Herbed Chicken with Sour Cream-Wine Sauce

Is there a condiment you always have in your house? Besides ketchup and Ranch dressing, we always have sour cream. My husband loves to make a ranch sour cream type dip and always needs sour cream. If I need sour cream for a recipe, I will buy light since I know it will not be touched.
Remember, I'm trying to eat more vegetables for my New Years Resolution so I thought this would be a great recipe to try. My family and I liked it. I served it with a vegetable medley and pilaf rice. They did not even know it was from a healthy cookbook. The recipe has no salt in it and I didn't think it needed it.
Herbed Chicken with Sour Cream-Wine Sauce
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp ground pepper
4 boneless chicken breast
1/2 cup white wine (I used Schmitt Sohne Riesling)
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
2/3 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2 Tbsp all purpose flour
2 Tbsp water
3 Tbsp nonfat/light sour cream

  1. Mix the oregano, thyme, basil, and pepper. 
  2. Spray the chicken with a nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Sprinkle the herbs over the chicken.
  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  5. Add the chicken and cook the chicken for 2 minutes per a side or until browned.
  6. Add the wine and chicken broth to the skillet and cover. Reduce the heat and simmer the chicken for 20 minutes.
  7. Add the mushrooms and carrots. Simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
  8. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter and cover to keep warm.
  9. Add the flour and the water to the skillet. Whisk until thickened.
  10. Stir in the sour cream to skillet and cook for a few minutes. 
  11. Spoon the mixture over the chicken and serve.
