What You'll Need

  • 4 to 6 chicken breast halves, boneless, without skin
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup milk or half-and-half
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish

How to Make It

For Chicken:

  1. Put chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap or in a plastic food storage bag and gently pound to thin evenly.
  2. Sprinkle the chicken breasts lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add chicken and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side, until nicely browned and cooked through. Juices should run clear when the thickest part of a chicken breast is cut with a knife.

    For Sauce:

    1. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat.
    2. Saute the garlic and green onions for about 1 minute.
    3. Add the cream cheese, milk or half-and-half, and Parmesan cheese and heat until hot and smooth.
    4. Stir in pepper and salt, to taste.
    5. Ladle sauce over the chicken and garnish with parsley.
