Ready In:




  • Melt butter in a skillet on medium heat, add onions and saute for two minutes. More butter can be used if desired.
  • Add chicken and season with pepper and season all to taste. Cook until no longer pink.
  • Using a knife, cut a few small slits in each chicken breast. This will allow the flavor to absorb into the chicken.
  • Poor chicken broth over the chicken and simmer for at least 15 minutes, turning occasionally to avoid scorching. More seasoning can be added while simmering if desired. If serving over rice, prepare rice while chicken is simmering.

  1. Very, very tasty! Simple to make and wonderful flavor.Like the other reviewers, I couldn't find Swanson roasted garlic broth, so I used plain broth and added some fresh chopped garlic with the onions. My first time making this recipe, I made the mistake of using Tony Chachere's instead of seasoning salt and the chicken was almost too salty to eat! Next time I just omitted the seasoning salt and it still came out delicious!
  2. Ohhh boy!!! Was this ever tender, moist and tasty. You could cut the chicken with your fork --didn't even need a knife. I also couldn't find roasted garlic broth, so added some chopped garlic to the onion sauteeing and used seasoning salt. I cut down on the butter and it was still S-O-O-O good!! Will make again for sure. Made for Fall PAC 2009 and very glad I did!!
  3. Really good, and really easy! I couldn't find Swanson roasted garlic broth, so I used normal broth instead and added some minced garlic with the onions.


I am a 911 dispatcher of four years and love my job! I have a wonderful boyfriend, Brandon who I have been with for over a year now...maybe someday I will be lucky enough to be his wife! He is great, makes me the happiest I've ever been. I love to cook, I guess it's sort of become a hobby of mine. I like to try new recipes and also enjoy preparing my older ones for family and friends. It is a huge compliment to me when my boyfriend says his pants are fitting tight and that I feed him too well, lol. When I'm not cooking, I enjoy riding four wheelers, dancing, shopping, scrapbooking, bowling, watching NASCAR, etc. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2001 and basically I am insulin resistant, therefore I really need to find some good recipes that are high in protein, complex carbs and fiber. I am hoping to find some awesome recipes on here and maybe share a few with everyone as well. Thanks for reading about me & have a great day!
