FOODIE FRIDAY CREAMY CHICKEN ALFREDO



Welcome to my first Foodie Friday. Today I would like to share one of my 15 year old daughters favorite dinners. CREAMY CHICKEN ALFREDO


Be sure to stop by Designs by Gollum hosted by the sweet Michael for a virtual feast and a lot of inspiration!

INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
6boneless, skinless
chicken-breast
halves(about 4
ounces each)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons plus
1 teaspoon olive oil
divided
3 cloves garlic, minced
1tablespoon minced
onion
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon pepper
makes 6 servings




Preheat oven to 375F Place flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle chicken with salt; coat with flour. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until hot.




Add chicken; cook, turning once, until golden,2-4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet; place in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.









Heat remaining olive oil in same skillet over medium heat until hot. Add garlic and onion; cook until garlic is fragrant and onion is tender, 1-2 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high add whipping cream, Parmesan and pepper. Cook until sauce is bubbly and slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes.










Spoon sauce over chicken in the dish.




Bake chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted in chicken registers 180 f, 8-12 minutes.




It is very important to use whipping cream instead of milk because the fat content helps keep the sauce from separating and gives it a rich flavor.





I like to serve with noodles and vegetables!! ENJOY

  1. This looks really yummy. What is the bean salad part on the plate? Just regular beans or is there a special recipe to go with it. I love beans.
