I would like to try this recipe but need to sub the heavy cream for something. I was thinking cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, yogurt or sour cream. What have you tried?

Best chicken recipe EVER!!! My family loves this recipe. We usually cook this about once a week. Sometimes if I run out of sun dried tomatoes, I just make the recipe as is but without those. This is SOOO yummy!

Great recipe! We like this and will make it again. Besides chicken breast, I have made this with boneless, skinless chicken thighs, and that is very good as well. I waited to rate this recipe until I made it as written. The first time I made it, the only change I made was that I used pork chops and it was worth it! Again, great recipe that's easy, quick and oh so good!

Made this last week - excellent! I didn't have the sun dried tomatoes so added fried mushrooms - a keeper for sure.

Made this with a few changes. Skipped the flour and salt. Sauteed the chicken in a little olive oil and butter. After deglazing the pan with wine, added half and half -not cold or it will curdle - a bit of chicken base, the sun dried tomatoes , basil and a half cup of Parmesan.

Made this tonight and we really liked it. Will definitely make again.

This sauce really elevates the chicken and asparagus as a veg side ensures it! There are several different kinds of sundried tomatoes available, so make sure you choose one you like. Some are soft in oil and others dried hard that need some simmering. Pepper really makes a cream sauce pop!

ummmmmmmmmmm yumyyyyyyyyyyy

My family loved this recipe. I added sliced fresh mushrooms and it was delicious.

This was a great chicken dish, even my husband liked it and he is not a chicken lover. Definitely will make again!!

I made this exactly as the recipe says. It was easily one of the best chicken recipes I have ever made. Even my 5 year old daughter loved it!

Thank you! Great to hear that the whole family loved it!

can I use half and half in place of heavy cream?

what can be used to subsitute the white wine?

Chicken stock or broth.

Chicken broth makes a great substitute. Enjoy!

sounds great! will fix over weekend. appears to be a dish I get at very good Italian restaurant in town, only with walnuts added.....

Since I have no in-laws and live alone, I made half the recipe and used chicken tenders instead of the breasts. Delicious!
