Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS :
 
For The Chicken:
4 chicken breasts (pounded ½-inch thin)
2 teaspoons each of onion powder and garlic powder
salt and pepper, to season
1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
½ teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary*

For The Sauce:
4 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tablespoon minced garlic)
1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water, until smooth
½ teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary
1 cup milk (or half and half)*

INSTRUCTIONS :
  1. Coat chicken breasts with the onion and garlic powders and herbs. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken breasts until opaque and no longer pink inside (about 5 minutes each side, depending on thickness). Transfer to a plate; set aside.
  3. To the same pan or skillet, heat another 2 teaspoons of olive oil and sauté garlic, with parsley, thyme and rosemary, for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  4. Stir in milk (or cream); season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Bring to a boil; add the cornstarch mixture to the centre of the pan, quickly stirring, until sauce has thickened slightly. Reduce heat and simmer gently for a further minute to allow the sauce to thicken more.
  6. Return chicken to the skillet. Sprinkle with extra herbs if desired. Serve immediately.

NOTES
*If you don't like Thyme or Rosemary, substitute these with Basil and Oregano, or use Tarragon.
**For a dairy free option, I find Cashew milk the best in flavour. You can also use almond milk or rice milk.
Yes, heavy cream can be substituted!
