Creamy, melted mozzarella, sharp parmesan, and herby, tangy sour cream all slathered over juicy chicken—"stick to your ribs" doesn't do this recipe justice. Smothered Cheesy Sour Cream Chicken is more like "stick to the table until every bite is gone." You'll love it so much you may not even have room for dessert!
