  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 tablespoon fresh thyme)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
  1. Season the chicken breasts generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
  4. Pour in the chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Allow the broth to simmer for 2-3 minutes to reduce slightly.
  5. Stir in the heavy cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, and thyme. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for 5 minutes, until the sauce thickens.
  6. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet, spooning the sauce over the top. Let the chicken simmer in the sauce for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat through.
  7. Remove from heat and garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
  8. Serve the Creamy Lemon Garlic Chicken hot, alongside your favorite side dishes like mashed potatoes, rice, or roasted vegetables.
