Sour Cream Chicken Bake

I always have chicken breasts on hand because of their versatility and affordability. Plus, it’s one of the only protein sources that my picky daughter will eat. It’s like a blank canvas just waiting for me to create something delicious to eat. 

With the chilly weather upon us, I want comfort food. Casseroles and bakes are on the menu quite a bit during the colder months in my home. I like them because they are easy to make and hard to mess up. They aren’t pretty to look at, but they taste yummy. I think that’s the most important thing anyways.

In this Sour Cream Chicken Bake, the chicken breasts are baked in a sour cream mushroom sauce. Serve it with some rice so you can sop up all that yummy sauce. 

If you want to make it lower carb, don’t dredge the chicken in the flour mixture.

How to Make Sour Cream Chicken Bake

This recipe is easy to prepare, but does need some extra time to bake to perfection in the oven.

Stir flour, paprika, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Roll the chicken breasts in the flour mixture and place in a 9×13 casserole dish.

In another bowl, mix together sour cream, cream of mushroom soup and mushrooms. I used canned mushrooms, but you could also try fresh, if you prefer. Pour the sauce over the chicken in the casserole dish.

Bake, uncovered, in a 350F oven for 1 hour 15 minutes.

Remove the casserole dish from the oven and sprinkle on shredded cheddar cheese. Place back in the oven until the cheese melts for about 5 minutes. 

Top with fresh chopped chives for garnish, if you like. Serve hot.
