Creamy Chicken and Herb Skillet

If you don’t have dinner plans for tomorrow I suggest you make this Creamy Chicken and Herb Skillet.
It is crazy easy and it tastes like a dream! Plus it takes all of 15 minutes!

The crispy chicken and the creamy flavourful sauce is perfection.

What you need,

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and pounded thin
Salt and Pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 large shallot, minced
5 oz. herb and garlic Boursin Cheese
½ cup chicken broth
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. fresh chopped basil

In a large non-stick skillet heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat.
Season both sides of the pounded chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the cooked chicken to a plate and set aside.

Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the pan and reduce to medium heat. Cook the shallot for 1 minute or so until just starting to soften.
Add the broth, cheese and lemon juice. Stir until thick and creamy.
Stir in the chopped basil.
Season the sauce with additional salt and pepper if needed.

Spoon the sauce over the cooked chicken and serve.

Both my in house taste tester and I loved this dish.
The sauce would be great on pasta too!
