  • Makes: 4 servings
  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Bake: 8 mins 400°F


  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (11/4 to 11/2 pounds total)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
