Sour Cream Chicken

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

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.

  1. I would love to use this recipe but I don't have the croutons, so I'll use rizt cracker crumbs. Thank you for a starter dish.

  2. 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!

  3. Sounds yummy.. I will try this as soon as I get a new oven… mine is broken. 🙁 getting a little tired of microwave cooking.
