  • 24 ounces chicken filets
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prep baking sheet by lining with parchment paper to greasing with olive oil. 
  • Place chicken filets on prepped baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Add a heaping tablespoon to each of the 4 filets and spread evenly. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, add Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt and pepper and toss to combine. Divide mixture evenly on each filet. Spread mixture and press into the sour cream to help it stick.
