This creamy tomato basil chicken recipe has tender chicken and plenty of garlic in a delicious fresh tomato and basil cream sauce.
Cut the chicken in half lengthwise so you have 4 thinner cutlets. Sprinkle them with the garlic powder and salt & pepper. Coat the chicken in flour.
Add the oil and butter to a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the chicken and cook it for about 4-5 min/side until the chicken is nice and golden. Remove the pan from the heat, and take the chicken out of the pan and set it aside.
Add the garlic, Dijon mustard, and chicken broth to the pan and return it to the heat. Let it bubble for about 30 seconds, while stirring to scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan and incorporate the mustard.
Add in the cream, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and basil. Once it starts to bubble, add the chicken back in and cook it for another 5 minutes or so (sauce will thicken up a bit and the chicken will cook through). You may need to reduce the heat if it's boiling too furiously. Season with extra salt & pepper as needed. You can serve this dish with some parmesan cheese grated over top if you wish.
