It doesn’t get much easier than this to bake a chicken dish for dinner. On the day before serving, bring together the ingredients and let marinate in the refrigerator over-night, then pop it into the oven for dinner and serve it.
The savory sauce of paprika, sour cream, garlic, lemon juice, and seasonings blends into a tempting marinade for chicken breasts. Sour cream may not be what comes to mind as a marinade, but the slightly acidic characteristic of sour cream helps to tenderize the meat, while the thickness of it, holds the seasonings into place and bakes into a smooth sauce.
Serve this with buttered egg noodles or mashed potatoes ~ it’s the perfect tasty dinner at the end of a busy day!

As a side note: I’m that person who likes change now and then ~ like re-arranging the furniture ~ which compelled me to change this blog. In the process, it became totally “messed up.” Many of you said you could see nothing but the header. My “computer tech” and I worked on this to no avail, everything seemed fine on this end. In hopes of correcting whatever, I have now changed my blog back to the way it was originally, with the cherry header, and will leave it that way. As Bill has told me numerous times, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
