Chicken Breasts in an irresistible garlic sauce filled with caramelized onions and garlic is a winner of a chicken dinner!
Easy and delicious comfort food at its finest. Lightly floured boneless chicken breasts are pan fried in butter and oil until golden and crispy before being added to a mouth-watering garlic cream sauce. Filled with caramelised flavour, you will LOVE how easy this is!
Crispy, golden chicken on the outside → tender and succulent on the inside → lightly simmered in a creamy sauce with so much flavour. The combination of your dreams! Chicken breasts tend to have a bad reputation for being too dry, chalky or hard to swallow. However, this recipe yields perfectly juicy breasts lightly floured and pan fried.
With all of the creamy sauce recipes I have on this site (Creamy Garlic Tuscan Shrimp, Creamy Dijon Chicken, Creamy Salmon Piccata, or Creamy Parmesan Shrimp), this one stands out from the crowd!
Ready in less than 30 minutes and perfect for any night of the week…even special occasions!
HOW TO COOK CHICKEN BREAST
- You’re going to start with thin chicken breasts. For a faster prep-time, cut your chicken breasts in half horizontally to make four fillets (like you did for our Chicken Marsala). Quicker and easier than pounding them thin with a meat mallet and yields the same results. Thinner chicken pieces cook faster and evenly.
- We use a combination of oil and butter to fry the chicken for the best golden browned results and delicious flavour.
- Cook the sauce in the same pan as the chicken. Don’t get rid of any chicken bits from the pan as they add tons of flavour into the sauce!
COOKING WITH GARLIC
If you’ve gone ahead and read the recipe already, you may be thinking one of two things:
A whole head of garlic?
A. This woman is crazy. TOO MUCH GARLIC. YUCK!
B. Oh my god, finally, the perfect amount of garlic.
The beauty of this chicken breast recipe is that the garlic is NOT overpowering AT ALL! The secret to having SO much garlic without being overly pungent is caramelising the cloves (some smashed and some whole) in chicken stock (or broth) for 5-6 minutes over medium heat. This allows the garlic to soften beautifully with a hint of sweetness.
YOU can make this as garlicky as you want! How? For a stronger garlic flavour, smash all of your cloves with a heavy knife. Place the blade flat on the clove (sharp side facing away from you) and press the blade down on the clove with the heel of your hand. Explained in detail here.
The garlic cloves are lightly browned in a little oil along with softened onion in buttery pan juices before being gently simmered in chicken stock. There is so much caramelization happening in this pan, its CRAZY GOOD!
For a much milder sauce, add the garlic cloves whole.
If you’ve never cooked with whole garlic cloves before, you may be breaking into a cold sweat right about now. I promise you there’s no need for a freak out. Cooking them the way you will here relaxes their usual intense flavour, instead giving them a subtle sweetness. They become so soft, like butter!
Of course, if you LOVE garlic with chicken breasts, then feel free to mince or finely chop all of the cloves and add them in.
- You can use heavy cream, whipping cream or thickened cream in the sauce.
- For a lightened up sauce, use evaporated milk or half and half. If using half and half, be careful not to bring your sauce to a rapid boil or it may curdle.
- The sauce will not thicken immediately after adding in your cream. Once you add your chicken breasts back into the pan, the flour from the chicken will thicken your sauce. No cornstarch needed. HOORAY!

Creamy Garlic Chicken Breast Recipe
For The Chicken:
- 2-3 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts halved horizontally to make 4
- 4 tablespoons flour (all purpose or plain)
- 4 tablespoons finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese
- 2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Black cracked pepper
For The Sauce:
- 5 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 small onion finely chopped
- 1 whole head of garlic peeled and divided into 10-12 cloves
- 1 1/4 cup chicken broth (stock)
- 1 1/4 cup half and half or heavy cream (or evaporated milk)
- 1/2 cup finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, to serve
- Season the chicken with salt, garlic powder and pepper.
- In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, parmesan cheese. Dredge chicken in the flour mixture; shake off excess.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl pan to coat evenly.
- Fry 2-3 chicken breasts until golden on each side, cooked through and no longer pink (about 4-5 minutes each side, depending on the thickness of your chicken). Transfer to a warm plate. Set aside.
