The Italian Cooking Cream was one of the main elements in this recipe. I even have heard from many, a lot of you who’ve been dissatisfied at no longer being able to locate this blessed cooking cream everywhere and haven’t been capable of make this recipe for a while. So sorry approximately that! You in no way recognize while a brand goes to up and flee the marketplace, yes?

Anyhow, I were operating on this recipe and feature tweaked it so you now not need to buy the cooking cream (you couldn’t even if you wanted to, dang it!). I actually have adjusted the recipe, the usage of ordinary cream cheese and some fundamental pantry staples to season it. The end result it terrific and really similar to my unique recipe. In fact, if you need to make it without making the crispy hen to go along with it…you may. It’s that true.

Step 1

In a small food processor crush the corn flakes into crumbs.

Step 2

Add the 1/2 t salt to the 3/4 C flour. Stir to combine. Place the flour, milk and crushed cornflakes each into their own separate pan. Loaf pans work well for this. If you don’t have three loaf pans, do not dismay. You could use pie tins, or round cake pans…what ever works for you.

Step 3

Place your chicken breasts in a gallon sized Ziploc bag and seal the top. Pound the chicken flat with a meat mallet. You will really be thankful for the Ziploc bag in this step. Who wants a bunch of chicken guts flying around their kitchen? Not me…that’s who.

Step 4

Take a pair of sharp kitchen scissors and cut each breast in half.

Step 5

Dredge the chicken in the flour. Be sure it gets covered on both sides. Lay the floured chicken onto a small cookie sheet and slide the sheet into the freezer. Let it hang out there for about 5 minutes.

Step 6

Start cooking your pasta.

Step 7

Remove the chicken from the freezer and dredge each piece in the milk and then immediately into the corn flake crumbs. Again, be sure both sides are covered well.

Step 8

Add the olive oil to a hot skillet. Carefully lay each chicken piece into the hot oil. Sprinkle with a little bit of salt and pepper. Cook over medium high heat for about 5 minutes or until the underside of each piece is nice and golden brown. Turn the pieces over. If the bottom of the pan is dry add just a bit more olive oil to the side of the pan. Swirl the pan around a bit to let the oil flow to all sides. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Let the chicken cook for about 7 more minutes, being careful not to burn the bottoms. When your chicken has been cooked through remove it from the pan and place it on a plate. Cover with tin foil.

Step 9

Into the same pan pour your broth: Philly Cooking Creme, Cream of Chicken, and milk. Whisk the sauce around and let it get all warm and bubbly. Should only take about 3 minutes.

Step 10

Slice your chicken into strips and serve over your cooked pasta and sauce. Garnish with chopped parsley if you choose.
