Sour Cream Chicken


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
(Printable Recipe)

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.

  7. I just popped this in the oven (1/3/12). I used a can of white meat chicken, sour cream, seasonings. I didn't have croutons, but had a box of stove top stuffing mix that I used instead. I'm serving it with roasted yellow squash and green salad. Yummy!