- Wipe pan over with a sheet of paper towel. Repeat with remaining oil, butter and chicken breasts. When cooked, transfer the chicken onto the same plate.
- Reduce heat to medium. Sauté the onion in the remaining oil/juices in the pan until softened.
- Smash 6 whole cloves of garlic with the blunt edge of the back of a knife
- Add the remaining oil to the pan and heat through, mixing it through the onions. Sauté smashed garlic cloves and whole garlic cloves until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Add the broth to deglaze the pan. Scrape up any browned bits and let simmer and reduce to half, about 5 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium-low. Pour in the cream. Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer for about 2-3 minutes, combining all of the flavours together.
- Mix in the parmesan cheese. Continue cooking gently for about 2-3 minutes until cheese melts, while stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
- Add the chicken back into the pan and let simmer for a further 2-3 minutes to thicken the sauce to your liking. The chicken breast will soak up all of the delicious flavours.
- Garnish with parsley and a little black cracked pepper. Serve over pasta, cauliflower mash, zucchini noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.

This is a great recipe and I will keep it in rotation. I made a few tweaks.
1. The chicken, by itself (before you add the sauce) is delicious. I’m actually making it for the second time tonight and am skipping the sauce.
2. I subbed coconut flour for white flour.
3. I used on 1/2 tsp salt.
4. I felt like there was too much sauce, so next time, I will halve the sauce and a quarter of the onions. I’ll use it as a gravy topper instead. I like to keep the crispiness of the chicken.
Perfect. We made this recipe exactly as is and it was amazing. We served it with some spaghetti squash on day one and ate it as left overs with penne pasta the second days. Both days it was amazing.
I made tweaks to this recipe for myself and my family. Even so, this recipe is absolutely amazing. I would recommend to anyone. I use 32 oz of chicken broth to 16 oz of heavy whipping cream with a little over a cup of parm cheese and put it over alfredo noodles. its a liquidy sauce but it makes it so delicious as a pasta.
not done yet but very excited to taste the juicy flavorness yum yum and yum and as always yuhh
I never comment on recipe posts, but I couldn’t resist commenting on this one. All I have to say is that this is hands down one of the best recipes I have found anywhere, ever!! Blown away by the amazing flavors of this dish- it was a huge hit!
Fantastic recipe! It was a massive hit with the wife and kids and has now become a regular request! I add diced bacon and spinach gnocchi and the flavours are amazing.
Delicious! This dish is one of the best dishes I have made with chicken. Definitely going into the rotation. Well done and thank you for sharing.
Freyja Laufer says
We LOVE this recipe! So yummy and creamy and unique, but verstile enough to pair with a creative or healthy side dish.
Great dish!! So flavorful. Added spinach as well. Delish!
This was amazing! I followed the recipe to the T but added spinach because I can’t imagine dinner without spinach. Definitely keeping this one on hand. Thank you!
This meal was such a hit with my family that it’s now one of our default meals when we don’t know what to make with chicken. It’s hard to please three kids in different age groups (toddler, elementary, middle schooler) Thank you for sharing this recipe with the world!
DELICIOUS!!! So flavorful reach tasty and very easy to made with simple ingredients. I made it many times and every time my friends, who tried, asking for recipe. Thank you Karina❤ it’s truly DELICIOUS and a keeper!!!
maria g says
First of all, that was delicious. Paired as many others with potatoes. True french feeling food. I went for the whipping cream. Husband LOVED. I did add some chopped crimini mushrooms with the onion step and added splash dry marsala wine. Yum!!
Made this for dinner tonight. Wow! Delicious! This recipe is a keeper
MARGARETH S DE OLIVEIRA says
This recipe came out SO good! The chicken was so tender and juicy while fully cooked. And the sauce gave it a great balance of flavor! My family enjoyed it and will be a staple meal for our table!!
I was looking for something different to do with chicken last night and immediately went to my go to, Cafe Delites. I just by chance had all of the ingredients. This recipe was so easy and very flavorful! My family loved it and it is now saved in my recipe box!
Karina, thanks for another great and easy recipe!
