

I love this recipe! The only thing I did differently was to sprinkle paprika on the chicken before browning in addition to the salt and pepper and I serve it over egg noodles. I do like the idea of thickening the gravy because it is too thin but still really tasty! My kids loved it so much it is now the requested birthday meal! Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe. I only used half the sour cream and homemade stock. A little salt and everything was fine. It certainly isn't bursting with flavor so if you don't like a more mellow chicken dish this is not for you. It makes great leftovers. Perfect over rice. Read More
