There are a few tips to this recipe. I use fairly large chicken breasts and cut them in half. Try to make sure the breasts are thawed and at room temperature so they cook evenly.

I usually make a small slice in one of the biggest pieces just to ensure there are no pink areas. As with any recipe, you can alter the amount of onion, garlic, salt, and pepper according to your liking. We use heavy cream, but if you are diet conscious, you could probably get away withVideo:
