For a simple recipe this really packs a lot of flavor! This is easy and good, and looks quite elegant! I copied this recipe from a magazine advertisement for cream cheese.
You can fiddle with the recipe to suit your taste - I sometimes alter the amounts of broth or cheese for a different consistancy or flavor intensity. For kids, just leave off the green onions - all ages enjoy this! Easy to double or triple!

How to Make Chicken Breasts with Cream Cheese Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix salt and pepper to taste with flour. Cut chicken breasts into serving size pieces; dip in beaten egg, then coat well with flour mixture.
  2. Brown chicken breasts in oil til golden and cooked through. It will just take a few minutes; don't overcook or it will become dry. Remove from pan.
  3. Pour chicken broth into pan; stir, scraping up chicken drippings. Meanwhile, heat cream cheese in microwave until very soft, 15 - 20 seconds. Add to chicken broth. Stir over medium heat until cream cheese dissolves into broth - don't worry if it does not become perfectly smooth, it will still taste good!
  4. Add chicken back to pan, turning over to coat all sides with sauce. Heat for a few additional minutes, until all is heated through.
  5. Remove chicken to serving platter or individual plates, top with sauce and sprinkle with chopped green onions (or parsley). Serve with pasta or rice to soak up the tasty sauce!
