  • parsley for garnishment (optional)


  • Add 2 tbsp of butter to a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken and lightly season one side with salt and pepper. Cook for 3 minutes or until done. Flip the chicken and season with salt and pepper once more. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and set to the side.

Tips to Make it: 

No prep is needed (unless you're like me and like to clean your chicken first) to make this chicken in garlic cream sauce as long as you follow the recipe steps and read the notes below. This is a lightened-up cream sauce, therefore the sauce isn't thick. If you want the sauce thicker, add up to a ½ cup Parmesan cheese.


Use already thin cuts of chicken breasts at Walmart. If you buy thick cuts of chicken breast, you'll have to split them into thinner cuts and cooking time will vary.

What to Serve with Chicken in Garlic Cream Sauce:

To keep things prepless, use broccoli in a microwaveable steamed bag. Mixed vegetables, asparagus or cauliflower are great with this chicken too.
