Cheesy Blushed Chicken

Happy Saturday!  We got a little more snow.  I don't care how much "little" it is, I don''t want anymore!  I want about 70 degrees and sunny.  Oh my gosh, THAT is what I want!

I hope this finds you all doing well.  Everyone eating well?  I hope so and I hope this recipe will have you eating even better in the very near future!

My husband has decided in the last few years, he doesn't love red sauce anymore.  Once in awhile, but not on the regular.  I, on the other hand, could eat it daily.  He loves a good blush sauce so I decided to go this direction and holy moly was it a hit!  He has asked for it twice in one week.  All that means is next time I make a double batch for lots of leftovers AND a freezer meal too!  This recipe will get you dinner on the table in about 20-30 minutes.  You can buy chicken cutlets (thin cuts) or just cut regular boneless skinless breasts in half width wise so you get 2 thin cutlets from each piece.  My recipe will call for 3-4 boneless chicken breasts, that is a full thickness as I cut my own.

Let's get to the recipe shall we??  I made a video on this recipe as well so I will link it.  Don't forget to hit SUBSCRIBE on my YouTube Channel!

You will need:

3-4 bonless skinless chicken breasts cut into 5-8 cutlets
Olive oil
slat and pepper
23 oz jar of pasta sauce or 3-4 cups of your own homemade
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Fresh Basil or Parsley

In a high sided skillet drizzle soe olive oil and turn on heat.  When the skillet has heated up place your well salt and peppered chicken in and brown each side.  No need to cook all the way through at this point.  Brown up all sides of all pieces and remove from the pan.

Pour in your marinara, heavy cream, and grated parm.  Stir to combine.  Place chicken back into your sauce and cover.  Simmer for 10-15 minutes until chicken is completely cooked through.

Serve over a pasta or your choice or rice and don't forget to sprinkle with basil or parsley!

Enjoy this easy, DELISH meal on a weeknight or to enterain your friends!
