Tangy, flavor-packed chicken in a rich cream sauce. Great with farfalle (bow tie) pasta (though I like to serve it with the unlikely partner of a hearty brown rice because I'm a rice nut). Killer Artichokes (from this site) and a glass of chardonnay make outstanding partners.

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken and garlic in the pan. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Stir in the tomatoes, olives, wine, and parsley. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. Remove chicken and place on a plate, leaving the sauce in the pan. Stir sour cream, milk, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt into the remaining sauce.
  2. Whisk cornstarch and water together in a small bowl. Increase heat to medium and whisk in the cornstarch mixture. Continue stirring until the sauce has thickened. Serve the sauce with the chicken.

Lovely. Having no sour cream in the fridge, I substituted half and half. Also, I increased the sauce a bit because I served over bowtie pasta and, well, let's face it ~ you can never have enough sauce! I might ease back a tad on the salt next bime but my husband thought it was perfect as is. This tasted like something you would get in a fine resturant, but was so simple and made with ingredients I had on hand. Does life get better than this!?!

This was a very tasty dish. I did not have wine on hand and used chicken broth instead. I agree that capers would be good in place of olives and you could even add artichokes (non marinated kind). I poured the whole thing over a box of farfalle and doubling the sauce would be good since the pasta soaked up a lot of the sauce. I will make this again! Thanks!

This was delicious! I didn't know how much milk to add so I just poured a little in. I didn't add the olives and added 1/2 a cup of sun-dried tomatoes instead of 1/4 a cup. I served the chicken and sauce over bow-tie pasta and it was delicious! Thanks for a great recipe! Will def. use again!
