Herb Crusted Chicken in a Basil Cream Sauce

I need to just start this off with saying NEW FAVORITE CHICKEN RECIPE.  This chicken was so delicious, there were 4 people for dinner and everyone said it was a dish you would get at olive garden, or a similar restaurant.  I loved the sauce because while it was creamy it was to thick or heavy where you felt really full.  I will be making this again without a doubt.  This was for 4 people like I said, you will have extra sauce but we served it over rice!  Got this recipe from this amazing blog Hope and John.


  • 4 chicken breasts (pounded to the same thickness)
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of Italian bread crumbs
  • 4 teaspoons of roasted garlic and pepper seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons of dried chives
  • 6 tablespoons of butter 

  • 6 garlic cloves (minced)
  •  1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1/2  of 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning 
  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3.5 tablespoons of dried basil
  • Rice or pasta to serve your chicken over

  1.  Place your bread crumbs, garlic seasoning and chives in a small bowl and mix together.
  2. Place  your milk in a separate  bowl.
  3. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat, continue to cook till melted.
  4. First dip your chicken in the milk, then dip in the bread crumb mixture (make sure chicken is completely coated.)
  5. Cook chicken in butter, about 5 minutes on each side.  Once 10 minutes is up cut the chicken to make sure chicken is cooked completely through.
  6. In the same skillet, add  your garlic and cook for 1 minute. 
  7. Add  your chicken broth and bring to a boil, make sure to get the browned pieces off the bottom of the skillet.
  8. Stir in your heavy whipping cream and tomatoes, and bring to a boil and stir for 1 minute.
  9. Reduce  the heat to low and add  your  cheese and basil, stir the sauce and cook unti thickened. (about 3-5 minutes)
  10. Serve by placing your rice or pasta on the plate.  Place your chicken on top of rice and pour your  sauce over the chicken
