Chicken with Butter Cream Sauce

Chicken with Butter Cream Sauce

I made this dish for the first time recently and was pleasantly surprised with how quick and easy it was. I really think what took me the most time was crushing the Ritz crackers! I don’t have a food processor so it was was just me, a zip lock bag and a rolling pin! Even so, this dish and it’s side, took less than 30 minutes from start to finish and I hope you like it!

What you’ll need:

  • 1lb of chicken tenders **
  • 1 sleeve of Ritz crackers (or breadcrumbs if those are on hand, but Ritz work better!)
  • Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup of half and half, plus 2 tbsp set aside
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • salt and pepper
  1. Grind crackers into crumbs either by hand or using a food processor.
  2. Cover each piece of chicken with crumbs (cover well!) and set aside.
  3. Add about 3 tbsp of olive oil to a large pan and cook half of the cracker crumb coated chicken for about  4-5 minutes per side or until cooked all the way through and golden brown on medium high heat. Set cooked pieces aside and cook second half of chicken strips.
  4. Once chicken is cooked, add butter to still hot pan. Allow butter to melt and add chicken broth to mixture. 
  5. Whisk in cup of half and half, as well as spices and bring to a boil.
  6. While mixture is heating, mix the 2 tbsp of half and half with cornstarch until smooth.
  7. Once boiling, add cornstarch mixture and allow sauce to boil until it thickens. Remove from heat.
  8. Cover desired amount of chicken in butter sauce and enjoy!

I served this dish with some oven roasted asparagus and it was fantastic! While my chicken was cooking I tossed some asparagus with olive oil, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese and put it in the oven at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Dinner and sides in under 30 minutes!
