Ingredients

  • 1/4

    cup Milk

  • 1/4

    cup dry bread crumbs

  • 1

    pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • 1/2

    cup chicken broth

  • 1

    cup heavy cream

  • 1

    (4 oz) can pimentos, sliced

  • 1/4

    cup fresh basil, minced

  • 1/2

    cup grated parmesan

  • 1/8

    teaspoon pepper

Directions

Place milk and bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Dip chicken in milk, and then coat with crumbs. In a skillet over medium high heat, add chicken with half of the butter. Cook about 5 min, then flip and add rest of the butter, until the chicken is cooked. Remove and keep warm. Deglaze with chicken broth and bring to a boil. Stir in cream and pimientos. Bring to a boil and stir for 1 minute. Reduce heat and add parmesan cheese, basil and pepper. Cook and stir until it reaches a saucy consistency. Serve chicken with sauce poured over.
