“A recipe from my mother-in-law. Tasty and simple...just what I like! You can probably be fine using fat free sour cream, but I never do. This is for sure not a recipe for weight watchers, but I'm sure can be chiseled down some. What can I say, my husband was born and raised on a dairy, and we use real butter and all the other good stuff assoicated with cows...not fat free. (Except for the half and half which I buy for my tea...makes me feel a little bit better)”
1hr 5mins
4 chicken breasts
