  • Pound the chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap or parchment paper until about 1⁄2-inch thickness.
  • In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mixture on both sides, evenly coating them. Shake off any excess flour.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Cook chicken breasts for 4-5 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Melt the butter in the pan. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.
  • Pour in the white wine (if using) and scrape up any browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Let cook 1 minute.
  • Whisk in the chicken broth, then pour in the heavy cream. Bring mixture to a gentle simmer.
  • Add in the Parmesan cheese and whisk vigorously until the cheese has fully melted into the sauce.
  • Add the cooked chicken breasts back into the pan and turn to coat both sides in the creamy Parmesan sauce.
  • When chicken is fully heated through, remove pan from heat.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley before serving. Enjoy over rice, pasta or mashed potatoes!
