"Douglas embraced his Jewish heritage in his later years, after a near-fatal helicopter crash at the age of 74. This traditional recipe reflects his heritage. He used a cut-up chicken, but I used thighs and breasts. Add more sour cream, if needed."

I browned this in a couple batches in the pot. Then i put it all back in and finished it. It was easy. It is good. My personal preference is that it needs more salt and pepper. That's easy enough to add on top of your plate, though. I used thighs and legs for the dark meat and two breasts. I made this for Food, Friends and Fun.
