Hi everyone! Today's recipe is my take on a very popular Italian Dish: "Chicken Alfredo", Creamy, rich, easy, quick and delicious, this is the perfect dinner for any day of the week, and it is so good, you can even serve it for a special occasion! I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.

Serves 4-6
Ingredients:

  • 3 Large Chicken Breast cut in half (you will end up with 6 pieces)
  • ½ cup All Purpose Flour
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • 3 minced Garlic Cloves
  • ¼ cup chopped onions
  • ¼ cup fresh Parsley (for garnish)
  • ½ cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 4oz Cream Cheese
  • 2 cups Whipping cream or heavy Cream

Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). (If you prefer, you can cook the whole dish on the stove without using the oven at all!)

In a large bowl, season the flour with salt and black pepper to taste.Mix well and coat the chicken breasts with the flour mixture.

In a large skillet or sauce pan on medium high heat, heat up 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive oil. Cook the chicken breasts for about 2 minutes on each side or until brown. (The chicken doesn't need to be cooked all the way through, it will finish cooking in the Sauce later, so do NOT over cook it, just give it a little bit of color!)

Once the chicken is golden brown on both sides, place it in a baking dish and set it aside until ready to use it.

In the same skillet, you used to brown the chicken, add 1 more tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, reduce the heat to low, and cook the onion for 1 minute. Then add in the garlic and continue to cook for 1 more minute. Add in 2 cups of cream, 4oz of cream cheese and ½ cup Parmesan Cheese, stir together, season with ground black pepper to taste, stir again, taste the flavor and add more black pepper if needed. If you want you can also add salt to taste, or you can use a little bit of Chicken Flavored bouillon seasoning to season the sauce. But the Parmesan Cheese has a lot of flavor and is kind of salty so I didn't add any salt at all!
Let the sauce continue to cook on medium-low heat until it comes to a boil.

Once the sauce is ready, pour it onto the chicken breasts and bake in a 375ºF oven, for about 8-10 minutes or until the chicken is well cooked.

Or you can finish cooking this dish on the stove. Once the sauce is ready, bring the chicken breasts back into the saucepan,and let the chicken cook in the Alfredo sauce for about 5-8 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked.

Garnish with fresh parsley and serve! Enjoy!!!
