Creamy Chicken with Garlic and Parmesan Cheese is a delicious and comforting dish. Here’s a simple recipe for you to try:
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs (or a mix of oregano, basil, and thyme)
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
- Season Chicken: Season the chicken breasts with salt and black pepper on both sides.
- Sear Chicken: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and sear for about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
- Sauté Garlic: In the same skillet, add minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
- Deglaze Pan: Pour in the chicken broth and use a spatula to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Let it simmer for a couple of minutes.
- Add Cream: Pour in the heavy cream and bring the mixture to a simmer.
- Add Parmesan and Herbs: Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese, dried Italian herbs, and onion powder. Continue stirring until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
- Return Chicken to the Pan: Add the seared chicken breasts back to the skillet, spooning some of the sauce over the top.
- Simmer: Let the chicken simmer in the sauce for an additional 5-7 minutes, allowing it to absorb the flavors.
- Garnish and Serve: Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve the creamy chicken over pasta, rice, or with your favorite side dish.
