Sour Cream Chicken and GF Bread Crumbs

I seem to always be looking for another great recipe to go in my collection. I loooooove to try new things, but it is sometimes made difficult due to cooking GF. Sure, I could easily get my GF cookbooks down and make something that would taste okay. But we have young taste buds to deal with and (most of the time) they don't do funky foods. Unless, my mother makes it. But, that is another story entirely. So, normally, I convert what I THINK they would like into GF! It is easy to find new recipes to try (I may or may not be addicted to Pinterest). And when I stumbled across a Sour Cream Chicken recipe, I knew it was for me. :) The only problem was BREAD CRUMBS! AHHH!!

Now "bread" and "crumbs" are scary words in world of a Celiac patient. Normally, we RUN from them for a two reasons. Store bought crumbs are FULL of gluten, so nope! And gluten free bread is expensive. Who wants to grind up a $6 (6 inch) loaf of bread for crumbs?? Not this chick!! But I had been preparing for this day.

If you visited my freezer in the last few weeks, you would have noticed the bread grave yard. I have been saving the butts from every GF loaf of bread for about a month. It was starting to get ridiculous. We looked like we were hoarding the ends of the bread loafs. Cole tried to throw them once! Only once! :) I had a plan to carry out!!

Anyways, today I threw all of the odd pieces into the food processor and crumbled them up all nice and pretty. Once they stopped making a crazy noise, I melted about 1/2 a stick of butter and poured it in with the whirling crumbs. Along with the bread and butter went about a teaspoon kosher salt and a palm full of parsley. Once the crumbs looked like wet sand, I spread them on a baking sheet and put them under the broiler for about 5 minutes (stirring once half way through).

Bread crumbs, CHECK!!

Now the Sour Cream Chicken!

To make super easy cleanup, line a 13x9 pan with foil. You will love me for this tip later.

Place however many chicken breast you like in the pan. Sprinkle each with salt, pepper, and whatever seasoning you want (I used Mrs. Dash, because that is what I had).

Next, coat your chicken with a nice smear of sour cream. You will want to put some in a separate bowl! Don't cross contaminate your sour cream! And top with your homemade breadcrumbs.

Throw it in a 350 degree oven for 30 - 45 minutes. And voila! Supper!

Please let me know what you think about this recipe!! My little family loved it! I will be adding it to the rotation! Thank you Pinterest for the inspiration!

With love
