“My father would make this when I was a child. When I make it now, it reminds me of home. It is a milk, rich and creamy recipe. My family's all time favorite! A one-skillet dish. Serve over hot cooked egg noodles or rice, if desired.”

  1. You can leave breasts whole or cut them up, whatever your preference. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and pan-fry until cooked through and juices run clear, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  2. Using the same skillet, cook onion in butter until translucent but not brown, about 5 to 8 minutes. Season with paprika and salt. Pour chicken stock into the pan, and bring all to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer; mix flour with sour cream until smooth, then whisk into chicken stock. Place chicken in skillet; simmer until chicken is heated through and sauce has thickened.

I'm rating this dish again because so many people feel the need to change it. I agree that it does seem a little bland. I promise you all....replace 1 Tbs with Emeril's Essence Original. This is the only change I needed to perk up the flavor without changing the overall taste of the dish. The sauce is not meant to be a gravy it is more of a sauce. It also thickens upon standing. I use brown rice. I have 2 VERY picky kids. I mean it PICKY!!! They will eat this any day of the week, probably even for breakfast! OOPS FORGOT....ALSO CHOP THE CHICKEN. IT DOES WONDERS FOR THE FLAVOR!

We pretty much followed the recipe but added some chopped garlic, sliced mushrooms and about 1/4 cup white wine, only used half the chicken stock, increased the flour and butter to 2 tablespoons each. The consistency was perfect! Served over noodles -- excellent!



After reading mixed reviews and loads of suggestions to fix the blandness, I have solved the problem. Add a small amount of chicken boullion when you add the broth!! I think it added just enough flavor to make this dish absolutely delicious!!
