Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


  1. Prepare the Chicken: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Dredge them lightly in flour, shaking off any excess.
  2. Cook the Chicken: In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Make the Sauce: In the same skillet, add the remaining butter and minced garlic. Sauté for a minute until fragrant. Pour in the chicken broth, and scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  4. Combine Ingredients: Stir in the heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for 2-3 minutes until it starts to thicken.
  5. Finish the Dish: Return the chicken to the skillet and spoon the sauce over the breasts. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, ensuring the chicken is heated through and the sauce has thickened to your liking.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Garnish with chopped parsley and additional Parmesan cheese if desired. Serve hot with your choice of sides, like pasta, rice, or vegetables.
