Ingredients

  • For The Chicken:
  • 6-8 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts halved horizontally

  • 10 tbsp plain flour

  • 5 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 Tsp garlic powder

  • Salt & Pepper

  • For The Sauce:
  • Olive Oil

  • 6 tbsp butter

  • 1 Big Onion finely chopped

  • 1 whole head of garlic peeled and divided into cloves

  • 600ml chicken stock

  • 400ml heavy cream

  • 150g grated Parmesan cheese

  • 4 tablespoons fresh parsley, to serve

Directions

  • Season the chicken with salt & pepper.
  • In a bowl, combine the flour, parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Cover the chicken in the flour mixture.
  • Heat oil and butter in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Swirl pan to coat evenly.
  • Fry chicken breasts until golden on each side, cooked through and no longer pink (about 4-5 minutes each side, depending on the thickness of your chicken). Transfer to a warm plate and set aside. Repeat with remaining oil, butter and chicken breasts. When cooked, transfer the chicken onto the same plate.
  • Reduce heat to medium/low. Saut√© the onion in the remaining oil/juices in the pan until softened.
  • Add the garlic to the pan; half of the cloves should be added whole, the other half crushed/finely diced. Saut√© the smashed garlic cloves and whole garlic cloves until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the chicken stock to deglaze the pan. Scrape up any browned bits and let simmer and reduce to half, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour in the cream. Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer for about 2-3 minutes, combining all of the flavours together.
  • Mix in the parmesan cheese. Continue cooking gently for about 2-3 minutes until cheese melts, while stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to your taste and add the parsley.
  • Add the chicken back into the pan and let simmer for a further 2-3 minutes to thicken the sauce to your liking and to ensure the chicken is hot.
  • Serve and enjoy!
