“An easy and delicious way to prepare chicken breasts. Works best with skinless AND boneless breasts, but breasts with the bone in will also work. Adjust the seasoning to taste.”

Made this last night and it was very good. I read the other reviews and only cooked my chicken in the oven for 35 minutes. Let's face brown it on the stove first and that cooks the chicken at least half way through. We added garlic and chopped onion to the sauce. We found the amount of fresh thyme & rosemary was perfect. It was very tasty; hubby loved it. We will make this again.



This was pretty tasty. The mixture of sherry and sour cream made a nice tangy sauce. I added 2 cloves fresh garlic and 2 cups sliced (fresh) mushrooms to the butter after I browned the chicken. I placed these on top for the last fifteen minutes of baking time. I also cut the bake time down to 45 minutes. A keeper! Thanks.



This is a great base to a fantastic combination of flavors. I added a few things: shallots, garlic & mushrooms. I also used 1.5 cups of sourcream and 1/2 cup sherry (Oloroso - Cream Sherry) so I could put this on a bed of rice with more sauce. I only kept this in the oven for 40 minutes (35 minutes and then 5 more with some parmesean/romano cheese melting on the top).
