Marinated Baked Chicken Breasts Recipe

To better control my food allergies, I do a lot of cooking from scratch. Good thing it's one of my favorite pastimes! This is a popular Sunday lunch at our house.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Bake: 1-1/2 hours YIELD:4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons celery salt, divided
  • 2 teaspoons paprika, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • 6 chicken breast halves
  • 3/4 cup crushed butter-flavored crackers
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted, divided

Directions

  • 1. In a large shallow bowl, combine sour cream, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, half of the celery salt and paprika, salt, and half of the pepper and garlic powder. Add chicken; turn to coat well. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Meanwhile, in a large bag or another bowl, combine crackers and remaining seasonings. Drain chicken, discarding marinade.
