This is a quick chicken that you can get together in a short amount of time. It also has very few ingredients. It is very moist thanks to the sour cream. Using chicken thighs also helped give this recipe more flavor. I liked using the Ritz Crackers for the coating, it gave the chicken a nice crunch on the outside. This chicken is also baked and not fried.
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken thighs
2 Tablespoons light olive oil
1 1/2 cups light sour cream or plain yogurt
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 cups crushed ritz crackers (1 sleeve) or seasoned breadcrumbs
2 Tablespoons melted butter
Preheat the oven to 350’F. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with foil and spread the olive oil over the foil.
In a medium bowl or zip style bag, stir together the sour cream, salt, onion powder, and paprika. Add the chicken to this mixture and turn the chicken so that all sides are fully coated.
Place the crushed crackers or breadcrumbs in a large bowl and dredge each piece of chicken in the crumbs so that all sides are coated.
Place the coated chicken on the prepared pan, drizzle the top of each piece with melted butter.
Bake at 350’F for about 45 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165’F.
The first thing you want to do is to put your sour cream, salt, onion powder, & paprika in a medium-sized bowl.

You want to dip your chicken in the sour cream mixture. Make sure you coat the chicken well.

Pour the melted butter over the top of the chicken and place in a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for about 45 minutes.

I served my chicken with some steamed, garlic, Parmesan cheese green beans. I really enjoyed how light this chicken was. I was surprised how much flavor this had!!!
