    The flavor of this dish has a lot of potential. To increase the layers of flavor I made some alterations. I sauteed the chicken with salt, pepper and added 3 cloves of garlic before adding baking. This step keeps the juices in the chicken which prevents the sauce from becoming watery, as this was a complaint of many others. I also increased the sour cream by 1/4 cup and flavors melded together. I have also considered adding sauteed creminis for more texture in the sauce.  -  08 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is one of the few recipes I've tried on AllRecipes that I didn't really tweak and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!  -  23 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was excellent! My husband and I aren't huge fans of swiss cheese, but I decided to give this a try anyway. I agree with other reviewers that the swiss/sherry combination is very nice. It tastes more sophisticated than your typical cream of mushroom recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. Cooking time was perfect. The chicken was moist and tender. Hubby and I both really liked this. Prep was nice and easy too. Next time, I may try bread crumbs in place of croutons.  -  11 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
