DIRECTIONS

  • Heat olive oil in frying pan on medium heat.
  • Coat chicken in breadcrumbs, optionally with a milk or egg wash first.
  • Cook chicken approximately 4-5 minutes on each side, until done. Slice a bit of chicken to ensure doneness.
  • Remove chicken from pan, leaving behind any drippings and grease.
  • Deglaze pan with chicken broth.
  • Add heavy cream, basil,garlic, butter, tomatoes, and half the parmesan cheese.
  • Simmer, stirring often to prevent any burning and to incorporate chicken drippings.
  • Add remaining parmesan cheese as desired. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • When cream sauce has thickened, turn heat to low. A small amount of flour or corn starch can be used to thicken it faster if needed.
  • Serve chicken on top of pasta, covered in the cream sauce. Garnish with parsley and parmesan.