This recipe was so delicious! I added sautéed mushrooms which went really well. It took much longer to reduce the sauce for the recipe which added to the cooking time but the garlic gave it a wonderful flavor. One question, I see the recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of butter for the sauce but the instructions don’t say when to add it. Overall, loved it and will make it again! Thank you.
Excellent recipe my family loved it! I will be making this again!
Kate Smith says
Holy Cow!! So delicious. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly. I did add about a quarter cup of dry sherry to the sauce near the end and served it on egg noodles. I think I will just make the sauce in the future and add it to pasta instead of Alfredo. It is that good. Thanks
This was super tasty over pasta. Using heavy cream the sauce was think enough to stick to the pasta. Also threw in some mushrooms which were a good addition.
Yum, added spinach and grape tomatoes at the end , otherwise followed recipe to the T. Yum
Susan Guest says
This is certainly a 5 star recipe. I didn’t need dessert afterwards because the sauce alone is like dessert to me. So very delicious.
Diana Valdes says
Was looking for an easy chicken recipe last night on YouTube and this was at the top of the list. Gave it a quick view and knew I just had to make it (I halved all the ingredients). My daughter and I loved it . . . it was delicious, flavorful, and easy. Went to the link and came across so many recipes that I will definitely try at home.
I made it for the first time and my boyfriend just loved it.
I was craving some new chicken recipes and stumbled across this one. We tried this recipe recently and it was really good and easy to make! We’ll be making this again.
Wow! Such a yummy dish. My boyfriend had to stop himself from licking the plate! I added sliced sautéed mushrooms and fresh spinach to the sauce when I put the chicken back in. Served it over zoodles. Only note-watch how much salt you use to season it. Has sufficient salt from the Parmesan cheese, pre-seasoning of the chicken, chicken stock and butter. I should probably invest in some no salt chicken stock and unsalted butter. Learn from my error! Thanks for the great recipe!
I literally licked my plate. I have 4 kids who almost fell out of their chairs.
FANTASTIC! Loved, loved, loved the garlicy, creamy goodness. My whole family raved, too. Will definitely be adding this to my regular recipe pile! Thank you!
can you use coconut flour instead of all purpose flour etc?
I’ve never seen such wonderful chicken recipes all together in one place. I’m very excited. Thank you.
Loved this recipe! I actually added 1 cup of white wine. My hubs said it was better than anything he had ever eaten at Olive Garden….Win!!
I don’t think I have ever commented on a recipe, but while I’m sitting here breathing heavy from being so stuffed…I had to comment!!! OMFG this recipe was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I didn’t change a thing and WOW WOW WOW!!! My husband is the cook in our house, but we had to put our dog down today so I decided to try today and made this recipe. Normally after I cook, my husband’s response is “it’s not bad or it’s alright” and for probably the 1/10 times in 9 years he said wow this is really good! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING THANK YOU!!!
This has become a staple meal in my house. It’s so good!! I love serving it over a bed of pasta. YUM.
First of all this was not too garlicky. Will actually add more next time.(we love our garlic). Took 2 handfuls of fresh spinach, chopped it and added to sauce as I always need to add greens to my meals. Served over wild/brown rice combo. Delish. Total hit with the family.
Forgot to add I cut chicken into bite size pieces to serve.
I’ve made this before with heavy cream and it was amazeballs however I just tried with evaporated milk and the milk curdled. Anyone wonder why?
Bringing your sauce to a rapid boil will cause your sauce to curdle .
AWESOME! So good and flavourful. Will def be using this recipe again
Omayra Velez says
OMG i made it and it turns out awesome!! Thanks hun!!!!!
Who in the world do you think you are making a recipe this amazing?! You are a God send!! Thank you so much! This was so fantastic. My husband and Mother in Law raved about this recipe for days. It was so good and even reheated well. I served it over stuffed ravioli and I used plain bread crumbs instead of flour and it was delish!!
Can I use coconut cream? My wife is dairy free.
I made this a few weeks ago, my husband is not one for creamy anything, and he loved it, the whole family loved it.
Making out again tonight, and will make this at least once a month.
Thank you for this wonderful, amazing recipe.
Charles B. says
Wow! This recipe is amazing! It’s the first internet recipe I’ve ever felt the need to review, it was THAT good!
