This is my families  favourite for sure!!!
This recipe is a result of perusing many cook books.  After many experiments over the years I finally  put together the right ingredients for success!  Enjoy!!!

Ingredients: 

2 - 4 boneless skinless cubed chicken breasts
1 medium chopped onion
1/4 cup of butter
2 tbsp. light olive oil
1/4 cup of all purpose flour
2 -3 cups of grated MEDIUM cheddar cheese  
1 can of chicken broth (10 ounces)
1 cup of 18% cream {you may substitute with milk}
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms {optional}
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 – 1  package of medium egg noodles 

Directions: 

Brown cubed chicken over medium 
heat in oil until no longer pink.
Add butter and onions, continue 
heat until onions are slightly caramelized.
Add flour and whisk in broth and cream until all smooth.
Fold in sour cream, cheeses, salt and pepper.
 Add more broth or milk if too thick.
Simmer on medium to hot,  just bubbly {stirring often}
...NEVER BOIL!  
Add mushrooms now if desired.
* Turn down to a low and simmer slow for 30  minutes.

Serve with tender crisp steamed  asparagus or broccoli
and fresh grape tomatoes sliced in half.
