Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 40 minutes



  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.

  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook until browned on both sides, about 5-6 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add sliced onions and minced garlic. Cook until onions are translucent and garlic is fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.

  4. Add chicken broth and scrape the bottom of the skillet to release any browned bits. Bring the mixture to a simmer.

  5. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet. Cover and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

  6. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside. Increase the heat to medium-high and let the sauce simmer until it thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.

  7. Reduce the heat to low and pour in the heavy cream. Stir well to combine and let the sauce simmer for another 5 minutes.

  8. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and spoon the sauce over them. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the chicken is heated through and the sauce is thickened.

  9. Serve the smothered chicken breasts hot, spooning extra sauce over each serving.
