If you’re anything like me, you love garlic. I like garlic to an almost unhealthy level (like warding off vampires level…). Garlic is by far my favorite herb to season my foods with. I put it in pasta, season my chicken with it, and of course, I love good toasty garlic bread.

Garlic is simply seasoning perfection. It has a slightly spicy flavor that when cooked becomes deliciously sweet and makes your mouth water with anticipation for that moment you take your first bite.

This garlic butter chicken has tons of garlic in it. But, don’t fret… you won’t be scaring people off with your breath. Because you’re sautéing it, the garlic gives off more of its sweet flavor than the stinky breath-causing flavor. 🙂

Ingredients for Garlic Butter Chicken

The thing I love most about this garlic butter chicken breast recipe is that it only uses ingredients that are staples in my pantry. No trips to specialty grocery stores, no last-minute sending my husband out for an ingredient that I totally forgot. That’s what makes this dinner an easy weeknight dinner… I can make it on a total whim!

Chicken – I usually grab a pack of thin-cut boneless skinless chicken breasts for this recipe. One less thing to prep. However, you can also buy regular chicken breasts and cut them in half to create 4 thin-cut breasts.

Buy whatever is on sale, there’s no wrong answer here. You just want the chicken thin so it cooks quickly and all the way through.

Chicken Seasoning – so you’re not going to really bread your chicken breasts, but you will give them a quick dredge to give them that golden crisp that tastes amazing. To make this seasoning you’ll need some flour, grated parmesan, salt, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Sauce – garlic butter sauce for chicken is delicious and SO easy to make. For this garlicky perfection, you’ll need olive oil, butter, onion, garlic (a whole head of it, you won’t regret it!), chicken broth, cream, some more grated parmesan, and parsley.

How to make Creamy Garlic Butter Chicken

Like I’ve already mentioned, this is one of my go-to busy mom meals. Simple ingredients matched with quick and easy cooking make for the ultimate dinner. So, grab your favorite skillet and get cooking!

  1. Start by prepping your chicken seasoning: in a shallow bowl, combine your flour, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Dredge your chicken breasts in the flour mixture and shake off the excess. Remember – we’re not BREADING your chicken here, just giving it a thin coating to get that nice crisp to the chicken.
  3. Next, in a large skillet over medium high heat, heat the oil and the butter. Add the chicken and cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side (or until the chicken is cooked through and golden brown).
  4. Remove your cooked chicken from the pan and set it aside. Don’t get rid of those pan drippings though! Keep them in the skillet as the base for your creamy garlic butter sauce.
  5. Now grab that head of garlic and peel it. Smash the large cloves of garlic, the smaller ones can stay intact.
  6. In the skillet (with all those juicy drippings!), add the onions and cook until they’re translucent.
  7. Add in the garlic and saute.
  8. Next, add a little broth to the pan to deglaze it. Then add the rest of the broth and the cream.
  9. Cook the sauce until it is reduced and a little thicker. It will still be somewhat thin, don’t worry. The parmesan cheese will thicken it up!
  10. Add in the parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
  11. Return the chicken to the pan and cook for about 2 minutes more – this step really gets that garlicky flavor infused into your chicken breasts.
  12. Sprinkle with parsley and a little extra parmesan, serve and enjoy!

Creamy Garlic Butter Chicken

How do you cook chicken breast without drying it out?

Chicken is for sure one of my favorite meats to cook with. It’s just so versatile and delicious (not to mention a great source of lean protein!). But, if cooked incorrectly, chicken can be dry, tough, and simply unappetizing.

I’ve found that in order to keep chicken tender and moist, you’ve got to cook it on relatively high heat for a short time. The thinner your chicken breasts, the easier it is to cook to a safe temperature without letting it dry out.

It’s also super helpful to cook and serve the chicken with a sauce. Garlic butter sauce for chicken is a perfect example! The sauce not only infuses the chicken with tons of creamy flavor, but it also helps to lock the moisture of the chicken inside!
