  • 2 Tablespoons Butter use after the chicken is browned
  • 8 cloves Fresh Garlic
  • 1 1/3 cup Cream
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese

Instructions

Tenderize the Chicken Breast

  • Start by tenderizing/pounding the chicken breast between 2 sheets of plastic wrap.  Pound it with the flat side of a meat tenderizer to flatten the thick part of your chicken breast.  Your chicken breast should be uniform in thickness, about 3/4" thick

How to dredge Chicken Breast

  • Trim any excess fat off the raw chicken breast and pat dry with a paper towel.
  •  Beating a couple of eggs, with a fork, in a glass dish, a pie plate works great too. Add a little water to thin the eggs, about 2 Tablespoons.
    In another pie plate, add about 2/3 cup of flour.
    Using thongs, Coat your chicken breast in the egg and water mixture.  Be sure to cover all areas. Using the thongs, take the chicken out of the egg mixture and put it in the flour. Turn the chicken breast over being sure to get all areas of the chicken breast covered in flour. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken.

How to cook garlic and parmesan chicken:

  • Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add about 2 Tablespoons of butter, or other cooking oil, to a pan and turn on medium heat.
  •  Place the chicken in the pan.  Don't move it until it's golden brown. Cook on medium heat. Flip the chicken and cook until it's golden on both sides. 
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and add a couple of Tablespoons of butter.
  • Peel, crush, and roughly chop the garlic heads. Cook the garlic in the butter until lightly golden brown. Continue to cook on medium heat. 
  • Add the cream, chicken broth, parmesan, and the salt and pepper. Use a fork or a whisk to mix all the ingredients. When the mixture comes to a boil, add the chicken back into the pan.
  • Spoon the cream sauce over the chicken breasts and then place the chicken in the skillet in a 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes.
  • The sauce will thicken and turn a light golden color on top of the chicken. The internal temperature of the chicken should read 165 degrees.
