Chicken Breasts Baked In Sour Cream

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

There is always room in your recipe collection for another way to prepare a chicken breast. So here’s an easy, delicious and perhaps new way to make those chicken breasts exciting. This recipe takes a little longer to bake, but it is worth the wait.

    • 1/2 stick butter or margarine
    • 1 can (10-1/2 oz) cream of chicken soup, divided
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 4 ounce can sliced mushrooms, drained
    • 3 whole chicken breasts, cut in half
    • Brown chicken breasts in butter or margarine.
    • Place in baking dish with a cover.
    • Add 1/2 of the can of cream of chicken soup.
    • Bake at 350°, covered, for one hour.
    • Combine sour cream with remaining cream of chicken soup.
    • Add drained mushrooms.
    • Pour mixture over chicken.
    • Cover and continue baking at 325° for 25 minutes.

To start off, is the most tasking part of our mission here. Browning the chicken breasts in butter. Not so difficult. I decided not to cut the chicken breasts in half because all three were identically, cool shaped and fat. I just couldn’t. So they took a little longer to brown. (about 10 minutes on each side)

There’s not too many rules here. You could cut the chicken breasts into thirds or ooh pound them thin…stretch the chicken breasts any way you’d like depending on the number of people at the table.

Once browned, the chicken breasts went into a baking dish, and I spooned half of the cream of chicken soup over them, covered the dish and baked for an hour. After the hour, this is what they looked like…

Not that exciting yet? Here is where the goodness kicks in.

I mixed the remainder of the soup with sour cream and mushrooms.

Nope, it’s not dessert…

Spooned all that over the chicken breasts. It makes quite a heap.

Then covered the dish up and finished baking for 25 more minutes.

The outcome was spectacular.

I’d have to say the sauce was my favorite part, so don’t leave any in the pan! It was very rich, almost cream cheese-like, and the mushrooms rocked!

This picture doesn’t do these Chicken Breasts Baked in Sour Cream justice, so trust me and try the recipe for yourself. Yum!
