  • 4 chicken breasts thin-cut
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Sauce Creamy Garlic
  • 1 onion small yellow, peeled and chopped
  • 1 garlic head garlic peeled and clove ends cut off
  • 1 ¼ cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons parsley fresh, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes


  • In a shallow bowl, combine flour, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour mixture to coat completely. Shake off any excess.
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and butter.
  • Once butter is melted, add chicken to the skillet. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side until cooked through and golden brown.
  • Remove chicken to a plate and set aside.
  • To the same skillet add the chopped onion and cook until translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add garlic and saute until soft and fragrant. Add a little chicken broth to de-glaze the pan, being sure to scrape up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the remaining broth and heavy cream to the skillet. Cook until simmering and then reduce heat to medium. Stir often until the sauce has thickened.
  • Add grated Parmesan cheese to the sauce and stir until melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Return chicken to the pan along with any resting juices on the plate. Cook for 2 minutes, spooning sauce over the chicken as it cooks.
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley and a little extra Parmesan cheese. Serve warm.
