This is a great recipe for anytime-but it’s especially great for those of us who like to cook several meals on the weekend in preparation for a busy week. You can make this half way and then thaw and finish mid week… it’s great.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup vodka
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 ½ cups sour cream
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, and cook until browned on both sides and no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes; place into a 9x13 inch baking dish and set aside.
  2. 2 Reduce the heat to medium, and melt the remaining butter in the pan. Stir in the garlic, and onion, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly until the onion has begun to soften. Stir in the flour, and continue cooking 5 minutes more. Add the vodka, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Allow to simmer for 2 minutes, then stir in the tomato paste, chicken broth, salt, pepper, parsley, sour cream, and feta cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 to 30 minutes stirring frequently.
  3. 3 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. 4 Pour the hot sauce over the chicken breasts, and bake in preheated oven until the top has browned, about 20 minutes.

  1. I made this as written except that I doubled the sauce portion as others had suggested. I also used goat cheese instead of feta for personal preferences. I made whole wheat penne pasta and added it to the casserole dish for serving. What a combnation!! This chicken and sauce are so tender and flavorful. This - Read more ...
  2. This was delicious! I was about a quarter cup short on sour cream and doubled the garlic (because I always do) but otherwise followed the recipe. Made double the sauce and poured the extra over some gnocchi. Also used some of the extra sauce as 'gravy' over some egg foo young. This would make a - Read more ...
  3. Tried this recipe tonight. Just thought it was okay. The flavor was good but definitely not a "must have" in the recipe box. We won't be making this again but worth trying.
  4. this dinner was ok. i made it exactly like the recipe except i added canned mushrooms. i think it had way to much sour cream. so if i make it again i would probably use only 1 cup. you couldn't taste the vodka so i will leave that out too. if serving over something definitely - Read more ...
  5. First it takes an exceptional recipe for me to rate it a 5. My judging criteria: "normal" ingredients ease pf prep and cooking of the recipe and of course if the whole family loves the outcome. This recipe blew away all the criteria! Easy to make with only having to buy a few ingredients and - Read more ...
  6. I really want to give this recipe a 3, but my guys loved it so I'm compromising with them by giving 4 stars and whining a bit. As written, there are a couple of problems. First, if you brown your chicken breasts until they are 'no longer pink in the center,' they are DONE; any - Read more ...
  7. This chicken has a great sauce! I did add a little more vodka before simmering the sauce as mine was too thick. Also I doubled the garlic and replaced the dried parsley called for with fresh. We LOVED it!!! Definitely double the sauce if serving over so mething like pasta or rice. Will make again - Read more ...
  8. Yummy. I used more garlic and added a little cornstarch for thickening. I didn't have quite enough sour cream but the sauce turned out fine. Also made more sauce because we like it that way.
  9. I would give this more stars if possible! My husband and his friend loved this dish - especially the sauce. I only used 3 breasts and kept the rest of the recipe the same. We used the extra sauce over brown rice but it would do really well over pasta as well. The guys were - Read more ...
