ground black pepper
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Take a flat pan or a bowl and combine the panko bread crumbs with the chili flakes (add as much as you like) with the oregano, basil, garlic powder, parmesan cheese, a pinch of sea salt and a pinch of black pepper and mix together. I ended up adding chili powder and flakes to mine because I like a bit of heat in my chicken parmesan.
Now take another bowl and add the sour cream to it. Next add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper to the chicken breasts and then dredge the chicken breasts through the bowl with the sour cream and then cover it with the panko bread crumb mixture.
Now you have two options, you can heat a pan to medium high add a large drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and kind of sear the chicken breasts first and then go to the baking sheet, or you can do what I do and place them directly on a baking sheet and into the oven for about 12 to 15 minutes or until they're cooked all the way. Either one works great.
You can alter with garlic powder, chili powder any anything else to match it to your own individual taste.
