Sour Cream and Onion Chicken

There was a point in time when we thought that nothing could get better than the taste of a sour cream and onion dip. That was until we crushed up the flavorful chips, breaded a chicken breast with them, and fried it. 

Ingredients

  • chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2  Cup  all-purpose flour
  • eggs, beaten
  • 2  Cups  crushed sour cream and onion chips
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Canola oil, for frying

Directions

Place each of the 4 chicken breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and lightly pound with a meat mallet to thin each of them out. Season the breasts with salt and pepper to taste. 

Place the flour, eggs, and crushed chips in 3 separate bowls or shallow dishes. First dredge each of the chicken breasts in the flour, then the eggs, and then the chips.

Fill a large skillet with about 2 inches of the canola oil and heat to 350 degrees. Fry the chicken breasts on low to medium-low heat until golden brown on the outside and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes per side.

Sour Cream Shopping Tip

Buy cultured dairy products like yogurt, sour cream, and buttermilk; these contain live, active bacteria (the friendly kind) that have been shown to ease certain digestive problems.

Sour Cream Cooking Tip

Products like buttermilk and yogurt make for flavorful marinades that tenderize – use yogurt marinades for lamb or try soaking chicken or fish fillets in buttermilk before frying.
