  • 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

Step 1

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.
