  • ¾ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

HOW TO MAKE THIS CREAMY GARLIC PARMESAN CHICKEN RECIPE

STEP ONE: In a small mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, garlic paste, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese until they are fully combined.

PRO TIP: Need garlic paste? You can make your own! Use 1 pound of peeled garlic cloves and combine with 2 tablespoons of any neutral-flavored oil. Blend in a blender and pulse until it’s smooth.

STEP TWO: Place the chicken breasts in a 9 x 13 glass casserole baking dish.

PRO TIP: Cut the chicken into fillets. This will help the overall taste, tenderness, and cook time!

STEP THREE: Sprinkle the chicken with black pepper and garlic salt or any seasonings you desire.

STEP FOUR: Pat the cream cheese mixture over the chicken breasts until they are fully coated.

STEP FIVE: Bake the chicken for 40 to 45 minutes at 375 degrees or until it’s cooked all the way through and the cheese coating is browned and bubbly.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Store chicken in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

IN THE FREEZER: Unfortunately, because the sauce is dairy-based it’s not going to freeze very well. We recommend eating this yummy cream sauce as soon as possible!

But if you still have some leftover, these flavors will melt together and become delicious leftovers you’ll be scrambling to eat up tomorrow.

    I make something very similar to this. I generally make small slits in the chicken before putting the cheeses on top. That way some of that great flavor gets inside of the chicken. Gotta try this version very soon!!
