Number of Servings: 4


    1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs - thinly sliced
    12 oz mushrooms, sliced (about 3.5 cups)
    1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
    1/4 cup chicken broth (low sodium)
    2 tbsp chopped fresh dill or 2 tsp dried
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp ground black pepper (or to taste)


Cut chicken in small bite-sized slices.
In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tsp of oil.
Add chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through. Remove chicken, cover to keep warm.
In the same skillet, heat the remaining oil, add mushrooms and onion.
Cook, stirring constantly, until tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, stir in sour cream, chicken broth and spices (to taste). Add reserved chicken, cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
Serve over whole wheat wide noodles or rice noodles.
Tip: You can omit the oil completely in this recipe by using cooking spray or lemon juice & broth (about 1 tbsp of each).
This reduces the amount of fat without sacrificing flavor!!

    Note to DIETINGAL. Yes, it appears she left Onions off the ingredients list, but I found something. If you click on "Ingredients Details" under the nutrition info, it lists the onions and calls for 1 cup. Just an fyi :0) - 5/5/09

    this was a very easy and nice treat for a left over chicken breast. I just started with 1/2 the mushrooms and onions (I guessed a small amount, the recipe doesn't state how much onion). After I added the sour cream and broth I put in my cooked, chopped chicken breast. It was still very good. - 1/25/09

  • Great recipe, used no oil and sautéed garlic, Chilli paste and ginger first before the chicken. Also used cottage cheese -low fat- blended with the stock before adding the vege. Also added celery and corn :) - 2/5/14

  • Yum!! I did not have dill on-hand so I used Italian seasoning. I also served it with baked potatoes and brussel sprouts. - 1/7/12

  • There is no mention of onions in the ingredients list, not that I care I hate em anyway but it should be there if its in the directions :) - 7/6/11

    1 cup of onions...and I never use the extra salt...I like everything without added salt...glad you like the recipe!

  • Very good recipe though I had to doctor up the spices a bit. I added 1 tsp no salt seasoning and 1 tsp more garlic powder. The dill makes this dish, if you don't have fresh use dried. As another reviewer mentioned the amount of chopped onion is 1 cup. Very good will make again. - 6/28/11

  • Yummy. Added a little more chicken broth when sauteeing the chicken and did the same when sauteeing the onion (which I put in first) and then added the mushrooms. Left out extra salt and didn't use the chicken broth forthe sauce. Would add more dill (dried) and granulated garlic next time. - 2/18/11

  • This sounds perfect for dinner tonight! I bought a rotisserie chicken from the store last night and was going to debone and freeze, and use the bones to make homemade chicken broth, this sounds like just the recipe to get me started!! TY!! - 2/16/11

  • This was so easy and delicious! I am a beginning cook and it posed no problems for me. Even my toddler ate seconds! It was still delicious as leftovers in my lunchbox at work. - 1/26/11

  • I just recently started cooking more than frozen dinners and this was easy and tasted delicious. I cook for just myself...so it lasted all week and I served it over whole wheat egg noodles...it was great!! - 1/18/11

  • Made it tonight. Quick once I had cut up chicken, onion & mushrooms. Very tasty, tho hubby wished it had more sour cream taste. I used Daisy low-fat sour cream, usually great, but might have let it simmer too long at the end. Served w/baked potato & brussells sprouts. - 1/3/11

  • The flavor was excellent and my kids actually ate it!! :)

    I did cut the dill in half and added garlic powder when cooking the chicken.

    A question for more experienced cooks than I am... is there a way to thicken the sauce without comprimising flavor? Corn starch?? - 7/26/10

  • loved it! just don't forget that the chicken broth already has salt so perhaps you don't need to put more salt on top of that. anyway it was very yummy! thanks - 5/9/09

  • We loved this! I embellished a little with my spices while I was cooking the chicken adding in some chopped fresh garlic and some poultry seasonings. I also used about 3/4 cup chopped onion (guessed since the recipe omitted the amount) I think it was a good amount. - 3/12/09

  • We really enjoyed this. I only put 1/2 of the dill, thought it would be overwhelming with the entire amount. My kids enjoyed a different way to each chicken and my teenager had seconds. Will definitely have it again. - 3/5/09

  • ooops.. I don't see the onions in the ingredient list, but they are noted in the directions.... How many onions are suggested and chopped or sliced? thanks! - 3/3/09
