Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!

Notes

  • 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.