I followed the recipe exactly, and opted for heavy cream instead of evaporated milk. It took a little longer to thicken to my tastes, but it was so delicious that it was worth the wait.
This recipe is definitely going to be a new regular meal in my house!
Charles B. says
Apologies; I actually lied in that review. I roasted the garlic instead of frying it. I love roasting garlic!
I agree totally! My husband said it is the best thing I have ever made!!
I just made this but I cut up the chicken. Added bow tie pasta, spinach and tomatoes. It was amazing.
Ms. Smith says
That sounds really good. Did you cook pasta separately?
I’ve made this recipe 2 times already and it’s absolutely delicious. One of my favorites ever! So simple as well because I always have these ingredients on hand. The sauce is to die for! Xoxo
So, so GOOD!!! That’s all I have to say about that…
Me and my husband loved it! I used the evaporated milk and blended with a poblano pepper that I roasted. Also roasted the garlics , and blended the sauce at the end because my husband is picky. It was delicious, we ate it with roasted potatoes, the sauce was flavorful.
I made this recipe this evening but, didn’t have cream or evaporated milk so i used cream of mushroom soup and OMG it was delicious!!! I do plan on making it again with evaporated milk to see how it turns out.
Definitely took over 35 minutes for me and hubby to make, started at 530 and didn’t sit down to eat until 630ish! Nonetheless it was amazing, the in laws loved it and it was soo easy to clean up! Hubby is taking it for lunch tomorrow which is a major win for me 🙂
Nicole W says
All I have to say is WOW. I’m rarely floored by recipes I find online, it’s easy to find recipes that are good and very good but hard to find ones that are amazing! This is definitely one of them. I would definitely make this for guests!! Hubby and I loved it. Thank you!!
I made this last night and OMG, it was amazing! I used evaporated milk rather than cream, and I also added half a large zucchini with the onions (to get more veggies in). When everything was done cooking I took out the breasts and stuck the sauce in the blender to ensure a smooth, creamy sauce. Sooo yummy! I also added extra garlic because I LOVE garlic. I’ll definitely be making this again soon. I served it over linguine.
Oh and I also left out the parmesan entirely as I had none. It was still super yummy.
This was so delicious! My daughter is a picky eater and had thirds. She even asked if I could make it again tomorrow. Easy to follow instructions and few ingredients. ♥️
Very impressed with this recipe. The only modifications I made were 2 cups of both cream and broth since I was making 6 breasts and using the sauce as gravy for the mashed potatoes. Everyone said it was delicious and my mom who never eats a lot had 2 pieces of chicken! Served with the potatoes and brussel sprouts and will definitely make again.
Nancy Mariner says
Can the cream/half and half/evaporated milk be substituted with plain yogurt?
I used plain greek yogurt. Make sure that you take the pan off heat and let cool slightly before adding it in, otherwise it will curdle. It made my sauce super thick so I ended up blending it together to smooth out. Super good though!
I am about to make this again for the 4th time!! Me and my sister in law love it!!! Everyone else hates it until they eat it and then they love it until I decide to make it again!!!!
I had no clue what to cook tonight but searched chicken breast and this looked easy.
I made it with evaporated milk as that was all I had.
Just served this to hubby and he yelled ‘This is great’.
I’ve only had a taste of some of his leftover rice in the sauce and OMG!!!
I’ve got two chicken breasts sitting in the sauce ready for when I get hungry. Can’t wait!!!
He told me this is definitely a keeper.
Love your work xxx
Sheryl B. says
Had a birthday day dinner with company and this was the main meal. I got rave reviews for how delicious the flavors were.
Served with rice pilaf and bacon and onion green beans.
This will be on my list to make!!!
I’m excited to try more recipes!!!
Seriously so good. I never leave recipe reviews but I had to on this one. It is amazing! The only difference for me was it took probably ten minutes for the sauce to thicken up as I wanted it to.
I found this site by accident and this recipe stood out because it looked simple with few ingredients. Well…it was easy and delicious! My picky eater rated this 10 out of 10 and asked that I make it again. This says a lot!! Thank you. I have pinned your site to try more recipes in the future.
