    easy, but next time I will use less sour cream. Would prefer it to be more tomatoey.  -  29 Jul 2012


    This was delicious and very easy to make. I used frozen chicken and cooked it twice the amount of time indicated. I also threw in quartered red potatoes which were delicious with the sauce.  -  19 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    After trying this recipe once, I doubled all the ingredients except the chicken because that wonderful creamy sauce is just fantastic on baked potatoes!  -  01 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
