This chicken was excellent. My family really enjoyed it. I didn't have any cereal to use for the coating so I used a combination of crushed crackers and homemade breadcrumbs. It turned out great. Next time I will add the full amount of garlic - I cut it a bit becuase it seemed like to much but it needed the garlic. I thinned the sour cream with a little milk which made it coat more evenly. I think the sour cream is the key to this chicken and that whatever breading and seasoning you prefer to use will be fine. I was amazed at how juicy the meat was and how crispy the outside got. The cooling rack idea worked so well. I would recommend skinning the chicken - I skinned a few pieces and then got lazy and left the rest on and I didn't think the skin added much (except fat.) I used various chicken parts and all came out great - I'm always on the look out for recipes that work well with the less expensive cuts of chicken and this was a winner. Read More

I followed this recipe exactly except for mixing the spices into the sour cream instead of the cornflakes. I did not care for it. I ended up drizzling it with oil and putting it under the broiler to try to get it to crisp with mild success. Still it had a bad flavor almost sweet. Read More

Awesome chicken recipe! I did take suggestions and altered it a bit: I mixed ALL of the seasonings (I used garlic powder salt cumin oregano and thyme) into the sour cream PLUS I added crushed French fried onions (the kind that usually goes on top of green bean casserole). I also added some more crushed french friend onions into the crushed cornflakes. And I used boneless chicken thighs. The chicken was moist and the coating was crispy. Easy recipe and will definitely make again! LEFT OVER NOTE.....With the left overs I put them in the oven at 400 topped with spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese and served over pasta. A great way to make 'chicken parm'. Family went nuts over it and didn't realize it was the chicken from 2 days before! Read More

Great recipe! The second time I made this I used skinless drumsticks lowfat sour cream and a seasoned bread crumb coating instead of corn flakes. This is about as low fat as I can or want to get when I cook! The family had no idea it was a "lower fat" fried chicken! Make sure you season the sour cream (salt soy sauce pepper herbs whatever you like). Using warming racks to cook the chicken on really helps too. Read More

Wow this was the best oven fried I've had! I did alter the recipe by thinning the sour cream with buttermilk and seasoning with the same spice as the coating. I used skinless breasts. What makes this recipe great is you get a thick and crunchy coating that TASTES fried! Thanks for sharing--this is how I'll do ckicken from now on! Read More

Delicious and less messy than regular fried chicken although a little heavy on the garlic. It helps tremendously to put the spices in the sour cream rather than the corn flakes since that way they kind of melt into the chicken while it cooks. Read More

This recipe was a hit!! However I used different spices. I used fat-free sour cream and seasoned it with seasonings like garlic powder salt pepper and Paprika. I didn't have any sage or Rosemary. I didn't have cornflakes so I used breadcrumbs and I seasoned them with Italian seasoning. I also didn't have any minced garlic. The sour cream covered the chicken very heavily and so this made the final result a nice thick coating. I did use the cooling rack and it worked out fine. No coating fell off during cooking. It was delicious! I can't believe it wasn't fried! My family will love to have this a part of their regular meals! Read More

Loved this recipe! I am not much of a meat eater but I went back for seconds. My husband approved. A great way to make faux fried chicken! I did add a little more salt pepper and garlic powder and I used homemade yogurt instead of sour cream. I'm going to use less rosemary next time though it was a little too much. Read More
