Preparation time

  • Prep 20 m
  • Cook 25 m
  • Ready In 45 m


  • Breading:
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenders
  • 1 red onion, sliced, or more to taste
  • Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 2 tablespoons milk, or as needed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir bread crumbs, salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, onion powder, and paprika together in a shallow bowl. Pour melted butter into a separate bowl.
  3. Dip each chicken piece into melted butter, press into bread crumb mixture to coat, shaking off any excess. Place coated chicken pieces and onion in a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 20 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chick to a plate and pour any pan drippings into a saucepan.
  5. Place saucepan with pan drippings over medium-high heat and stir in flour. Add sour cream and black pepper, cook and stir until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in chives and enough milk to reach desired consistency. Top chicken and onions with sour cream mixture.
