Maria’s Swedish Chicken

via instagram

I mentioned this recipe in my previous post, and I decided to post the how-to. This recipe is not my own, it belongs to my dear friend Maria from Sweden. I met Maria through working close to each other, and we became good friends. She is now in Sweden, so I only see her maybe once a year and I miss her dearly! Before Maria left to go back to Sweden her first time, we made this recipe together. It was a little difficult to make because we had to convert the ingredients, but here is a basic recipe for this dish. I call it “Swedish Chicken.”

Coat an oven safe dish with pam and preheat your oven to 400. 

Place thin boneless skinless chicken breast in the dish. 

In a separate bowl add fresh thyme, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup heavy cream, a dash of olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Mix the sauce and pour over chicken in the dish. 

Sprinkle on shredded cheddar cheese and place a thyme twig on top to garnish 

Cook chicken for 20-25 minutes, or until it is no longer pink 

Let dish cool before serving 

I served it with homemade mash potatoes and broccoli

    This sounds absolutely freakin' delicious – I am a fan of chicken recipes (I find chicken feels lighter and easier to eat than other meats) and this sounds fantastic, thank you thank you for sharing!xo
