Recipe needed for chicken breasts that can be served over rice

I'm new here, so I'm hoping this is the correct place to post this. I am wanting to fix a creamy chicken dish to be served over rice for dinner tonight. I usually brown the chicken, then cook onions and garlic in the pan, then add the chicken back with sour cream, chicken bouillion, and paprika. It is ok, but lacks something. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix the chicken using sour cream that is more savory and yummy? Thanks!

This sounds great; and what is probably missing is in the quality of the paprika. You can buy hot, sweet or smoked. If you usually use sweet, amp it up by using hot or smoked (in combination with your sweet). Also, lots of fresh ground black pepper. A dab of tomato paste and/or red wine might also give some zip to it.

I would give double cream a go as opposed to sour cream and then add a little bit of reduced down white wine

I'm a big fan of this recipe, ranchwife.
Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta Recipe - Food.com - 39087

I add fresh crimini and usually go heavier on the sauce. I've served it over rice, too.

I make a simple sauce of sour cream and cream of mushroom soup and pour that over my chicken (it's really thick) and it makes a nice creamy sauce that's good over rice.

Since I live 20 miles from the grocery store, I'm stuck with the sour cream. I do believe I will try adding some reduced white wine.

In regards to the paprika, I usually do half regular paprika and half smoked.

Thanks for the ideas!

I think dried tarragon would be a good addition to this.

Ranch, my cooking heart goes out to you. I'm not quite as far away from a grocery store as you, but it is a very small town and has two stores. It works OK for us since it is a tourist town, and we even have a spice guy. That said, unlike some we can't just get out ten minutes before meal time and be sure we can find what we have a hankering for. So I try to keep a very full pantry.

Oh, it just occurred to me. Curry could be an alternative. Use the sour cream where you might use yogurt. Should work!

Whenever I find I've made something that needs something (except salt), usually a dash or two of oregano perks it right up, especially if I can let it sit in the fridge overnight.
