Creamy garlic parmesan chicken is a simple combination of seasoning, buttermilk, and an an incredibly delicious sauce. The entire recipe can be made up in 30 minutes or so. It makes a great midweek meal or snack. I have even served it up at parties. I have had Parmesan chicken before but never with a twist like this. The only thing to be said is that it’s out of this world.
Easy Creamy Garlic Parmesan Chicken
You know what it's like when you come home hungry during the week and just don't know what to have for dinner. You have to peek in the fridge and see what you have and match it to what you want. Well, that's exactly how I came up with this recipe. Sometimes that's how the best recipes are born.
Combine the chicken and buttermilk in a bowl.
Add the salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, chilli powder, and hot pepper flakes to a separate bowl. Mix until well combined.
Add one half of the mixed seasoning the the buttermilk and chicken. Stir until well combined. Set aside.
Add the flour and remaining seasoning to another bowl.
Dredge each piece of chicken in the flour until completely covered. Shake off any excess flour and place on a wire rack.
Pour the oil into a pan and heat to approximately 350 degrees F or 180 C. If you don't have a thermometer, drop a bit of flour in and if it sizzles and bubbles, you know it's ready.
Fry the chicken, in batches, until it's golden brown.
To make the sauce, add the butter to a pan over medium heat and allow it to melt down. Place the garlic in and saute it for a couple of minutes. Add in the mayo, parmesan, and parsley. Stir and cook for a couple of minutes.
Place the chicken into a bowl, drizzle the sauce over it, and toss.
Serve and enjoy your creamy garlic parmesan chicken.

I use boneless skinless chicken breasts, but you can use the cut of your choice. I just find the breasts are easier and healthier.
If you have fresh grated Parmesan it makes a great alternative to the powdered.
As always, adjust the seasoning according to your liking.
