Garlic Butter Chicken


Healthier chicken breasts cooked in a simple delicious sauce. The chicken breasts turn out so tender, juicy, succulent, and flavorful.


PREP TIME: 5 minutes

COOK TIME: 15 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

YIELD: 5-6 servings


INGREDIENTS:

2 tablespoons Olive Oil

4 tablespoons Butter, divided

2 pounds Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (about 5 or 6 pieces)

4 teaspoons Paprika

1 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

8 cloves Garlic, crushed then minced

2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning

2 tablespoons Fresh Parsley or Fresh Basil, chopped - for garnish

2 tablespoons Water


INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Add olive oil and melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan/skillet over medium heat.

2. Add the chicken breasts, season with paprika, salt, and pepper.

3. Cook for 3 minutes on each side (season each side as you cook).

4. Make room for the garlic, melt the remaining butter, and add the garlic. Cook for 30 seconds or until the garlic becomes fragrant.

5. Season with Italian seasoning, and cook for one more minute.

6. Add 2 tablespoons of water to the pan to deglaze it, and scrape off any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan (that's where all of the good flavor is in this recipe).

7. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley or basil leaves, and serve warm. Enjoy!


**NOTES:


**Don't overcook the garlic. Garlic cooks very quickly (about 30-60 seconds), and burnt garlic tastes terrible so keep an eye on it as you cook.


**Don't overcook the chicken breasts, they cook so quickly and if they're overcooked they can turn out stingy, dry, and tough. They are ready when the internal temperature reaches 165° Fahrenheit (74° Celsius).


**To create a flavorful sauce, make sure to deglaze the pan with the water as that's where the flavor is in this recipe.
