“Holy crap, Anna!”

This is what my mom said to me after I made this Garlic Butter Chicken recipe (courtesy of Don’t Go Bacon My Heart).

The rest of the fam was quite pleased as well.

Suggestion: This dish goes very well with French or Italian bread for dipping in the garlic-buttery sauce.



  • 2x 9oz/250g Chicken Breasts, brought close to room temp

  • 1/4 cup / 40g Plain / All Purpose Flour

  • 1/2 cup / 120ml Chicken Stock

  • 6 tbsp / 90g / 3.2oz Unsalted Butter, divided into tbsp chunks

  • 2 cloves of Garlic, minced/finely diced

  • 1 tbsp finely diced Fresh Parsley

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder

  • 1 tsp Salt, plus more to taste

  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper, plus more to taste

  • 1 Lemon, divided into 4 wedges (to serve)


  1. In a shallow dish, combine 1/4 cup flour with 1 tsp garlic powder & salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper.

  2. Butterfly your chicken breasts right through the center to make 4 even sized breasts. One by one dredge in the flour (press in the flour to get an even coverage), give them a shake then place to one side.

  3. Add 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp olive oil to a large pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add in the chicken breasts and fry until golden on each side and white/piping hot through the center. Approx 3-5 min. each side depending on thickness. Place to one side.

  4. Turn heat down to a medium and add garlic. Fry for 1-2 min. until it just begins to brown, then pour in stock. Use your wooden spoon to scrape off any flavor stuck to the pan, then add in your remaining 5 tbsp butter. Swiftly whisk as it melts to bind with the stock, it should turn slightly cloudy. Sprinkle in parsley and season to taste with salt & black pepper.

  5. Allow to simmer for a few mins to thicken, then turn down heat to low and add back in chicken. Spoon over the sauce then serve up with extra sauce drizzled over and a squeeze of lemon juice to taste (optional).
