I really like Eva Longoria’s book, but I have to say this recipe didn’t grab me 100% it tasted like a stroganoff and really bland. As long as you add a bunch of Mrs. Dash, Cajun seasoning or something to it then it’s edible just not my favorite. Probably doesn’t help that we aren’t big stroganoff fans in our house.

3 tomatoes, chopped
1 pound egg noodles
1 to 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer until the chicken is tender, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes; the vegetables and chicken will have exuded their liquid to create a fragrant, bubbling stew.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the egg noodles and cook according to package directions. Drain thoroughly, return to the pot or a bowl, and toss with the butter. Put aside and keep warm.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the sour cream and flour until smooth (for a thicker stew, add more flour).