C. Dritsas says
This is a wonderful recipe. I added a little less salt to the sauce and the flavor was perfect. We served the chicken with roasted russet potatoes. The sauce was so good, I drizzled some of it on my potatoes and it was awesome. Everyone in the family loved it!
This is one I’ll definitely make again. It got rave reviews from my guests. I have never commented on a recipe before
I loved this recipe. I don’t know if I read the recipe wrong, but I added ALL of the salt, cracked pepper and garlic powder mixture to season the raw chicken. Needless to say, the chicken was salty, but I just didn’t add any salt to the sauce and it was perfect!!
I already want to make it again. I’m gonna share this one fo’ sho’
Kim Heberlein says
Very tasty. I reduced the salt by half and it was still good. Thanks for the recipe.
I love garlic so I’m about to try your recipe for the first time for a Sunday Dinner… I will comment again soon for my results…thank you
How did your Sunday Dinner go?
Paul Miller says
I just got done making this!!! Omgggg it is the best chicken recipe I made in my life. I used my electric skillet. The only thing I changed was left out the onions because my husband doesn’t like them ? I took a bite and it melted in my mouth. It is sooo good. Thank you for sharing.
This recipe is awesome! I didn’t make any changes at all and I served it with mashed potatoes and broccoli. The sauce is sooo good, I ended up eating it with by the spoonful after the chicken was gone!
This was one of the best and easy chicken dishes I’ve ever made. I will definitely make it again.
Terra-Lynne Herrera says
AMAZING!! Very easy to make and it was out of this world good, I absolutely loved it and so did my family!!
Thank you for sharing this recipe ‘ This was delicious! Definitely a keeper when the family can’t get enough of it. Not an overpowering garlic dish. Served it over rice. Had a small baguette to soak up the delicious sauce. It was a heavy meal but it was sooo good! Next time will try it over mash potato and veggies.
Amazing!!! Not only does it smell delicious, but the taste is spectacular!! Definitely a keeper!!!
Would a slow cooker work?
Hi, can you use chicken thighs instead?
Made this recipe tonight and was very pleased with the results. Definitely a keeper and will be making this recipe for company.
Amazing. Will certainly make again.
I have made this once and it was WOW amazing! Making again tomorrow. Your chicken recipes are all fabulous! I follow your steps to pan cooking chicken in all my recipes and it comes out perfect. I do use 1% milk in all of my creamy recipes and it is still unbelievable.
Tried this out tonight and my 9 yo daughter said it was the best thing she’s ever tasted. Looks like it’s going into regular rotation! Thanks so much for sharing!
Great recipe!! Never too much garlic! 🙂 Dunno how you did all that prep in 15 min though, took us a solid 30! Bringing total time closer to an hour. Well worth it though! Had it over rice. Toddler loved it too.
This was sooooo good!! My whole family loved it, thank you for sharing ?
THE best chicken recipe ever! I improvised the hell out of it tonight, straining chicken noodle soup and adding water to make the 1 1/4 cup; also used shredded mozzarella since that’s what we had and it still came out amazing.
This was delicious!! My family enjoyed it. I served it over noodles. I am going to try it with shrimp next time. I think this is a good option for a dinner party.
A. Nealy says
My family LOVED this recipe. So delicious.
Has anyone tried this with chicken thighs? I don’t currently have chicken breasts.
Yes you can definitely use thighs!
This was delicious!!!! Made it tonight! Took Wayne longer than 35 minutes….. but was well worth it!! My tricky eaters even ate it!!! Yay!! Made it with mashed potatoes and steamed zucchini and yellow squash! WE all loved I it! I will for sure be making it again! Maybe it wil go a little faster
I never comment on recipes, but couldn’t resist for this one, I absolutely love this. I’ve made it twice in the past week and it’s definitely going to become a staple meal in my house. Made with risotto last time and having with cauliflower rice this time. Thank you for this fabulous recipe!
Nancy Trauffler says
This is a keeper!! Mine wasnt as pretty as the picture….my chicken wasnt as brown so the meal looked a little “white” with mashed potatoes. I added water chestnuts to the dish and they were really good in it. I used a whole clove of elephant garlic and could have used more. Thank U for a great recipe! Will serve for company.
Meghan Baxley says
Amy recommendations on making this a freezer meal?
