Sour Cream Chicken

This chicken with sour cream sauce doesn’t get any easier, it’s made with one dish and requires very little prep work. As a mom of three, I’m all about the simple family dinners. Weeknights are always a crazy time between all of the after school activities and the sports, so these casserole type dinners are always a win as most of the ingredients are dumped into one dish and baked for an hour. I can get a couple simple sides ready then help the kids with their homework because dinner is already cooking in the oven.

The simple sour cream sauce for chicken is made with a handful of common spices that you most likely already have in your spice cabinet. The sour cream mixture keeps the chicken moist while also adding flavor.

What can I make with chicken and sour cream?

There are a variety of recipes that you can make with baked chicken with sour cream. For instance, growing up my mother would always make Chicken Divan, which is a chicken casserole with broccoli, cream cheese, and cream of chicken soup. For an easy weeknight family dinner this past week I made Sour Cream Chicken, which is similar to the cream cheese chicken casserole that my mother used to make but I omitted the broccoli and cream of chicken soup.
