Chicken in Sour Cream Sauce

This is an easy "take it to a pot luck supper" offering.



  • 2 pounds chicken, cut into serving sizes pieces
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 lb butter
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 lb.sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 leak
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika

In a plastic bag, combine flour, salt and pepper. Toss chicken pieces with flour mixture.

Heat butter and olive oil in a skillet; brown chicken on all sides; add leaks and mushrooms and continue cooking until mushrooms have absorbed oil and then released it. Do not caramelize (brown) vegetables.

In a separate bowl, mix sour cream, broth, and egg until smooth.  Add to chicken, and bring to a boil.  Transfer mixture to a casserole dish. Bake uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes, or until chicken is tender.

Serve over rice or noodles.  Preparation Time: 1 hour.  Serves 4-6.
