  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Season chicken with Italian seasoning, salt & pepper. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium – high heat.

  3. To make the garlic parmesan cream sauce: Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add italian seasoning and flour. Whisk lightly browned, about 1 minute. Whisk in chicken broth until fully incorporated with flour. Gradually whisk in heavy cream and Parmesan until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Return chicken into the skillet, on-top of the parmesan cream sauce. Bake in pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and skin is crispy. Garnish with fresh herbs or parmesan cheese. Serve with rice, veggies, or a salad. Enjoy!
