Chicken Breasts in a Garlic-Cream Sauce

Chicken breasts cooked in a creamy garlic parmesan cream sauce. This quick and flavorful one skillet 20-minute dish is great on with pasta or a side of veggies! 

Garlic and parmesan are a match made in heaven. I’m addicted to garlic. I love the smell and flavor of garlic simmering in olive oil or butter. There really is no better aroma or flavor. Add parmesan to the fragrant garlic and you’ve got yourself a flavor combo that is out of this world.

Prep. time: 10 minutes / Cook time: 25 minutes / Serves 4


For chicken:
2 Chicken breasts
1 tbsp. Lemon juice
1/4 tsp. Chili powder
1 tsp. Fresh grated ginger 1 Minced garlic
1⁄2 tsp. Coriander powder 1⁄2 tsp. Turmeric
1 oz. Butter

For the sauce:
4 oz. Heavy cream
3 tbsp. Crushed tomatoes 4 fl. oz. Chicken broth
1 Onion, diced
1 Garlic clove, minced 1/4 tsp. Chili powder
1 tsp. Fresh grated ginger 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon


1. Cut the chicken breasts into small pieces, then mix them in a bowl with lemon juice, chili powder, grated ginger, chopped garlic, coriander powder, turmeric, salt and pepper.

2. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a frying pan over medium heat, then add the onions and garlic, and simmer for 2 minutes or until fragrant.

3. Add chicken pieces and cook for 4-5 minutes. When the chicken is white, add heavy cream, chicken broth, chopped tomatoes, seasonings and mix well. Bring to a boil, then

reduce the heat to minimum, cover and simmer for 6-7 minutes.

4. If you like sauce thicker – remove the lid and simmer it to the desired consistency.

5. Serve with steamed broccoli or any other low-carb product to your taste.
