3 Ingredient Dinner: Sour Cream, Parmesan Cheese & Chicken Breast


Hello! I’m back with another 3 ingredient recipe and this one is a super duper easy for the most juicy chicken you’ll ever taste! All you need for this recipe is some chicken breast, sour cream & parmesan cheese (or shaky cheese as my daughter calls it!) :) I wasn’t sure I would like this recipe because I’m not a huge fan of sour cream OR Parmesan cheese. But all in all, it came out so tender and juicy that I didn’t even ‘taste’ the sour cream once it was cooked!



  • Chicken Breast
  • Sour Cream
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Preheat oven to 400


The first thing you want to do is set up your ‘dipping station’. I set up the plate of chicken, my sour cream, a plate with the parmesan cheese dumped onto it and lastly my glass baking dish.

I used a small spatula to lather the sour cream all over the chicken. Be careful not to overdo it unless you want to feel that tang in the back of your jaw when you bite into it! ;) Then dip the sour cream chicken into the Parmesan cheese and coat the entire chicken breast.

This is what your chicken should look like in the pan. Fully coated and covered with sour cream and parmesan cheese. Put it into the oven until the chicken is fully cooked thoroughly (25-30 minutes).

And this is what it looks like fully cooked. We served it with smashed potatoes & asparagus.

    is this freezer friendly? If so, can it be cooked in the crockpot or just baked after thawed?

    I’m always looking for new recipes and so glad you posted these 3 ingredient recipes. This chicken recipe looks yummy and of course easy to make. We eat a lot of chicken so this would be a change for the family. Thank you.

    Could I use non fat plain greek yogurt in place of sour cream?

    Did not like this the flavors clashed and I was left with globs of the mixture spread out on the chicken

    Thanks for the easy, yummy recipes. I’m not a mom but single and don’t like to go to too much fuss for a party of one!!

    Also, I’m so on-board with Lalarue. Did I spell that right? Thanks for the blog. Keep it up. I going searching the chicken over the mashed potatoes helped to mellow some of the mustard and the sour cream.
    Blessings to you both and thanks again.

      Niesamowite że z tak dużymi kamieniami sobie poradzi. No i do tego jest sprzęgło, które chroni przed usoazdzenikmi. U nas niestety jest sporo przeszkód w glebie i ludzie co byli na wycenie stwierdzili, że trzeba będzie ręcznie bo ich maszyna nie podoła.Ale z tego co widzę na filmie to i tak trzeba się trochę poruszać przy tej kopareczce, nie ma tak lekko Sierpień 8, 2011

    Thanks for bringing up this topic. I was looking for date information with this particular theme for a couple of days, I
    came across only http://www.rtjournal.org/study-abroad-packing-list/.
    I’m satisfied because I have reached the post. I like your writing style as well as the way you present and
    contend the important points. Yours is concise and
    short, although sometimes, there is a shortage of time and energy
    to read long bits, I spent only a few minutes to learn the article.

    It’s essential since no one has enough time to see.

    I love the simplicity of this recipe, however a few things I noted. The pictures do not work, also the instructions and ingredients are a bit vague. You say it serves 3, so I am assuming 3 chicken breasts, I am just going with my gut as to how much sour cream and parmesan to use. You says bake 25 – 30 mins, but how high should I set the oven?
