How to make Smothered Sour Cream Chicken
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.
Step 2: Using a nonstick spray, grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Step 3: Place the sour cream, half cup of the Parmesan, salt, pepper, oregano, basil, garlic powder, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Mix well until blended.
Step 4: In a baking dish, arrange the chicken breasts and top with a mozzarella slice, then coat with the sour cream mixture.
