Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Coat chicken with flour. Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken; cook 5 to 6 min. on each side or until done (165°F). Remove chicken from skillet, reserving drippings in skillet. Cover chicken to keep warm.
  • Add broth to skillet; stir to scrape up browned bits from bottom of skillet. Add cream cheese; cook 2 to 3 min. or until cream cheese is melted and sauce starts to thicken, stirring constantly with whisk.
  • Return chicken to skillet; turn to coat both sides of each breast with sauce. Cook 2 min. or until chicken is heated through. Sprinkle with parsley.

Note

If possible, use a large skillet with sloping sides when preparing this recipe. Not only does this allow you to easily turn the chicken pieces but the larger surface area speeds up the evaporation of the cooking liquids which, in turn, allows the chicken to brown more quickly.

Special Extra

Stir 2 Tbsp. KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese or 2 tsp. GREY POUPON Dijon Mustard into cream cheese sauce before the final 2-min. simmer time.

Variations

Prepare recipe as directed. Transfer chicken to serving platter, then top with one of the following options: Spinach-Bacon: Top chicken with 1 cup baby spinach leaves. Drizzle with sauce; sprinkle with 2 slices cooked and crumbled OSCAR MAYER Bacon. Tomato-Basil: Top chicken with 1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with sauce; sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil.

I recently made this and everyone was telling me that I'm a cooking genius for the creative recipes I always come up with (thanks kraft :D). My fiance demanded that I go and give it a great rating, so here I am. This is such a rich, flavorful, wonderful recipe. It's been a hit with everyone I've made it for, and it's SO easy. It's practically impossible to mess up. I accidentally cooked my chicken for a bit longer than I was supposed to once, and everyone still complimented it on being wonderfully crispy and flavorful (and I actually liked it crispier). I'm even planning on making it for Thanksgiving this year. Wonderful, easy, delicious recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I tried this right after I got it, and it was so GOOD, I've already made it again! I tried this right after I got it, and it was so GOOD, I've already made it again! I paired it with angel hair pasta. That and the fresh tomatoes from my garden made it absolutely irresistable! The second time, I wasn't cooking chicken, and it turned out great just using the bouillon and tossing a little bit of flour into the oil. Both times, I had a "spreadable cheese" from Wisconsin that just happened to be Neufchatel with garlic, chives, onions, parsley, etc. flavoring it. It was absolutely fantastic! This recipe is definitely a keeper.

I made the pan sauce with 2 teaspoons of dijon like the video suggests and it gave it a nice flavor. I can see lots of possibilities for additional spices for the sauce as well, such as some garlic or chipotle for a little extra kick! I think for those who thought it was bland should at least try it with the dijon or add more spices, anything you think you would like with cream cheese ... chives, onion salt, cracked pepper ... and see if you can make it your own!

Very good and soooo easy - my husband loved it and even said to save the recipe (he usually does the cooking). I added the tomatoes but didn't have fresh basil or spinach available. I was worried about the lack of spices as well but it really didn't need it. We always cook with extra virgin olive oil instead of regular vegetable/canola oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband told me that it tasted like something he would have eaten at Olive Garden. My husband told me that it tasted like something he would have eaten at Olive Garden. I did make two alterations, first I added one clove of garlic that I minced when I added the cream cheese. Also, I put the tomatoes in the sauce for the last minute of cooking, to help add that additional flavor into the sauce. I served it with mashed potatoes, but it would be equally good with any type of pasta noodles or even roasted red potatoes. I can't wait to make it again!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As its written, the recipe is nothing to jump about. As its written, the recipe is nothing to jump about. However, if you add some dijon mustard and cracked black peppercorns to the sauce, you will have something wonderful on your hands. Everyone thought that I labored all day making this awesome sauce. A wonderful recipe. I suggest you think of the recipe as more of a guide than an actual recipe. I will be making this recipe again. I may even decide to make this sauce on something other than chicken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I added a little salt to the flour before rolling the chicken in it.. I added a little salt to the flour before rolling the chicken in it.. also afer frying the chicken and returning it to the pan after adding the cream cheese, I added a handful of fresh spinach to the pan sauce...let it cook down, then add a dollop of fresh salsa on top of each chicken breast...let it heat a little, then spoon the sause over the salsa..a few times, then let cook another 2 or 3 minutes...this was wonderful!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Awesome!! I used fresh cherry tomatoes and parsley (I don't like basil), but used chicken tenders instead of the breasts and just doubled the amount of flour and it was wonderful! Of course, you have to season the chicken w/ a little garlic, salt & pepper or it would be bland...and the seasonings get absorbed into the sauce. The tomatoes seem to make it, they are a must. Will definitely add to my regular recipe rotation!
