How To Make miriam's chicken in white sauce

  • 1
    In a large pot, season chicken w/salt & garlic powder. Brown chicken w/skin on in butter & oil in med. - med. high heat 20-25 minutes. The skin protects the meat as you are browning it. You can remove it after you are done browning it.
  • 2
    Squeeze 1/2 a lemon (or pour 1 Tbs. of juice) on browned chicken. Add soup, sour cream and stir, (you can put 1/2 water or 1/2 milk instead of all sour cream if you like).
  • 3
    * Add 2 cups of water IF you are going to put rice in it, (I have also added a can of drained french style green beans at times).
