WHAT YOU NEED:
*4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
*2 tbsp. Olive Oil
*Salt & Pepper
(For the Sauce):
*1 cup of milk
*4 oz. cream cheese (this and the milk is what makes it healthier, many cream sauces use heavy cream instead)
*1 cup parmesan cheese
*2 cloves of garlic, minced
*1 tbsp. butter (I used margarine)
*1 can of mushroom pieces
WHAT YOU DO:
First, place chicken breasts in a ziploc bag and pound thin with the flat side of a meat tenderizer. Heat 2 tbsp. of olive oil in large skillet until nice and hot. Place chicken in skillet and brown about 5-6 minutes on each side with lid on. Making sure that the chicken is cooked completely throughout.
At the same time, place tablespoon of butter in saucepan with the garlic. Saute the garlic for about a minute, add mushrooms. Stir. Next, add milk, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and parsley. Stir until smooth. Sauce will be very thin. Allow to cook for about 8 minutes, stirring often! Sauce will thicken slightly but not much. Turn heat off and cover. Let stand for about 3-4 minutes. Sauce will thicken as it cools. Spoon over chicken and serve with mashed potatoes.
