Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 medium green onions, sliced (3 tablespoons)
  • Hot cooked rice

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken pieces with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper; add to skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden. Add butter, onion and garlic. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix sour cream, broth and cornstarch until smooth. Pour over chicken mixture. Reduce heat to low. Cook about 5 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center and sauce is thickened. Stir in half of the green onions.
  • 3
    Serve chicken and sauce over rice. Sprinkle with remaining green onions.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Add some veggies, such as 1 cup frozen peas or broccoli, to the skillet for the last 5 minutes or so of cooking time. Heat until vegetables are cooked.
  • tip 2
    There are so many great packaged rice mixes on the market these days. Try a rice pilaf or other rice mix seasoned with herbs. Start it when you start cooking the chicken dish, and both will be ready at the same time.
  • tip 3
    The chicken and sauce is also delicious served over pasta.
