Chili Baked Chicken

12 chicken breast or legs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup minced green onion
2 cloves garlic
2 tsp. finely grated lemon rind
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Cayenne pepper, to taste
2-1/2 cups fine cracker crumbs
4 tsp. chili powder
1/3 cup butter, melted

Wipe chicken; trim off excess fat and loose skin. In large glass bowl, stir together sour cream, green onion, garlic, lemon rind and juice, Worcestershire sauce, thyme and black and cayenne peppers. Add chicken, turning to coat well; cover and refrigerate for 8 hours.

In shallow dish, combine cracker crumbs with chili powder. Roll chicken in crumb mixture, coating pieces thoroughly. Arrange pieces, without touching, on large lightly greased baking sheets. Drizzle with butter.

Bake in 350 F oven for 45-55 minutes or until coating is crisp and breasts are no longer pink inside or juices run clear when chicken is pierced.
