  4. Sounds yummmy—but I am not a big sour cream person, would you reccomend any subsitutions?

    Hmmm… Maybe plain yogurt? Or, try another “cream of” soup such as cream of mushroom, or simply add more cream of chicken.


  5. Often you can just omit sour cream, but this recipe has so much in comparison to the total “liquid” that I’d be hesitant to do that. Sarah’s suggestion of another can of soup sounds like a good compromise, especially the c/mushroom, which is more “liquid-y” than c/chicken. Yogurt might work, too.

    We’ll have to cut this in half for our family of two, though! But it sounds great and I plan to try it soon. Thanks for posting it.
