So you might not be able to *see* the sour cream, but you'll definitely benefit from it! It's acting like a seasoned “glue” for the coating, which is made from pork rind crumbs! I'm a huge fan of these Seasoned Pork Rind Crumbs  – they're SUPER convenient! But you can absolutely make your own by crushing up regular pork rinds as finely as you can. Check out all these low carb ways that you can use pork rinds!

Roast in a preheated oven until the chicken is cooked through to 180F, about 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken breasts. A probe thermometer is very useful!

Is sour cream keto friendly?

A tablespoon of sour cream contains 0.3g net carbs, so it's definitely acceptable to have sour cream on keto! You could also try my Low Carb Sour Cream and Chive Dip or Chipotle Bacon Twists with Sour Cream Dip!

As you can see, my last two recipes that significantly used sour cream have been dips – so I really enjoyed incorporating it into this easy low carb chicken recipe!
