Posh Chicken Breasts Supreme
This recipe has been adopted from food.com site.
I don’t know why it’s called Posh , maybe because you give it a special treatment by marinating the chicken overnight ( in my case it was 24 hrs).
Or maybe because the chicken comes out full of flavours, really fragrant and succulent. Delicious! Worth to try it. Also, I think, that you can cook some chicken one day and leave it marinated for another 24 hrs in the fridge. Just remember that the fridge temperature must be no higher than 4°C!
6 large chicken breasts
315 ml sour cream
40 ml lemon juice
3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3 teaspoons celery salt
2 teaspoons paprika
2⁄3 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
120 g breadcrumbs
In a bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, paprika, salt, pepper, and garlic and stir well.
Dip each uncooked chicken breast into the mixture and place in a shallow casserole dish, or deep tray. Divide and spoon any leftover mixture on top of the breasts. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
The next day an hour before cooking remove from the fridge and generously sprinkle a breadcrumbs on each breast. (More breadcrumbs can be used, if you want.).
Preheat oven to 190°C
Bake uncovered on the middle shelf for 45 minutes.
If the bread crumbs did not get golden colour, turn oven to 210°C , replace the chicken on a higher shelf and cook for a few minutes more.
Once the topping started changing the colour to golden brown, take chicken out , cover and let it stand for 10 – 15 minutes before serving.
You can serve it with juices from the tray where the chicken was cooked, or get juices out and make a gravy. Whatever you fancy .
