Prep Work:

  1. Combine the chicken broth, bouillon, soy sauce, onion powder, mustard powder, and thyme. Set aside.
  2. Combine flour and Parmesan cheese on a plate and measure out additional ingredients prior to beginning.
  3. Cut, Pound, Dredge, and Sear the Chicken:
  4. Slice the chicken to create 2-3 thinner slices. Place the chicken in a gallon freezer bag (or in between saran wrap) and use the textured side of a meat mallet to pound it to Β½ inch thick. Pat completely dry.
  5. Season with Italian seasoning and salt/pepper. Dredge each side in the flour mixture. Tap off excess.
  6. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken in batches for 4-5 minutes per side, until a golden crust has developed. Set aside and leave brown remnants in the pan. (See notes for key tips for searing chicken.)


Make the Sauce:

  1. Melt the butter in the skillet over medium heat. Use a silicone spatula to β€œclean” the bottom of the pot. Add the garlic cloves and let them soften and caramelize for 6-7 minutes.
  2. Add the flour and whisk with a fork for 1-2 minutes, until raw flour smell is gone and it begins to brown.
  3. Add the chicken broth mixture in splashes, stirring continuously.
  4. Stir in the cream. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Stir in the Parmesan cheese.
  5. Add the chicken back to the pan along with any juice from the plate. Spoon the sauce on top. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. The sauce will continue to thicken during this time.
  6. Garnish with parsley and serve with mashed potatoes and roasted green beans!



βž” Pro Tips:


  • Pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness before cooking them. This will ensure that they cook evenly and won’t dry out.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken. It should reach 165Β°F to be fully cooked.
  • Don’t overcook the garlic or it will become bitter.
  • For an extra burst of flavor, add some chopped sun-dried tomatoes to the sauce.



βž” Notes:


  • If you prefer a thinner sauce, add more chicken broth to the skillet.
  • You can use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts if you prefer. Just adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  • This recipe is gluten-free and low-carb, making it a great option for those with dietary restrictions.




βž” Storage:


  • Leftover creamy garlic chicken can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
  • Reheat the chicken in the microwave or on the stovetop over low heat until warmed through.
  • The sauce may thicken in the fridge, so add some extra chicken broth or heavy cream to thin it out before reheating.
