Sour Cream Chicken

panko parmesan chicken recipeI am late to the party for so many things. I have recently discovered Game of Thrones. I am officially hooked and incapable of doing much else until I finish one more episode of Season 1 and finish all of Season 2. I even went so far as to bring my iPad to the gym today and watched an episode while I ran on the treadmill. I will say that it may have been helpful because I kept running long after my distance was covered, I didn’t want to just stand there on a treadmill and not move. But I couldn’t leave without knowing how the episode ended. Maybe I am on to something. Hmmm…

I found a recipe similar to this one on from The Enchanted Cook ( I am sure that you have seen it floating around Pinterest), but I do not eat mayo, so I made mine with sour cream and added fresh herbs, garlic, and lemon zest. I have made this chicken so many times in the last few months. It is ridiculously easy, and while not the most attractive thing that I make, it tastes amazing. Everyone at my table loves this chicken recipe and it is a keeper. You do not need anything more than a side of veggies or a simple salad.

    Such a great recipe for those busy days, Bree! Gorgeous!

    thank you Robyn, I have been making this a lot lately for that reason exactly!

    I love making chicken this way. On the rare occasion I have TollHouse crackers in my pantry, I’ll use them rather than panko and that buttery taste really makes it taste so good!

    Yum! What is a tollhouse cracker? Like a Ritz? That would be so good. So would a Saltine come to think of it… thanks for the good idea.

    Townhouse, my Siri must recognize that I type Tollhouse more often ๐Ÿ™‚ I use Ritz a lot for the butteriness, but find the Townhouse has the right salt/butter combo.

    Ha! That is funny. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have not had this in years. My stepmother use to make something very similar but she used a packet of dry Italian salad dressing, and it came out a bit saucy. It was fantastic. I like how your recipe has a golden crust on top. I am going to have to make this!!

    Her version sounds delicious! I have been making this a lot lately because it is so easy. You can change it up a million ways too.

    I have made this same recipe with fish and substituted the mayo/sour cream with Greek yogurt. Really good.

  10. bakedbree

    February 13th, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    that is a great idea to use fish, especially with Lent starting today.

    Can you put in crockpot?

  12. bakedbree

    February 13th, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    I don’t think so. Sour cream will curdle.

    My husband recently came home from a meeting with our dairy company manager with a CARTON of cartons of garlic sour cream!! (an embarrasment of riches!) so Im scouring the net for recipes that use savory sour cream – this sounds delicious. Cant wait to give it a try using thighs (cos thats whats in the freezer ;-))

    A good problem to have. Try my ranch dressing recipe too. Garlic sour cream would work really well.

    Just made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious!

    I’m so glad you liked it. This is a staple here, I make it all the time.

    I used the sour cream w/ chives (premixed) and chopped garlic for those garlic lovers and found it to compliment the chicken even more especially with children that are super picky about their chicken and i was their hero. Thanks for the info

    This recipe is so versatile you can make it a million different ways.

    This recipe sounds amazing, I can’t wait to try it! Do you think regular bread crumbs could sub in for the Panko, with similarly tasty results?

  20. bakedbree

    March 5th, 2015 at 4:42 pm

    I think that it will be fine. I prefer panko because it has more crunch. And it is an ingredient tend to hoard.

    is there a grain free alternative to panko? this sounds like something my kids would love.

    I’m not sure, but maybe almond meal?

    Bree! I absolutely loved this recipe. I was searching around on your blog for a quick weeknight dinner for me and my boyfriend and this will definitely find its way into my weekly rotation of meals. It was so quick to put together and I served it with a side salad for a perfect supper!
    I used fresh home grown garlic and it was delish! Thanks again for sharing this awesome recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am so glad! This recipe is a winner. So easy and really adaptable. Glad that you liked it so much. And I am jealous of your home grown garlic!

    This recipe is awesome. I didn’t have panko, so I used crushed butter crackers (similar to Ritz) like mentioned in the comments and it was great. Thank you so much for a quick, easy, and delicious dinner tonight! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You are welcome. I love this easy recipe. I change up the spices and make it all the time.

    Do you think shredded mozzarella would be good on top?

  28. bakedbree

    September 25th, 2016 at 12:29 pm

    I 100% do.

  29. Zoe

    i didnt read it very well, and i added the cheese INTO the sour cream mixture, instead of sprinkling it on top.. i await the results

  30. bakedbree

    March 28th, 2018 at 12:47 pm

    I’m sure that it will be just fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Is it dry? I normally like a little sauce/juice. Otherwise it sounds amazing.

  32. bakedbree

    July 26th, 2018 at 5:29 pm

    There isn’t really a sauce, but it us not dry at all.

    Loved this recipe! I I used mozzarella cheese on top and grated Parmesan it tasted devine. Although I did not have Panko bread crumbs I used regular bread crumbs, still came out delish! Even my boyfriend who doesnโ€™t eat sour cream like this ๐Ÿคซ

    I’m so glad! I make this and variations of it all the time.
