Delicious boneless chicken breasts are browned in the skillet then served with a wonderful and really easy Parmesan sauce. Serve this chicken with hot cooked noodles and sliced tomatoes for a meal your family will love.

Yield: Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients:

  • 4 to 6 chicken breast halves, boneless, without skin
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ***Sauce***
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup milk or half-and-half
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish

Preparation:

Wash chicken and pat dry. Put chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap or in a food storage bag and gently pound to thin evenly. Sprinkle the chicken breasts lightly with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side, until nicely browned and cooked through. Juices should run clear when the thickest part of a chicken breast is cut with a knife.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Saute the garlic and green onions for about 1 minute. Add the cream cheese, milk or half-and-half, and Parmesan cheese and heat until hot and smooth. Stir in pepper and salt, to taste. Serve chicken with the sauce and garnish with parsley.
Serves 4 to 6.
