Creamy garlic parmesan chicken is a quick and easy dinner. It will be on your table in 30 minutes and is great with mashed potatoes or a side of veggies.


For The Chicken:

  • Large boneless and skinless chicken breasts (halved horizontally to make 4)-2
  • All-purpose flour-3 tablespoons
  • Finely grated Parmesan cheese- 3 tablespoons
  • Garlic powder- 1 teaspoon
  • Salt & pepper- to taste
  • Oil-2 tablespoons

For The Sauce:

  • Butter-1 tablespoon
  • Garlic (minced)-3
  • All-purpose flour-1 tablespoon
  • Chicken broth- 3/4 cup
  • Cooking cream-1 cup
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese-1/2 cup
  • Fresh thyme sprigs-1-2
  • Black pepper & salt-to taste


  • Combine the flour, parmesan and garlic powder in a shallow bowl. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge in the flour mixture and shake off excess. Keep aside.
  • In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. When it is hot, add the chicken and cook until golden on both sides and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of your fillets. Transfer to a plate  and keep warm.
  • In the same skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add the flour and garlic and cook for 20 seconds, stirring continuously.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and whisk until well combined and lumps free. 
  • Add in the cooking cream and bring the sauce to a gentle simmer; season with salt and pepper to your taste; stir in the parmesan cheese. Continue cooking for about 1-2 minutes until thickened. (If the sauce is too runny for your liking, add more parmesan cheese or flour. It will begin to thicken immediately.
  • Return the chicken back to the skillet, allow to simmer in the sauce  for a minute to soak up all the flavors. Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs or parsley. Enjoy!
