Ok folks, let's face it. Superbowl Sunday in the good ole U. S. of A. is NOT a low calorie day! Period...end of story. The following recipe was presented on WJZ-TV by Linda Harris -- co-host with Richard Sher on the People Are Talking show here in Baltimore, Maryland in the early 1980s. Richard Sher co-hosted People Are Talking with Oprah Winfrey in the late 1970s. Yep, that's right! Oprah used to be a talk show host in Baltimore before going to Chicago. She was replaced by Beverly Burke who was in turn replaced by Linda Harris -- and thank goodness because I've been making Linda's recipe now FOR 20 YEARS!!! It's too easy and too tasty. Oh...and what is it I always say? BUY A BAG A SALAD! Good eatin' and enjoy the game! Go back to the diet on Monday!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I use a package of chicken breasts that has about 4 large to 6 smaller breasts. We've done the recipe skin on and skin off -- we prefer skin on but now that we're older my husband has to watch cholesterol and fat so we do skin off.
  2. Dredge breasts in flour and place them in a greased baking dish.
  3. Melt 1 stick of butter in a sauce pan.
  4. Add to butter oregano, garlic powder, parsley, paprika and curry powder.
  5. Let simmer for a few minutes (the smell is AWESOME).
  6. Pour over chicken.
  7. Note! You can stop right here, pop the breasts in the oven and bake. it's just as good -- but if you're daring -- keep going!
  8. Cover breasts with table cream.
  9. Cover with almond slivers.
  10. Bake 45 minutes to an hour (until breasts are done).
  11. Pour the juice off into a bowl.
  12. Mix just enough sour cream into the juice to make a sauce.
  13. Pour this mixture back on top of the chicken.
  14. Sprinkle the whole thing with herbed croutons.
  15. Put back into oven for about 15 minutes.

By the time I finished reading this recipe I was drooling! Fantastic! WE were so happy to find this new way to prepare chicken. (Now if we could find a place in our area where we could listen to Big Band music), Chef, where do you go in your area in Maryland/Pennsylvania? I think it would be worth the trip! Thank you for all of the recipes you've posted. We have enjoyed each one.

When I think of superbowl food, I think of things you can eat with your hands - maybe it's just my mind set? I wouldn't suggest eating this with your hands but I would suggest trying this very delicious recipe! It is so easy to prepare and smells great while cooking. The flavor is fabulous and the looks make a nice presentation. I think I'd rename this: Company-worthy Chicken Supreme! Thanks for a great recipe!
