  • Season chicken cutlets with salt and pepper.
  • In a shallow mixing bowl, combine flour, sweet paprika, onion powder, dried thyme, and basil. Dredge the chicken cutlets in the flour mixture and shake off any excess.
  • Melt butter and heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the chicken cutlets to the hot skillet and cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from the skillet and transfer to a plate; keep covered.
  • Return the skillet to the burner, add a tablespoon of olive oil, and stir in the garlic; cook for 15 seconds or until fragrant.
  • Stir in the chicken broth and, using a wooden spoon, scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Cook for a minute.
  • Stir in the heavy cream, grated parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Decrease heat to medium-low and let sauce simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Add in the sundried tomatoes and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Return chicken cutlets to the skillet and let simmer for about 2 minutes, or until sauce is thickened and chicken is heated through.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Garnish with basil and serve.


  • Heavy Cream: Stick with heavy whipping cream for a thick, flavorful sauce. Half and half is okay, but avoid lighter options.
  • Parmesan: Freshly grated is best for optimal flavor.
  • Chicken: Thighs can replace cutlets, but they need a bit more cooking time.
  • Veggies: Boost nutrition by adding half a cup of peas, green beans, mushrooms, or spinach.