This turned out amazing! Make sure you have some kind of mash or baguette to soak up the delicious sauce. I only put in 1 cup of cream as extra seemed like too much but damn!! This is going in my recipe book. Thank you!
Thank you for sharing this recipe ‘ This was delicious! Definitely a keeper when the family can’t get enough of it. Not an overpowering garlic dish. Served it over rice. Had a small baguette to soak up the delicious sauce. It was a heavy meal but it was sooo good! Next time will try it over mash potato and veggies.
Just made this! Added mushrooms and used super light cream. Had option of buttered rice and mini pennes pasta with a side of spinach. Yum yum. Definitely making these again. Oh and you can never have too many garlic!
This was so tasty-thank you!!
Susan Tadko says
Made this for dinner tonight. Really loved it. Added a can of mushrooms and used light cream. Cooked noodles and added those right into the skillet to coat them with all this delicious sauce. Definitely a keeper. Thank you!
Karina you are AMAZING!!! My husband and I love this. It’s perfect for the two of us, we get a nice dinner and awesome left overs. I honestly feel like the world’s best wifey when I make this. Thank you thank you thank you for a wonderful recipe, you are doing the Lord’s work.
This recipe does not need any changes or substitutions to turn out the way it looks in the post.
This was delicious. Not a speedy dinner, but well worth all the steps to get to the delightful ending. Next time I will add mushrooms.
Loved this. Can’t wait to have the leftovers. Pretty much made as written except for a small addition of white wine to thin the sauce
This is delicious! I’ve made it several times with mashed potatoes and sauteed green beans. My kids favorite new meal:)
can we use minced garlic in a jar?
Jodie Smith says
I did and it was good! I also used half the amount of butter and oil and it was so good. Everyone loved it. Next time I will add spinach, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes.
This was delicious. I deglazed the pan with white wine,and then used the chicken broth that I boiled the garlic in. I added cooked pasta in the dish to make it a one-pot meal. Next time I’m going to add some veggies like mushrooms and broccoli. Very tasty!! Thank you.
Joanna Chafee says
So good! I hate frying things so I baked the chicken and it was still amazing. My husband LOVED it. Thank you!
This has to be the BEST chicken recipe I’ve ever made! We added mushrooms and it was incredible! Hubby LOVED it!
I was going to add mushrooms too, but wanted the first time to try exact. It was amazing. I am definitely adding mushrooms next time.
R L says
Excellent, cooked in two pans so that I could have mushrooms in one for those of us who like it. Almost like chicken Marsala, but parmesan instead of Marsala and onions instead of shallots..
Jessica Wilcox says
Any way to ditch the flour and make it gluten free? If I just left it out would it change it drastically?
I made it without any flour and it was still amazing!
I used bob red mills 1:1 flour which is gluten free and it came out good.
We love garlic! Just finished eating this dish along with mashed potatoes and have to say it was pretty awesome. Made a couple of changes though. We used a whole head of garlic so I omitted the garlic powder. A little tip about having to remove the garlic paper for that much garlic…put it in the microwave for about 10 or 12 seconds and the paper comes right off! We live in Mexico and can’t buy heavy cream so I used a cup of half and half along with a few tablespoons of Mexican crema to tighten it up. A nice simple green salad ended the meal. There was some sauce left so that’s going on some pasta for lunch tomorrow.
Ana González says
I made this recipe of chicken last night, and I really liked it! so easy to follow up the procedure and very fast to cook.
The taste, the creamy sause is so delicious! My husband, was impressed with this recipe, because he’s does not like chicken breast, but last night he enjoy his dinner.
Thank you so much for sharing with us the recipe.
This was an easy recipe and a great choice for something different to do with chicken. Such good, rich flavor. Even with all the garlic it calls for it is NOT overpowering. A must try!!
I made this early this morning to bring to my home that is being renovated. I also made a mistake and added too much olive oil! I tossed in a little bit of flour to correct that. I must say that this is one of the best chicken dishes I have tasted in a long time. It was super juicy and flavorful even after being reheated later in the day. This recipe is a BIG keeper. I can’t wait to try the next one! Thank you so much!
This recipe is one of the best i have ever made! Delish!!!
made sit tonight, it went over well! I will make it again!
