1 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1 1/2 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. sage
1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
3 cups fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
At least 4 hours before baking, combine sour cream and lemon juice in a small bowl. Place chicken breasts in a shallow bowl and pour mixture over chicken. Cover and refrigerate.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Combine salt, seasoned salt, paprika, sage, garlic salt, and black pepper in a medium bowl. Mix in bread crumbs. Dip chicken breasts in crumb mixture to coat all sides. Arrange in baking pan. Drizzle melted butter over top. Cover with foil and bake for 2 hours. Remove foil and bake an additional 30 minutes to brown. Makes 8 servings.
NOTES: Recipe from the Lion House Christmas cook book. I didn't follow the instructions very closely when I made this last week. I didn't marinate the chicken for 4 hours, I used crushed saltine crackers instead of bread crumbs, I made a smaller amount of chicken and guessed on the proportions of ingredients, I didn't have sage, and I baked it for a shorter time at a higher temperature covered with a glass lid instead of foil. I still enjoyed the flavor, but I think following the directions would probably make it much more "savory."
