These were so moist and delicious.  Really quick and easy.  (If you don’t marinate them very long.)

  • 4 to 6 boneless, skinless, chicken breast halves
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper , opt.

Rinse and dry chicken breasts with paper towels.  In a 2-qt. dish, combine sour cream, lemon juice, Warcestershire sauce, celery salt, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Add chicken to sour cream mixture, coating each piece well.  Let stand, covered, in refrigerator overnight, or at least 8 hours.  (I only marinated mine for 3 – 4 hours and it was still delicious.)

  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Carefully remove coated chicken from sour cream mixture.  Roll in crumbs, coating evenly.  Arrange single layer in an 8-inch square shallow baking dish.  Micromelt butter in a 1-cup measure on HIGH 1 minute and drizzle over chicken.  Microwave on HIGH 10 minutes or until chicken is tender.

Serves 4 to 6.
