Spice suggestion for sour cream based sauce?

I recently cooked a simple recipe with chicken in a sour cream and mushrooms sauce, seasoned with salt and pepper. I feel that it could use some spices the next time I would cook it, but am unsure what spices I could use. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.

I'd go along with that.

Tarragon and/or parsley would also be good.

It is such a personal thing, how can you suggest anything? I am with Andy on this one. A person should use spices that he/she likes. I for example like paprika; does everybody need to start using it? Of course not. The only way to know is by trail and error.

Come on, y'all! If you're just going to tell people to figure it out for themselves, what do we have this forum for? It's for helping others get ideas
