Creamy Garlic Chicken


Creamy Garlic Chicken


2 large chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise

Flour for dredging

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons butter divided

1 whole head garlic cloves peeled

1/2 cup chicken broth or stock

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup heavy/whipping cream

Salt & pepper to taste

Parsley chopped (optional)


  1. Cut the chicken in half lengthwise so you have 4 smaller cutlets. Sprinkle them with some salt & pepper and coat them in the flour. 
  2. Add the olive oil and 1 tbsp of the butter to a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, sauté the chicken for 4-5 minutes/side or until it's nice and golden. Take the chicken out of the pan and set it aside.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium (or even med-low if using cast iron), and add the rest of the butter to the pan. Let it melt and then add the garlic cloves. Cook them for 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until they're lightly browned on the outside. 
  4. Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, and garlic powder to the pan. Let it bubble for around 4 minutes or until the liquid is noticeably reduced. 
  5. Stir in the cream and add the chicken back into the pan. Let it cook for another 5 minutes or so, until the sauce is reduced and the chicken is cooked through. Serve with freshly chopped parsley if you wish.
