sour cream & chive chicken


This dish is beyond simple to make and it came out sooo delicious.  The sour cream locks in the moistness of the chicken.


  • 1.3 lbs chicken breasts
  • 1 tbs fresh chives, fine chop
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


Preheat oven to 350 F.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Slice your chicken breasts lengthwise in half… so you get thinner cutlets.

In a deep dish, mix the chives, cheese, flakes, salt and sour cream.  Using a brush (or just dredging the breasts) spread the sour cream mixture all over each cutlet (front and back).

Bake for 25-35 minutes (time varying with thickness of cutlets).

Yields 4 servings.

  2. You can sub in greek yogurt for the sour cream.
  3. I added some extra cheese, chives, flakes and parsley, when I took them out of the oven – for photography/aesthetic purposes.
