  1. Melt the butter in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season the chicken pieces with a little salt and pepper, then place them in the pan. Cook, turning as necessary, until the skin is evenly browned.
  2. Pour the chicken broth and water into the pot, and bring to a boil. Stir in the bouillon cubes until dissolved. Simmer over low heat for 35 to 45 minutes, or until chicken is almost falling off of the bone.
  3. Remove the chicken pieces from the pot and set aside. Stir the sour cream into the broth. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Serve chicken with sauce over rice or noodles.

3 stars because the original is way too high in calories, fats and sodium. I made major changes to ingredients cutting way back on butter----1-T for flavor, a little canola oil and spraying the nonstick pot with PAM. Threw in a package of sliced baby bella mushrooms & a diced onion first, cooked them a til onion was transparent then removed added a little more oil and browned the chicken a little. Used skinless chicken thighs(more flavor) and breast strips. Returned the onion mushroom mix to pot, added seasonings--salt, pepper, poultry seasoning(all to taste)& 3 cans of low sodium chicken stock and simmered until meat was tender. Used 8 oz. each of low fat & fat free sour cream. If it needs thickening add a little corn starch and water before adding sour cream. Served over instant brown rice(I added a little onion powder to it) and tossed some chopped green onions on top. A bit more work but I'm suppose to be on a low sodium, low fat, low everything, if it tastes good spit it out, diet.


my daughter made this for dinner and it turned out great. she used boneless/skinless breast, accidentaly took out wrong package , so she cubed it and followed rest of recipe to a T.


Great simple dish with a lot of flexibility. Great to use as a base. I followed the recipe but added onions and carrots. My husband and sons loved it and I will make it again
