Chicken Breasts in Lemon Butter Parmesan Garlic Cream Sauce


Description

These chicken breasts are seasoned and seared to perfection then placed in a delicious lemon butter parmesan garlic cream sauce. And it’s all made in one skillet and will leave you drooling for more!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 5 Tablespoons butter, divided
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream (or half and half)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cups spinach, packed
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • s & p, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a cast iron or large skillet heat 2 Tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Salt and pepper the chicken breast and season with paprika. Cook chicken breasts 5-8 minutes each side, or until chicken is cooked through.* Set aside. 
  2. Turn heat down to medium. Heat 1 Tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add garlic. Sauté 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant. Whisk together remaining 2 Tablespoons butter, chicken broth, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, and lemon juice in pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until sauce is reduced by half (about 5-8 minutes). 
  3. Add spinach to sauce and cook until wilted (about 1-2 min). Add chicken back to pan and place in sauce. Serve.

Notes

* I flip the chicken breasts multiple times to ensure they do not burn during the cooking time.
