Chicken breasts with garlic and parsley

Chicken with butter, garlic and parsley
I’m a big fan of red meat, but chicken is not far behind. This recipes brings out the best of the chicken breasts, and the recipe is simple enough you can make it for any meal, without much planning. As everyone should have flour, butter and garlic, you really only need chicken breasts and fresh parsley!

Ingredients for the chicken breasts

– 2 organic chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (about 8 oz each), cut into 1 inch cubes
– 2 tbsp flour
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
– 2 tbsp olive oil
– 1 tbsp finely chopped garlic (2 large cloves)
– 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
– 2 tbsp unsalted butter (at room temperature, or microwave for 10s to soften)


– rinse the chicken breasts under cold running water, then dry with paper towels
– place flour, salt and pepper onto a plate, mix
– coat the chicken with the flour, salt and pepper
– mix in the garlic and parsley with the butter
– heat the olive oil in a large frying pan till very hot (but not smoking!)
– sauté the chicken for 4 minutes, turning every often
– add the butter and garlic and parsley mixture
– sauté for 1 more minute
– serve immediately with some vegetable or rice (or both!)
