Sour Cream Chicken – chicken tenders topped with sour cream and crushed croutons – quick and delicious! Great weeknight meal! Ready in under 30 minutes!
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.
