Hungarian Chicken - Recipes

I have always wanted to try and make Hungarian Chicken but never came across a recipe that really interested me.

Finally, I found one and gave it a go.

Easy to create and had wonderful flavor.

Dh was quite happy with this dinner and the kiddos were looking for more.

I know that this recipe will become a staple in our house.

I'm happy that I finally took the plunge who knew this chicken would be so tasty. :)

Used tomato soup due to no tomato juice in the house.

Subbed in chicken breasts instead of a broiler chicken.

* I use no sodium chicken broth to cut down on the salt.

* You can use a bit more butter if you would like.

I cut the chicken breasts in half and served them since they were quite large.

Recipe was served with No Yolk noodles and used the sauce to cover noodles.
