I first tried Creamy Garlic Butter Chicken at a friend's potluck dinner party, and I immediately fell in love with it. I asked my friend for the recipe, and she kindly shared it with me. I've made it several times since then, and it's always a hit with my family and friends. Now, it has become one of my go-to recipes for dinner parties and family gatherings.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and black pepper, then coat them in the flour, shaking off the excess.
  3. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, until golden brown. Transfer the chicken to a baking dish and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, melt the remaining butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
  5. Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  6. Stir in the heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, thyme, oregano, and basil. Simmer for 3-4 minutes, until the sauce thickens.
  7. Pour the sauce over the chicken breasts in the baking dish, making sure to coat them evenly.
  8. Bake the chicken for 20-25 minutes, until cooked through and the sauce is bubbly.
