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 caramelize.
Add flour and whisk in broth and cream until all smooth.
Fold in sour cream, cheeses, salt and pepper.
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.
