Equipment

  • Non-stick skillet

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb. 700g skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 clove garlic minced or pressed
  • 2 tablespoon white wine
  • ¼ cup 60g chicken stock or broth
  • ¾ cup 180g heavy cream
  • ½ cup 60g parmesan cheese grated (measured after grating)
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Fresh herbs like parsley or green onions for garnishing chopped

Instructions

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper to taste on both sides.
  • Heat some olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over a medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. When done, remove from the skillet onto a plate.
  • Add the butter to the same skillet. When completely melted, add the garlic and cook until golden. Next, add the wine and cook for a minute. Then add the chicken stock and simmer for a couple of minutes or until liquids are reduced by a third.
  • Add the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Then, reduce the heat to low and add the parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted. Add extra salt and black pepper if needed.
  • When the cheese has melted, add the chicken back. Cook on low for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken onto serving plates. Whisk the sauce with a whisk or a spatula and pour on top of the chicken.
