  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ¾ tsp Paprika
  • 2 TBS Butter
  • 3 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 C Low Sodium Chicken Broth
  • ¼ tsp Oregano
  • ½ tsp Parsley
  • ¼ C Heavy Cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. In a small dish, mix together the Black Pepper, Garlic Powder and Paprika. Sprinkle your desired amount of mixture over both sides of the chicken. (I had some leftover but I used about 1 teaspoon per chicken breast.)
  3. In your oven-safe skillet, melt the butter on medium-low heat on the stove top. Once the butter is melted, add the seasoned chicken breasts to the pan and cook each side for about 5 minutes per side.
  4. Once both sides of the chicken breasts have been seared, remove the chicken breasts from the pan to set on a plate and return the skillet to medium low heat.
  5. In the heated skillet, sauté minced garlic in the chicken juices until fragrant (about 1-2 minutes) while scraping to loosen the chicken crumbs/drippings. Add the Chicken Broth, Oregano and Parsley to the pan and simmer on medium low heat for about 4 minutes then stir the Heavy Cream into the mixture for 2 minutes.
  6. Return the chicken in the skillet over the sauce and bake the chicken in the sauce for 25-35 minutes.
  7. Serve with veggies or your choice of side and enjoy!
