Chicken Caprese with Tomato-Basil Cream

I LOVE this recipe! Very yummy and quick to make!

1 c. soft, fresh breadcrumbs (2-3 slices of bread torn and put in food processor to crumble)
1/2 cup feta cheese (crumbled)
1 Tb. chopped fresh basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 Tb olive oil
2 Tb lemon juice
4 chicken breasts

STIR together the first 5 ingredients in a shallow bowl. Whist together olive oil and lemon juice until blended. Dip chicken into olive oil mixture, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture, pressing to coat. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet or in an 11- x 7-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining breadcrumbs.
BAKE at 375 for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is done. Serve with Tomato-Basil Cream.

Tomato Basil Cream:
1 cup spaghetti sauce
2 Tb light sour cream
1 Tb chopped fresh basil
1/8 tsp sugar (I leave this out of mine)

MICROWAVE all ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH for 2 minutes stirring at 30 second intervals.
