This Creamy Tomato Italian Parmesan Chicken is a creamy red tomato parmesan sauce with delicious italian spices. The chicken gets smothered in melty parmesan cheese and will be one of the most delicious meals you eat!
2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
4 chicken breasts*
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup heavy cream
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon McCormick Italian Seasoning Herb Grinder, plus more for garnish or 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
In a large skillet add 1 Tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper the chicken. Cook the chicken on medium high heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until brown on each side and cooked until no longer pink in center. Remove chicken and set aside on a plate.
Add 1 Tablespoon olive oil to the skillet and add the onion and garlic. Sauté for a couple of minutes until tender. Add the tomato sauce, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, and italian seasoning. Salt and pepper to taste.
Bring to a simmer and add the chicken back to the skillet. Top with shredded parmesan cheese. Serve over pasta of desired.
I like using thin chicken breasts so they cook quickly and evenly.
