This chicken might possibly be the simplest thing I've ever made, but the short list of ingredients definitely doesn't mean it's short on flavor. I added a few herbs, but still think the parmesan could carry this dish on it's own if you didn't want to bother with them.
I also switched up the original recipe just a tad. The Enchanted Cook calls for the chicken to be smothered in mayo, but I didn't have any on hand so I used sour cream. I thought it turned out great and so did the hubby (or so he said)!
This dish is perfect for a rushed evening where you don't have much time to prep a meal and need something on the table quick. Not that I'm ever rushed or anything :)
Easy Parmesan and Sour Cream Chicken adapted from The Enchanted Cook
1/2 C sour cream
1/4 C parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
1/4 C bread crumbs
1 tsp dried parsley
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare baking pan by lightly greasing.
Combine parmesan and bread crumbs in medium bowl. Set aside.
Trim any extra fat from chicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Coat chicken with sour cream, then dip into parmesan, bread crumb and parsley mixture to coat.
In for a dip!
Place chicken into prepared pan and top with extra parmesan if desired. Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
My favorite part is when the parmesan begins to melt some and it browns just a bit. Yum!
Yep, that's it! It really is that easy. No joke. Not lying.
