Baked Sour Cream Chicken


This is one of my new favorite chicken recipes. Chicken is definitely my family’s preferred meat; we eat it often, and I’m always looking for new ways to prepare it. I initially saw this recipe on Pinterest, and to say that I was all over it would be an understatement. I could not wait to try it.

I’m happy to report that, not surprisingly, it definitely didn’t disappoint. Chicken breasts are slathered with sour cream, then topped with a layer of breadcrumbs and a lot of butter. The sour cream keeps the chicken incredibly tangy and moist, and the layer of bread crumbs has a nice crunch. Highly caloric? Yes. Worth it? YES.

2 pounds chicken breasts
Salt
Black pepper
Garlic powder
1 cup (approximately) of full fat sour cream
1 1/2 cups seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lay the chicken close together on a foil lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Coat with a thick layer of sour cream. Top with breadcrumbs and dot with butter.

2. Bake for 35 minutes to an hour, depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts.
