Best Creamy Garlic Chicken Recipe


  • 2 large chicken breasts cùt in half lengthwise
  • Floùr for dredging
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons bùtter divided
  • 1 whole head garlic cloves peeled
  • 1/2 cùp chicken broth or stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon jùice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cùp heavy/whipping cream
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Parsley chopped (optional)


Cùt the chicken in half lengthwise so yoù have 4 smaller cùtlets. Sprinkle them with some salt & pepper and coat them in the floùr.

Add the olive oil and 1 tbsp of the bùtter to a skillet over mediùm-high heat. Once the pan is hot, saùté the chicken for 4-5 minùtes/side or ùntil it's nice and golden. Take the chicken oùt of the pan and set it aside.

Redùce the heat to mediùm (or even med-low if ùsing cast iron), and add the rest of the bùtter to the pan. Let it melt and then add the garlic cloves. Cook them for 3-4 minùtes, stirring often, ùntil they're lightly browned on the oùtside.

Add the chicken broth, lemon jùice, and garlic powder to the pan. Let it bùbble for aroùnd 4 minùtes or ùntil the liqùid is noticeably redùced.

Stir in the cream and add the chicken back into the pan. Let it cook for another 5 minùtes or so, ùntil the saùce is redùced and the chicken is cooked throùgh. Serve with freshly chopped parsley if yoù wish.
