This is such a good and easy recipe. I have had this recipe for a long time. It was given to me by my mother in law when I got married and I have fixed it many times since then.
Cut up a whole chicken. Take the skin off all the pieces. (I left the skin on the drumsticks.) Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder on both sides.
Put the other parts of the chicken such as the back, wings, etc. into a freezer bag and freeze for use later. Could be the beginning of a great chicken soup later on.
Roll each piece in sour cream. I put 1 cup of sour cream on a plate. It was just enough for one chicken.
Crush 1 package of potato chips. I just smash the chips right in the bag. Then I put the chicken (after it has been rolled in sour cream) right in the potato chip bag and shake it up.
Put some foil in the bottom of a pan with a little oil. Place the chicken in the pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
This is so good served with scalloped potatoes and green beans. The scalloped potatoes can be baked with the chicken and they both will be done at the same time.
