  • 1 lb chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1/8 tsp red crushed pepper optional
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Season the chicken on both sides with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and granulated garlic.
  • Add the all-purpose flour, 1/4 tsp salt, and 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese to a large platter and mix well. Coat the chicken on both sides, removing any excess flour.
  • Heat some oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken breasts for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken breasts from the skillet and set it aside.
  • Add the remaining butter to the skillet along with the fresh minced garlic and red crushed pepper. Cook for 20 seconds.
  • Add the heavy cream and remaining parmesan cheese. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the sauce thickens. Season the sauce with salt and pepper and place the chicken back into the skillet. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and enjoy!


  • Make sure to serve this with crusty bread to soak up all that delicious sauce.
  • Place any leftovers in an air-tight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