Elizabeth P says
I had a different plan for dinner tonight but found this and decided to try it since I had all the ingredients. It was AMAZING! My picky daughter and loving husband devoured every bite. Thank you so much!! This is definitely going into my list of family favorites.
Wow! This is a easy and amazing recipe! I made absolutely NO tweaks to the recipe and it came out fantastic!
I’m so happy you loved it Katherine!
Jessica Gahm says
I never leave comments but this was the best chicken I’ve ever had!! I’m eating Keto so I just subbed the flour for almond flour. My entire family ate it up and my youngest said it was the best meat I’ve ever cooked. I will forward this on to everyone I know!
Oh…I made this tonight and was nervous about subbing out white flour for almond but I chickened out…I’ll have to try that next time
What can I substitute the flour for? almond flour works?
Found your site and this recipe purely by chance. I’ve sliced the filets up because of a 4 year old and added a small amount of spinach as it was in the fridge
This was exactly what I had been craving for a couple of weeks – or maybe my entire life. I added parmesan, garlic, and oregano to the flour, and didn’t use black pepper (my mother can’t have it and I got used to cooking with white pepper if any), but otherwise followed the recipe. I served it over pasta and fell in love. It was a hit with everyone at the table.
The leftovers were amazing too. For reheating, I put all the leftovers (which wasn’t much) in a small sauce pot and added a little bit of water over the time of reheating as the sauce got really thick, this coated the pasts well in the sauce.
Looks wonderful! For those of us that are lactose intolerant could almond milk be substituted for the heavy cream? Thanks!
Yes, you can use almond milk. However, you need to cook it on low heat.
This dish tastes like I am at a gourmet restaurant!! It is AMAZING! So flavorful! This is my new favorite recipe !!
Jennifer Frazier says
Could the sauce be doubled to use with pasta?
Cathy Howard says
This looks beautiful. can’t wait to try it… Spent a lot of time cooking and oh lots of baking for family and friends for Christmas .. actually tried your best fudgy chocolate cake for Christmas. we had soo much food.. Happy and Healthy 2019!!!!
Paula Granica says
I spent Christmas with my both daughters and new son in law and his family. They got married Dec. 8 th. Had a wonderful time.
We spent our Christmas with our grown children and grand puppy’s. We had our traditional turkey dinner with all the fixings! I added the brown sugar ham recipe from here and it was delicious! Our evening was filled with laughter and chatter while we played games and reminisced about all our Christmas’s before when our kids were young…this is my favourite part of our Christmas together ??
Steve Wood says
I love this recipe. it’s a favorite in my home.
Sherri Apicella says
We spent Christmas together as a family. My daughters were able to come home from college for Christmas and my mom flew in for Christmas. We went to candlelight Christmas Eve service then went over to the in laws for Christmas. Then Christmas days we had hot cinnamon rolls for breakfast opened up presents and later had a nice Christmas dinner together then watched Christmas movies together.
I made this last night with mashed potatoes. It was AMAZING!!!!! The second I served the plates I didn’t hear a PIN drop….everyone was too busy eating…everyone wanted seconds…will DEFINITELY make this again ❤️
I am so glad to hear that this is a family favourite! it sure is in my household! Merry Christmas to you all, enjoy the rest of your holidays!
Your recipes are phenomenal! Simple but yet absolutely perfect! Your combination of flavours are truly a work of art!
Julie Martin says
I didn’t know what to make for dinner tonight when I got up. I always have frozen chicken breasts on hand and made this for dinner. It was wonderful! I shouldn’t have used cast iron because you need to turn the pan down twice and the cast iron just holds heat too long. Other than that this is wonderful; the chicken is juicy and all of the Parmesan gives a deep flavor.
Michael C says
Going to cook this as celebration dinner in honor of my father who we just loss to a heart ailment. Nothing like excellent recepies to celebrate the memory of a fellow foodie and lover of good food.
I am so sorry for your loss. God bless. ❤️
Mary Lou Ramirez says
I enjoy new recipes, especially on different ways to cook vegetables. I eat or rather like very limited vegetables. I know thhis will expand my taste buds for healthy eating. Thank you for sharing!!
