Special Equipment


Basil Cream Sauce

  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup (1oz) shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 2-ounce jar diced pimientos drained
  • 2 tablespoons loosely packed chopped fresh basil OR 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Serve Over

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked cauliflower rice


  • Cut your chicken breast in half horizontally by placing one hand on top of the breast and slicing the top and bottom into two thin, even pieces. Sprinkle both sides of each piece with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Grease with cooking spray or a drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add chicken and cook for 4-6 minutes per side (longer for very large breasts), until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meat reads 165°F.
  • Transfer chicken to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
  • Return pan to stove and add chicken broth and cream. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute. Turn heat down to low and add cheese, drained pimientos, basil, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Slice chicken breast and serve over cauliflower rice. Top with cream sauce and enjoy!


*If you don't have Italian seasoning, lightly sprinkle chicken with equal parts basil and oregano.
