TIPS AND TRICKS
- CHICKEN: I kept the chicken breasts whole but you can cut them into cutlets for more servings and less cooking time.
- SUN DRIED TOMATOES: If you want a little more flavor, add a little bit of the oil form the tomatoes into the dish. Yum!
- PARMESAN CHEESE: If you already have a bag of Parmesan cheese, use it. For more flavor, buy a block of Parmesan cheese and grate your own. The flavor will go up a notch.
- COOKING TIME: Serve immediately as soon as the internal temperature is at 165F. If you need a minute before you serve the chicken, place the chicken into a baking pan, in a 300 degree oven until your ready.
- LEFTOVERS: Store the leftover chicken, if you have any, in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days. You can reheat the chicken in the microwave.

Brown the chicken (do not overcrowd and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer onto a plate, cover, and set aside. If you are worried that it's not done, but you don't want the skin to burn, place them in a 300 degree oven in a oven safe pan.
Saute the garlic for a minute or until it's fragrant. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the garlic and mix well. Add the chicken stock, and deglaze the pan scraping any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
Adjust the heat to medium-low, and add the heavy cream and the parmesan cheese to the skillet. Allow the sauce to simmer for a couple of minutes, then season with pepper flakes.
