INGREDIENTS

Chicken:

Chicken breasts (skinless and halved horizontally to make 4-5)- 2-3

4 tbsp Fresh grated Pecorino Romano cheese

2 tsp Garlic powder

4 tbsp All-purpose flour

3 tbsp Vegetable oil

2 tbsp unsalted butter

2 tsp Salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

Sauce:

13-14 Garlic cloves

1 onion (finely chopped)

1 1/4 c. Half & half or heavy cream

1 1/4 c. chicken stock or broth

2 tbsp Fresh parsley (finely chopped), or as needed

1/2 c. Fresh grated Pecorino Romano cheese

How to make Creamy Garlic Chicken Breasts

Step 1: On a cutting board, place the chicken. Pat the chicken dry and sprinkle all sides with ground black pepper, salt, and garlic powder.

Step 2: In a shallow bowl, place the flour and Pecorino Romano cheese. Mix well until combined. Dredge the chicken in it, then shake the excess off.

Step 3: Heat the vegetable oil and butter in a large non-stick pan/skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan once the oil is hot and fry for about 5 minutes on each side until golden and completely cooked. On a plate, transfer the chicken when done and set aside.

Step 4: Saute the onion in the now-empty pan/skillet over medium heat until clear and soft. Smash about 7 to 8 garlic cloves using a heavy knife, then add them to the pan along with the whole garlic cloves. Continue to saute for another 3 minutes.

Step 5: To the pan, pour in the chicken stock and scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Let it simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes over medium-low heat. Then, pour in the half-and-half. Bring to a simmer for approximately 2 minutes.

Step 6: Now, add the Pecorino Romano cheese and continue to cook until the cheese has melted. Season with black pepper and add more salt as needed.

Step 7: To the pan, place the chicken and garnish it with some fresh parsley.

Step 8: When done, serve the creamy garlic chicken breast over mashed potatoes or steamed broccoli. Enjoy!
