Buy a 8 speed chain is what you need to do ;)

Its been yonks since Ive bought a chain, but years ago, if you were running shimano gears, you had to have a shimano chain etc etc.
Dunno if things still be the same now...

Any 8 speed chain will work on an 8 speed set up, same for 7, 9 and as far as i know 10 as well
kmc chains are normally recommended, pick one up for about 15 quid i think

Have you re indexed the gears?
did you adjust the length of the chain?
can't imagine it will feel worse for being narrower
