  1. This recipe looks SO yummy! I like how simple it is in regards to ingredients and instructions. 

    I like that you shared a hack to use frozen onions. This is a great tip as I do not always want to chop up a fresh onion. I plan on cutting up some onions and freezing them now.

    Can the leftovers be frozen?

    I plan on making this recipe this weekend and serve it over rice!

    1. Thank you for your kind comments!  In regard to freezing, sour cream doesn’t tend to freeze well.  It would still taste the same but the texture will suffer. 

  2. This looks a lot like my moms chicken and rice dish and I’ve been looking for years to find a way of making the sauce without all the chemicals, preservatives and salt that are in canned cream of whatever. This might just be the recipe I’ve been looking for to keep that southern taste without the guilt.
