  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter * divided
  • 8 cloves garlic * thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chicken bone broth * or stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley * minced, optional


  • Season both sides of the chicken breasts with the salt and pepper.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large, deep skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the chicken and cook on one side until golden brown, about 4-6 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken.
  • Flip, and cook the other side for another 4-6 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.
  • Remove the chicken to a plate and tent with aluminum foil to keep it warm.
  • Add the remaining butter to the skillet. Once melted, add the sliced garlic.
  • Cook for 30-60 seconds, until just fragrant.
  • Add the chicken bone broth and simmer until reduced by half, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Slowly add the heavy cream and simmer until thickened, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan and coat with the sauce.
  • Garnish with fresh, minced parsley, if desired.


Tips & Techniques for the Best Creamy Garlic Chicken

  • Be careful not to brown or burn the garlic. This will result in a more bitter flavored sauce.
  • You can substitute chicken stock for the chicken bone broth. Some contain gluten so be sure to check the labels.
  • You can substitute half-and-half for the heavy cream in this recipe. Just be aware that the sauce will not be quite as thick and creamy.
  • Store leftover chicken and sauce in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
