- Place the chicken in the hot pan and brown, (in multiple batches if necessary) about 2-5 minutes on each side. (Chicken does not have to cook all the way through).

NOTE: I accidentally read the original recipe incorrectly and added the pasta uncooked. So I added an additional 2 cups of homemade chicken broth and cooked the noodles about 5-7 minutes, covered until the noodles were cooked through. Then I added an additional one-third cup of sour cream. I garnished the entrée with additional thyme and paprika. I did not feel the entrée needed any additional seasoning.
NOTE: If you add the noodles into the sauce without pre-cooking them first, add an additional 2 cups of chicken broth and cook the noodles, covered with lid, an additional 5-7 minutes until noodles cook through.
