Creamy, juicy Chicken recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts cut into cutlets
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon thyme
  • ⅓ cup sundried tomatoes chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour and shake off any excess.
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil and melt the butter on medium heat. Swirl pan to coat with oil and butter evenly.
  • Brown the chicken (do not overcrowd and work in batches if needed) for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer onto a plate, cover, and set aside.
  • Saute the garlic for a minute or until it’s fragrant. Add the chicken stock, and deglaze the pan scraping any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
  • Adjust the heat to medium-low, and add the heavy cream and the parmesan cheese to the skillet. Allow the sauce to simmer for a couple of minutes, then season with chili flakes, oregano.
  • Season with salt and pepper to your taste, add the sundried tomatoes then put the chicken back in the sauce and the sauce simmer and thicken for a few more minutes.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh basil leaves and serve warm over pasta or rice.

Notes:

  • Chicken cutlets/steaks are available in most supermarkets, but you can slice a chicken breast in half and get the same result.
  • When sauteing the garlic, add a little bit of sundried tomatoes oil for more flavor.
  • Do not use single/light cream as that won’t thicken the sauce enough.
  • I recommend buying a block of parmesan cheese and grating it at home. I found that store-bought parmesan cheese doesn’t have much flavor, and doesn’t dissolve well in sauces.
