I found this recipe in the box of recipes from my parents, but I don’t remember my mom ever making it for us. The combination of flavors intrigued me, (not to mention easy preparation) so I thought I’d try it. You have to think ahead since you let the chicken sit in the sour cream mixture overnight. As the chicken infused in the savory blend, the anticipation of dinner was heightened with every visit to the refrigerator during the day. It got even better as it baked in the oven filling the house with a wonderful aroma.
- 1 garlic clove – smashed
- 1 ½ cups sour cream
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 4 chicken breasts (I used boneless/skinless)
- 1 cup cereal crumbs
- ½ cup melted butter
Thoroughly mix garlic with sour cream, lemon juice, seasoned salt and paprika in a greased 9×13 inch baking dish.
Add chicken and coat thoroughly.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Place cereal crumbs in shallow dish. Remove chicken from cream trying to keep as much of the coating on as possible.
Gently roll chicken in cereal crumbs and place in a greased baking dish.
Pour melted butter evenly over chicken
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until golden brown.
