Chicken Breast With Havarti Cheese Sauce

Diana Rattray
This boneless chicken breast recipe is easy and delicious. Serve this havarti cheese chicken with roasted potatoes or rice, along with your favorite vegetables.


  • 4 to 6 chicken breast halves
  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper or roasted red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash pepper
  • 1 cup shredded or diced havarti cheese


Heat oven to 350°. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish or a pan large enough hold the chicken in a single layer.

Wash chicken and pat dry. Place in prepared baking dish.

Combine the onion, garlic, bell pepper, and olive oil. Top each chicken breast with the onion mixture. Bake for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium low heat, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth. Add milk, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in cheese until melted. Spoon hot cheese sauce over the chicken and cook for 15 to 20 minutes longer, or until chicken is cooked through. Juices will run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork.
Serves 4 to 6.

bland, Member kimber2027

This was really, really bland. I added a lot of pepper and some dill since havarti is mixed with dill quite often. I don't know if it's fixable. Bechamel sauce not even close to thickening.
