How to make the parmesan topping?

When making this melt in your mouth parmesan chicken recipe, you need sour cream or Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, and shredded parmesan cheese. Get freshly shredded or shred yourself, do not use the powdered stuff! If you have an adversion to mayonnaise, you can leave it out, but it does help to balance the tang of the sour cream or yogurt. In a small bowl, mix together sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic powder, and shredded parmesan. Coat the chicken then top with more shredded parmesan! Such simple ingredients, but so much flavor!
