Sour Creamy Chicken
Happy Friday! I'm excited that this weekend marks daylight savings time. I could use that extra hour of sleep for sure :) Though I have to say that I am bummed, though its my fault, because I wanted to take a cute family photo at the Pumpkin Patch but we ran out of time and did not get to do it! Darn! Well- hopefully there will be one that is open till a later date or maybe Ill just wait another year.
I wanted to load up on candy that was marked down after Halloween. But apparently everyone thinks that way, so (1) all the candy is gone by the morning after Halloween and (2) the grocery stores do not even discount the candy by that much. Plan foiled- though the hubby did get me some, because I found a lot of candy based cupcakes and cookies- and I am thinking a cute little series for this blog (but do not hold me to it because I am not for certain about this).
Even though I had some time today- the hubby really wanted to make this particular chicken which was inspired by a recipe on my Pinterest board- a quick and easy recipe to throw together (which is always a plus, though I wish I saved it for one of those days which I was super busy). I decided to pair it with a recipe for avocado cilantro lime rice and some veggies. It was yummy!
SOUR CREAMY CHICKEN
Preheat Oven to 350F degrees
5 chicken breasts sliced in half
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. mayo
1/2 c. shredded cheese + 1/2 c. for garnish
1 tbsp. onion powder
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1 c. panko crumbs
Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. Lay chicken cutlets in baking pan. In a small bowl combine sour cream, mayo, shredded cheese, onion powder and garlic. Evenly distribute the sour cream spread onto each chicken cutlets. Bake 30-40 minutes until breasts are no longer pink in the middle. Remove from oven and sprinkle additional cheese on top of each breasts. Wait 1-2 minutes until cheese has melted. Then sprinkle about 1-2 tbsp. of panko crumbs on top of each cutlet. Place under broiler for an additional 4-5 minutes, until top is golden brown.
Pair this with Avocado Cilantro Lime Rice!
