I found this recipe on Pinterest - my favorite source of inspiration. This chicken is best described as a deconstructed chicken casserole. I actually thought this was easier and better than a regular chicken casserole. I used full fat sour cream, but I think light sour cream would be fine. I would stay away from fat free sour cream - I think you need some fat to flavor the chicken. I think our favorite part of the dish was the crunchy crouton topping - YUM! Give this a try the next time you need a super quick weeknight meal.
Sour Cream Chicken
- 2 pounds chicken tenders
- 1 1/2 cups of crushed Garlic Herb Croutons
- 1 cup sour cream (full fat)
- kosher salt
- freshly ground pepper
- garlic powder
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
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 that with the crushed croutons and then dot with the butter.
Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25-35 minutes.
