  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts 2 large chicken breasts OR 4 cutlets
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ½ cup heavy cream aka heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper ground
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh Rosemary chopped


To Make the Chicken

  • If you have two large chicken breasts, slice each one in in half horizontally in order to make four cutlets total.
  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the olive oil. Let the olive oil heat up, then add the chicken to the pan.
  • Cook the chicken for four minutes without moving it around in the pan. Then flip each piece and cook it for another four minutes. Set aside on a clean plate.

To Make the Creamy Rosemary Sauce

  • In the same pan, add all remaining ingredients (butter, cream, broth, garlic, black pepper, and rosemary) and stir to combine, making sure to break up any bits and pieces left in the pan from cooking the chicken to combine those into the sauce as well.
  • Stirring occasionally, let the sauce simmer and reduce for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan and ladle the sauce over it. Allow it to warm in the simmering sauce for 1 min.
  • Remove the pan with the chicken and creamy rosemary sauce from the heat and serve over pasta, rice, zoodles, or cauliflower rice! Optional: Top with a few sprigs of fresh rosemary for garnish.
