  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Rinse and trim the chicken breasts. Pat dry. Generously coat both sides of each breast with sour cream. Put crushed cornflake crumbs in a shallow plate or bowl and season to taste (I use onion salt and garlic salt). Dip the sour cream coated chicken in the seasoned cornflake crumbs.
  3. Place coated chicken in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with melted butter/margarine and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Wow! I'd give this recipe more than 5 stars if I could. I'm a vegetarian, so I've not tasted this myself, but my 2 1/2 year-old son who has never eaten more than a few bites of any chicken (incl...

I made this last night and it was so fantastic I'm going to make it regularly. The measurements seemed a little off, so I played that by ear. I just used enough sour cream to coat each piece a...

This was delicious! Very quick and easy to make. The chicken was real moist on the inside and nice & crunchy on the outside. I made one change by adding dry onion soup mix to the sour cream. ...

Excellent, NO modification necessary. In other words, THIS recipe, as it's written, is delicious. I didn't change anything. If I had, I wouldn't be reviewing THIS recipe, because had I chang...
