Creamy Chicken Recipe

Easy Recipes

Dinner is served! Here’s a recipe of what you can cook tonight ❤️

INGREDIENTS
For The Chicken:
* 4 chicken breasts (pounded 1/2-inch thin)
* 2 teaspoons each of onion powder and garlic powder
* 1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
* 1/2 teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary*
* salt and pepper , to season

For The Sauce:
* 4 cloves garlic , minced (or 1 tablespoon minced garlic)
* 1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
* 1/2 teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary
* 1 cup milk (or half and half)*
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
* 1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water , until smooth

Directions
* Coat chicken breasts with the onion and garlic powders and herbs. Season generously with salt and pepper.
* Heat 1 tablespoon of oil a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken breasts until opaque and no longer pink inside (about 5 minutes each side, depending on thickness). Transfer to a plate; set aside.
* To the same pan or skillet, heat another 2 teaspoons of olive oil and sauté garlic, with parsley, thyme and rosemary, for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.
* Stir in milk (or cream); season with salt and pepper, to taste.
* Bring to a boil; add the cornstarch mixture to the centre of the pan, quickly stirring, until sauce has thickened slightly. Reduce heat and simmer gently for a further minute to allow the sauce to thicken more.
* Return chicken to the skillet. Sprinkle with extra herbs if desired. Serve immediately.

NOTES
*If you don't like Thyme or Rosemary, substitute these with Basil and Oregano, or use Tarragon.

**For a dairy free option, I find Cashew milk the best in flavour. You can also use almond milk or rice milk. Yes, heavy cream can be substituted!
