Creamy Herb Chicken

  • Author: chefjar

  • Yield: 4 1x


This creamy herb chicken recipe is easy to make with some chicken breast in only 30 minutes. Serve it in a deliciously creamy herb sauce with mashed potatoes and veggies.



For The Chicken

  • 2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, as needed
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For The Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic, about 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 1/2 cup half and half
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water, until smooth ( use only if needed)
  • Fresh Parsley, to garnish, optional



  • Cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise to make 4 fillets. Season the fillets on both sides with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Dredge in flour and shake off excess.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken for 4-5 minutes per side, or until no longer pink inside. Work in batches not to overcrowd the skillet. Transfer to a plate.


  • In the same skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil, add the garlic together with parsley, thyme, rosemary and basil, and cook until fragrant, about 30-40 seconds.
  • Stir in half & half, sour cream and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Bring to a simmer, add the cornstarch mixture ( ONLY if NEEDED)) and stir until sauce has thickened slightly. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  • Return the chicken to the skillet. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
  • Serve over mashed potatoes.
  • Enjoy!
