I first pinned this recipe a couple of weeks ago, because the pictures looked so delicious. It was originally called Oma’s Sour Cream Chicken and posted over at the Making Life Delicious Blog. As usual, when the time came to make this yummy main dish, I adapted the recipe, somewhat, for our own family’s tastes and my pantry. Essentially, though, I think I did a fair job of sticking to the basic premise of the recipe.
Well, it is SOOOO incredibly delicious that we ate every bite before I remembered that I hadn’t taken a pretty picture of it, served up on the plate, for you. I would promise to take a good one and update this post for you next time I make it, but that ship has sailed, my friend. We made it again, about a week later, and I forgot, again. Oy! So, I will try to remember to make a gorgeous plate and photograph it for you, when we serve this again, and we WILL be serving this, again. Seriously, it’s better than any chicken I have ever eaten in a restaurant. Making it for guests will make you famous and no one will ever have to know how easy it is. Five ingredients — it doesn’t get simpler.
Note: I have a new tip for prepping your chicken breasts — to use in any recipe, really. You can pound your chicken breasts out to make them all an even thickness, however, I have recently taken to slicing mine in half horizontally, resulting in two chicken breasts “tricking” the eye into seeing two pieces of meat, the same size as the original. They are just thinner. Oddly enough, if it looks the same size, somehow your eyes tell your stomach you are just as satisfied and you stretch your grocery budget in a significant way.
- 5 lbs chicken breasts, sliced in half horizontally or pounded thin (about ⅜")
- 3 - 4 Tablespoons Spike Seasoning
- 2 cups sour cream
- 1 (8 oz) pkg. Italian Panko Bread Crumbs
- ½ cup butter (one stick)
- Place the chicken breasts on ungreased baking sheets.
- Sprinkle each piece liberally with Spike Seasoning.
- Spread sour cream over each seasoned chicken breast.
- Sprinkle with Italian Panko Bread Crumbs.
- Cut stick of butter into small cubes and dot over chicken breasts.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes until chicken is done and crumbs are nicely browned.
