An easy and very tasty way to perk up your mid-week menu. Very creamy and a sure win for garlic lovers. Goes great over grilled or baked chicken breasts.

Directions

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Season chicken breasts with oregano, basil, salt, and black pepper.

  • Cook the chicken breasts on preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Melt butter with vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic in the butter mixture until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir flour through the butter mixture; cook and stir until flour is incorporated, about 1 minute more. Pour heavy cream and chicken broth into the saucepan; stir. Continue cooking until the mixture thickens, 3 to 5 minutes. Add Parmesan cheese and cream cheese to the saucepan; cook, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is melted into the sauce, about 5 minutes.

  • Plate the chicken breasts. Spoon sauce over the chicken. Serve extra sauce on the side.

This was a wonderfully easy recipe to follow. However I made a slight change of my own. I doubled the sauce recipe and poured it over the raw seasoned chicken and cooked it in the oven at 350 for 30-35 minutes. The chicken was cooked in the sauce and came out juicy and full of the creamy garlic flavor. YUM!! Read More

I thought it was much too thick and rich but my husband liked it. I won't make it often due to the high calorie content. Read More

My review is for the sauce we grilled our chicken using our own favorite recipe. The sauce is a nice topping for grilled chicken a little bit sinful but nice and cheesy garlicky. I reduced the recipe for two people didn't use vegetable oil just the butter and used half and half and 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese. Read More

Wife and I absolutely loved this. As another reviewer suggested I used the 1/3 fat cream cheese and I used fat-free half & half. We like garlic so I used 3 tsp. of chopped garlic. This sauce stands up on its own and I'll use it on pasta in the future. Read More

Amazing! I made it according to directions which was great and then I made it another time with modifications. I pan-seared the chicken then used the same pan to build the sauce. I made some fettuccine tossed it in the sauce sliced the chicken an put it on top with some Parmesan. I think I preferred the modified recipe but I liked the original too. Read More

I seasoned the raw chicken a bit more in a baking dish. I added adobo garlic salt and siracha seasoning and cayenne pepper along with the other seasonings the recipe calls for. I then melted double the amount of ingredients in a pan using light butter (instead of full fat) and olive oil (instead of vegetable oil). Next I added flour garlic pepper low sodium chicken broth fat free cream and low fat cream cheese. I seasoned the sauce with some pepper and then poured it over the chicken in the baking dish. I cooked it for 30-35 minutes in the oven on 350 degrees. I served it over steamed green beans. It was one of the best meals I've ever made. Enjoy! Read More

It is really rich. I made it exactly as listed here and put it over a grilled chicken thigh. The flavor is good but I think next time I'll skip the cream cheese. Read More
