What You'll Need

  • 2 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons reduced fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon reduced fat cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 hard-boiled egg, chopped
  • 1 dill pickle, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

What to Do

  1. In a small saucepan, place chicken in enough water to cover; bring to a boil over high heat. Cook 10 to 15 minutes, or until no pink remains.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine sour cream, cream cheese, mustard, salt, and pepper; mix until smooth.
  3. Drain chicken, allow to cool slightly, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Add chicken and remaining ingredients to sour cream mixture; mix well. Cover and chill 1 hour before serving.


We like to serve each portion over a slice of light, whole wheat bread with lettuce and tomato!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Your recipe does not say what to do with the boiled egg, parsley and red pepper. I am guessing they are chopped finely and mixed into the bowl before the chicken.

Hi there! In step three you can find the instructions for this: Add chicken and remaining ingredients to sour cream mixture; mix well.Enjoy!

awesome!!!!! big words coming from someone who only enjoys peanut butter. will make this over and over for my husband

Again, it would be nice if the serving amount was given say half a cup or how many grams. Would make calculating the carbs easier than measuring the entire amount made and dividing by 4 for this recipe. I usually don't bother trying ones that tell me only "serves 4" or whatever. I can find others that tell exact serving size elsewhere on the internet.

Hi there! We are currently in the process of updating all of our recipes to reflect serving size. We thank you for your patience in this matter, and this recipe has since been updated to reflect that the serving size is 1/2 cup. Enjoy!

Easy to make it. Very delicious. I ate it with whole wheat tortilla instead.

BeckySue, I find you have a lot of good comments. How can I get in touch with you to talk about some recipes.

One tip is to thin the mayo before stirring in. The mayo is creamier and stays creamy and you use a lot less this way without sacrificing taste.
