Chicken Prep and Searing:

  • Slice chicken into 2-3 thinner pieces. Place in a bag or between wrap, pound to ½ inch thickness, and pat dry.
  • Season with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Coat both sides in flour mixture, shaking off excess.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear chicken in batches for 4-5 minutes each side. Set aside, leaving browned bits in the pan.

Making the Sauce:

  • Melt butter in the skillet over medium/medium-low heat. Use a spatula to scrape the bottom.
  • Add garlic cloves, and caramelize for 6-7 minutes.
  • Add flour, and whisk for 1-2 minutes until it browns.
  • Gradually pour in the chicken broth mixture, stirring continuously.
  • Stir in cream, bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Add Parmesan cheese.
  • Return the chicken to the pan with any juices. Spoon sauce over. Cover and cook for 5 minutes to thicken.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve with mashed potatoes and roasted green beans. Enjoy!
