We really enjoyed this recipe and my husband thought it was a huge hit. However, I took away a point because I wasn't BLOWN away from the marinating. Because we make the sour cream chicken alot, it didn't seem like it tasted all that different from the one we make up right away and cook. Still, a very delicious recipe! Thanks so much for sharing!

This was indeed easy to make and the flavor was very good. I had made up the marinade and let the chicken set while I was at work and then popped them in the oven when I got home. I did end up overcooking the chicken though. They were probably done after the first 30 minutes. I would try this again for sure.

This was very simple to make, and I loved the thought of it marinating whilst we were out for the day! It had heaps of flavour, and is made with things we always have on hand. I subbed thighs for the breasts though as we prefer them.
