This creamy chicken breasts recipe is great for when you are in haste and you do not have time to prepare a complicated dish. All the same, you get to enjoy some tender, juicy, mouth-watering, and sauce-rich chicken.

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

Cooking Time: 35 Minutes

Servings: 4-6

Ingredients

  • 4-5 Chicken Breasts, with the skin on
  • 25g Butter
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2-3 Diced Shallots
  • 2 Cloves Crushed Garlic
  • ¼ Cup White Wine
  • 1½ Cups Chicken Stock
  • ¾ Cup Cream
  • ¼ Cup Fresh Herbs (Rosemary, Thyme, and Sage, chopped)
  • Himalayan Salt to Season
  • Black Pepper to Season

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 210 degrees Celsius
  2. Use paper towels to pat the chicken breasts dry and season both sides with pepper and salt.
  3. Heat a large frying pot over high heat and add a tbsp. of oil when it gets very hot. Place the chicken in the hot pot, one at a time and the skin-side down. Let it fry for a few minutes until the skin is very crispy and golden brown.
  4. Turn over the other side over and let it fry for a while until it also browns.
  5. Line your roasting tray and place your chicken chunks on. Let it bake for ten to fifteen minutes depending on the size of the chicken breasts.
  6. When the chicken is still in the oven, use paper towels to tip the excess oil from the pan. Turn the heat to low then add oil and butter. Add the garlic and shallots and let it cook for ten minutes, being sure to stir continuously. You want your chicken to be soft and golden, and not dark and crispy.
  7. Remove them from the oven and loosely cover with foil. Let it sit for about ten minutes before serving. It is important to let the chicken rest before resting so that all its juiciness is completely absorbed.
  8. Add the white wine to the pan. Turn the heat up and let it bubble for about 30 seconds for the alcohol to cook off. Add the herbs and stock and let it simmer until the liquid reduces by approximately two-thirds. This could take five to ten minutes depending on the amount of heat supplied.
  9. Add the cream and let it simmer until the sauce has formed a lovely, thick consistency and turned dark brown. Be sure to add the juices from the roasting tray once the chicken has rested. Season with pepper and salt to taste.
  10. Slice the chicken breasts, garnish with some fresh herbs, and serve.
