Tried and True: Herbed Chicken Rosé

This recipe came from friends we met in the church we first attended after we got married.  It is easy, but it looks fancy, so it’s a great dish to serve for company.

I love that I usually have most of these ingredients in the house. I’m sure you could use fresh herbs, but it calls for dried, so that’s what I use because it’s so easy. It also doesn’t require that you pound or dredge your chicken or any of that nonsense.

The sauce is a simple mixture of sour cream and white wine. You can thicken it with cornstarch, if you have it. I like to serve this dish with a side of mashed potatoes and a salad.

  4. Sprinkle with herbs.
  5. Add wine around the chicken, without washing off the herbs. (Make sure to pour a glass for yourself!)

  7. Meanwhile, whisk the cornstarch and water together in a small bowl and set aside.
  8. When the chicken is cooked through, remove it to a serving plate and cover with foil.
  9. Thicken the pan juices with the cornstarch/water mixture.
  10. Stir in sour cream.
