This has been a favourite of mine for over 8 years when a lovely friend shared her version of this with me. A few tweaks later and this is a regular.

Don’t let the sour cream scare you. I hated sour cream before tasting this dish. You can switch it for the Philadelphia Cream for Cooking if you prefer that or Creme Friache. The flavour isn’t as nice but still tasty.

You can also bulk this up with veggies. Peas, corn and broccoli work well.

I also use the chicken mix in puff pastry and make into parcels. Everyone who I’ve made them for LOVES them. This is my signature dish.
