DELICIOUS!!!! I had to make a few changes but it still came out wonderful. I used Italian breadcrumbs instead of stuffing, light/reduced fat sour cream, garlic powder instead of salt. I ommitted the butter and sprayed tops of chicken, once breaded, with butter flavored Pam cooking spray. I broiled the dish the last few minutes of baking to give it a golden brown color. The changes definately cut down on the fat and makes for a healthier dish. WOW, it was so so good. The kids asked for seconds!! They asked for me to make this every night!! Thanks for the great recipe.


OMG This is delish! I've been making this for about 3 months now so I could check out some variations. I will only use Stove Top Chicken Flavor cause that turns out the best every time (dumped the package in a large ziploc and roll over with a rolling pin a few times, gives it just enough crush to cover chicken but still crunch!). There's something about the lemon juice, soy sauce & sour cream combo that seems perfect. I mix it up in a bowl and let the chicken sit in it for about 5 min. Is it possible that this tenderizes the meat some? Dunno, but its moist and tasty every time! I use garlic powder & celery salt, which seems to work for us without being too salty. The melted butter on top is essential as I found out. Hubby LOVES this & so does everyone I make it for. Serve with something green & cranberry sauce and it feels like a holiday! Too good for words. Thanks so much!


Wow, too much salt!!! 57% of the daily allowance is entirely too much for just one dish. The salty taste drowns out other more desireable flavors. Use celery seed, instead of celery salt, garlic powder instead of garlic salt and eliminate the soy sauce. There is plenty to salt in the stuffing mix and sour cream to accomadate the dish.
