World's Best Creamy Garlic Herb Chicken #chicken #chickenrecipes

Pan-seared chicken breasts prepared with a creamy, garlicky herb sauce. Flavorful, quick weeknight dinner prepared in one pan and in 30 minutes!

One pan meals are my jam, as you know. When you add chicken breasts and cream sauce to the equation, we are well on our way to a new favorite recipe.

Simple, but delicious one pan meals are my absolute go-to during the week because the less the cleanup, the sooner the Netflix marathons can begin.

This Creamy Garlic Herb Chicken is packed with flavor, thanks to the garlic and herbs, and with a delicious side dish of, say, Garlicky Steamed Broccoli, you’re getting a full on meal in no time.
