Ingredients

  • 4 (16-ounces) boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Reduced Fat 4-Cheese Italian

  • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper; arrange chicken in a single layer in prepared baking dish and set aside.
  • Add butter to a skillet and melt over medium heat.
  • Stir in garlic and cook over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned, stirring very frequently. DO NOT burn the garlic.

Notes

*Though we're using an entire stick of butter for the sauce, we're only ingesting about 1/2-tablespoon of the butter per serving.
