Deluxe Chicken Breasts

Very good and easy to make. We serve this with 2 vegetables. Add some garlic powder and season salt to the creamy sauce for a good kick. Also, I butterfly each breast to evenly and quickly cook the chicken.

This is my favorite recipe from Healthy Meals in Minutes, although they suggest using skim milk and low fat cheese on their recipe card, I have always used regular milk and cheese as stated here. Everyone I have made this for just loves it!

Lovely chicken breasts, like the idea of using just the egg white, cuts down on some of the fat, loved the crumb/flour coat also, it browned up nicely. The timing was right on, both for the chicken and the sauce. We particularly liked the sauce; quite delicious and light and the paprika was a nice final touch. Thanks for sharing we will be doing this one again.
