My dear SIL over at Cooking With Anne runs a "Ready Set Cook" every month. The "game" is based on BBC's and Food Network's game show where two chefs would be given the three same ingredients. Each would have to come up with something spectacular and delicious with these ingredients in 30 minutes time. I used to love this show and cry when I think about it not being on anymore, boo hoo! This month the 3 ingredients were:
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 onion, chopped
1/2 pint sour cream
Lucky for me, these are ingredients I use almost daily in my home. The recipe below is a favorite for me, my husband and my children. I make it often, so next time I make it, I'll take a picture and post it! :D

Sour Cream Chicken & Mushrooms
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (sprinkle lightly with salt & pepper)
1 medium onion, thin slices
1 10 oz package cremini mushrooms, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbs rice flour (if you are not gluten-free you may use wheat flour for this step)
1/4 Cup GOOD white wine
1/2 pint sour cream
1 cup chicken broth
Freshly ground Pepper
2 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped
In a large skillet, coat pan with cooking spray and brown chicken on both sides, cooking until no longer pink in the center, but do not over cook. Set aside and cover with foil to keep warm.
In a mixing bowl, mix sour cream, chicken broth together until very smooth. Set aside until needed.
In the SAME skillet, add 2 Tbs olive oil, the mushrooms, onions and garlic. Saute over medium heat until onions and mushrooms are tender. Stir in the rice flour and cook until veggies are well coated and . Add wine and cook for one minute until wine gets warm and starts to thicken. Pour sour cream/broth mixture into pan and bring to a boil. Cook until thickened.
Add chicken back to pan, turn over so that both sides of the chicken get coated with the sauce. Reduce heat to a low simmer to allow chicken to finish cooking and sauce to continue to thicken.
Remove from heat and stir in the parsley JUST before serving.
Top with freshly shredded parmesan cheese to push this dish over the top! :D
Our favorite way to serve this is over brown rice with a side of steamed brocolli. (Oh...and yes, this only takes 30 minutes to cook. TAKE THAT Rachel Ray! LOL :D)
