MIYM Chicken

MIYM Chicken is a family favorite! It’s my version of the classic Melt in Your Mouth Chicken recipe that your mom probably used to make! Simple, flavorful, and so tender…this is a great weeknight dinner recipe.

I seriously can never have too many chicken recipes. We eat more chicken in our house than any other meat for sure, like my Balsamic Chicken, my Cheesy Artichoke Chicken, my Crescent Chicken…the list goes on and on. And real talk, chicken nuggets are basically the perfect food…soooo…

This MIYM Chicken recipe is one of those classics that I am sure you’ve had at some point in your life. My mom used to make it with mayonnaise and while that was fine, I always thought she may have used a little too much. There is a fine line with mayo in my opinion…a little = good…too much = gross.

Just me?

MY OTHER RECIPES

Anyhow, to sideline that whole debate, I use sour cream in my recipe, which makes everyone happy.

Plus, there’s cheese involved in this one, and everyone knows with cheese…too much = perfect.

The prep time on this is literally minutes. It’s the perfect weeknight dinner, because everyone will love it, and it’s done in 30 minutes.

I love serving this with my Homemade Egg Noodles when I have the time to make them. SO good!

MIYM Chicken

Just place your chicken breasts in a 9×13 baking dish…

And mix up some sour cream, seasonings, and cheese.

Spread that on top and you probably want to add more cheese.

Bake it for 25-ish minutes, and then pop it under the broiler to brown up the cheese on top.

This will be a weeknight staple in your house, I guarantee it!

      I’d like to know this as well! I sub plain greek yogurt for sour cream a lot on Mexican dishes so I would think it would work well here.

    Hello! 🙂 I was just wondering were you get your chicken breast? In the pictures the chicken breast look smaller than normal.

    Amazing – and amazingly easy. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts because I like them better.

    Hi, did you reply to the person asking about subbing the sour cream for green yogurt? This might be a healthier option. I apologize if you did…I’m not seeing a reply.

    I made this tonight and loved the flavor! I’d suggest slicing the chicken horizontally to get thinner pieces. I had thicker pieces of chicken and they were tougher and took longer to bake. I’ll definitely be making this again!
