Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Coat chicken with flour. Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken; cook 5 to 6 min. on each side or until done (170°F). Remove chicken from skillet, reserving drippings in skillet. Cover chicken to keep warm.
  • Add broth to skillet; stir to scrape up browned bits from bottom of skillet. Add cream cheese product; cook 2 to 3 min. or until cream cheese is melted and sauce is slightly thickened, stirring constantly with whisk.
  • Return chicken to skillet; turn to evenly coat both sides of each breast with sauce. Cook 2 min. or until chicken is heated through. Sprinkle with parsley.


Substitute 4 bone-in pork chops (1-1/2 lb./675 g) for the chicken.

Special Extra

Stir 2 Tbsp. Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese or 2 tsp. Heinz Dijon Mustard into cream cheese sauce before the final 2-min. simmer time.


A skillet with sloping sides is best for this recipe because you have more room to turn the chicken breasts over and it also aids evaporation which in turn speeds browning.
