I changed a few little things:
I used boneless chicken breasts that were defrosted;
I replaced the thyme with 1 tsp red pepper flakes;
I added 1/8 tsp black pepper and a sprinkle of parsley flakes;
Then I took the leftover sour cream mixture and mixed it in with 1/3 head (about 2 servings) raw cauliflower and put it in a separate covered casserole dish.

I cooked 4 chicken breasts in an uncovered casserole + the cauliflower in a covered casserole for 40 minutes on 375.
IT WAS FABULOUS. A little kick to it, but not too much.
The cauliflower had some sauce in the bottom of the casserole that I used to dip the chicken into.

Rich Sour Cream Chicken
8 chicken breast halves with skin and bones
1-1/2 c crushed pork rinds(about 20 rinds)
1-1/2 c sour cream
1-1/2 t salt
1 t thyme
1 t paprika
1 t garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350F.
Butter or oil an ovenproof baking dish(or broiler pan) large enough to hold the chicken.
Wash the chicken and pat dry with paper towels.
(Optional: for tastiest, juiciest chicken, wash the night before, and while still wet, sprinkle liberally with kosher salt, cover tightly, and refrigerate overnight; Rinse well and pat dry, then proceed with the recipe below, reducing the salt to 3/4 t in the sauce.)

Place the crushed pork rinds on a plate or a piece of wax paper.
In a wide, shallow bowl, mix together the sour cream, salt, thyme, paprika and garlic powder.
Dip the chicken into the sour cream mixture, then roll it in the crushed pork rinds.
Place the chicken pieces in the baking dish or pan.
Bake for 1-hour at 350F or until thoroughly cooked and tender.
