Chicken Breast in Sour Cream Sauce
Chicken is pretty much a staple in this house and sometimes it’s a little hard to find different ways to cook and serve it. I can take a whole chicken, cut it up and get at least three meals out of it for Paul and I.
This is one of our favorites. You can make this with chicken pieces but I’ve always used boneless chicken breast cut into chunks. The recipe makes a serving for 4 , when I make it for just the two of us I don’t cut the sauce in half, we love the extra sauce over noodles and it saves me the time of making a side dish.
The sour cream sauce is flavored with onion, sweet red peppers, garlic, paprika and chicken broth. It has an amazing rich flavor with a smooth and creamy texture.
You’ll feel like you’re eating a dinner made in a fine restaurant right in your own home. This recipe is easy to make, light on the pocket book and delivers big time with great flavor. Chicken Breast In Sour Cream Sauce, I hope it becomes as much a favorite in your house as it is in ours. Enjoy!
