Creamy Parmesan Chicken

I threw this together one night when I was craving some chicken parmesan but didn’t feel like the hassle of making it from scratch. It turned out so well that I’ve been making it again and again, and now you will too!

Tips for the Recipe

You will need 3 chicken breasts for this recipe. Chicken is a good source of protein and vitamin B12, so it’s a great choice for anyone who wants to add more protein to his or her diet.

Seasoning is the key to any good chicken dish. Chicken needs salt and pepper, but you can add other seasonings as well if you like. If there’s one thing I know about cooking, it’s this: salt and pepper are the two most important seasonings for chicken. If something tastes bland, just add some salt and pepper; it will probably taste much better!

This recipe uses freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a good quality one will make all the difference. If you don’t have access to fresh Parmesan, go ahead and use the pre-grated stuff that comes in bags. Just keep in mind that it won’t be as flavorful or creamy as freshly grated cheese.

  • Look for sun-dried tomatoes that are packed in oil and have no added ingredients, such as garlic or herbs.
  • Store them in a cool place in an airtight container.
  • Sun-dried tomatoes are best used within six months of purchase, but they can be refrigerated up to a year if necessary.

This is a great herb to use in chicken dishes, as it works well with almost any type of food. It’s also easy to find since there are plenty of frozen soups that include it as an ingredient.

If you’re using fresh thyme, make sure your chicken breasts are room temperature before adding them to the pan so they don’t tear or brown too quickly.

To add some color and flavor to this dish, consider garnishing the chicken with basil leaves. Basil is a versatile herb that can be used in salads, soups, stews and even desserts. It’s easy to grow at home too!

Cream is a dairy product that can be used in cooking to add richness and fat. It’s most often used in sauces, soups and desserts but is also an excellent way to add richness to a meal.

This is an incredibly easy creamy parmesan chicken recipe that comes together quickly and tastes like comfort food.

This is one of the most popular recipes around my house. It’s a family favorite, and a great way to use leftover chicken too!

This recipe comes together quickly and is so incredibly easy to make. The creamy sauce coats the chicken in rich flavor that will have you licking your fingers (or licking them for you if you’re not careful). This recipe makes enough for two generous servings or four smaller portions.

This is a quick and tasty dish that is easy to make! You can serve it with just about anything.
