I've been asked for many years now if I had my grandmother's original recipe for my "World Famous Sour Cream Chicken", and I'm happy to provide it to all my fans. I hope you like it as much as my version.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut chicken breasts in half and wipe dry with a paper towel.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sour cream with lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, paprika, garlic, salt and pepper.
  3. Add the chicken to the sour cream mixture, coating each piece well.
  4. Cover in the refrigerator over night or at least one hour.
  5. Preheat over to 350°F.
  6. Remove chicken and roll in the bread crumbs.
  7. Arrange in a single layer in a shallow baking dish.
  8. Melt butter and shortening.
  9. Spoon half over the chicken.
  10. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
  11. Remove from over and spoon the rest of the butter mixture over the chicken.
  12. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until tender and brown.

This sounds better than the new version which I made tonight - and would have given 6 STARS if I could!!! Can't wait to try it. If it's as good as the 2nd version, we are in for a TREAT.

This was good, but had to be modified. The worcestshire alone provided adequate salt, so the kosher salt and celery salt had to be reduced to a 1/2 T each (I used more and ended up having to dilute with additional sour cream). I used all butter (Smart Balance actually) instead of half shortening and could have gotten away with less than a cup. I served it with rice to soak up the sauce, which was somewhat mild but still tasty in an old-fashioned comfort food kind of way.
