Melt in Your Mouth 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?

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!
