Chili Powder Chicken with Cilantro Cream

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Just Call Me Martha

Posted in response to a request for chicken appetizers. Very easy to make. The chicken has quite a bite which is tempered by the sour cream-cilantro dip.

I knew this would be hot and spicy. The poster said it in the intro and if you look at the ingredients you can tell by the amount of chili powder. I could just manage the heat and the sour cream was the right dip to go with this. The melted butter and the breadcrumbs result in a crunchy coating and leaving the chicken juicy. Next time I will use less chilipowder.
