4 servings


  • 4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • seasoning salt to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package Knorr Classics Vegetable Soup Mix
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill


  1. Rinse chicken, and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Sprinkle both sides of chicken breasts with seasoning salt and garlic powder.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and brown on both sides.
  4. Remove chicken from pan. Add water, soup mix, and dill to the pan. Stir to mix well. Return chicken to pan.
  5. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cover. Keep stirring every few minutes until the chicken is done. To test for doneness, make a small cut in one of the chicken pieces and see if the juices come out clear. If yes, then it is done.
  6. Remove the chicken from the pan and place it on a platter. Stir in the sour cream. Continue stirring until it is mixed well and the sauce has gotten hot again. Don't let it boil.
  7. You can either spoon the sauce over the chicken on the platter or serve it separately in a gravy boat and allow each person to add it to their own plate. The sauce is delicious served over rice, egg noodles, or mashed potatoes.
