Step 3: In the prepared baking dish, arrange the chicken breasts and top the slices with a piece of mozzarella each, then coat with the sour cream mixture.
Step 4: On top, sprinkle the rest of the Parmesan.
Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about an hour or until the chicken is completely cooked and the sauce is bubbly.
