  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces egg noodles
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Prepare the chicken: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 6-7 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Cook the noodles: In a pot of salted boiling water, cook the egg noodles according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the noodles and set aside.
  3. Make the butter sauce: In the same skillet used to cook the chicken, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant. Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Allow the sauce to reduce slightly, about 5 minutes.
  4. Combine the dish: Once the sauce has reduced, stir in the heavy cream and chopped parsley. Return the cooked noodles to the skillet and toss to coat them in the sauce. Slice the cooked chicken breasts and arrange them on top of the noodles.
  5. Serve: Garnish the dish with additional chopped parsley, if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
