    Although chives are the main element in this creamy chicken sauce there are many levels of flavour that come from the garlic, mustard and cheese.

    Tastes unreal I cooked the chicken stir fry strips then cut them before putting in the sauce so it won't dry the chicken too much  -  08 Feb 2014


    This is a wonderful recipe. The first time I made it just as written. The second time I didn't slice the breasts but left them whole, topped with a roasted red bell pepper, then smothered all with the sauce. I served this over rice, and it really took 30 minutes or less to make. Thanks for the recipe!  -  10 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this and my family loved it! I definitely recommend it. The only change I made was use sour cream and half & half instead of the heavy cream and it worked just fine.  -  30 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
