Had enough of boring chicken breast dinners? You’re going to love this post. It’s a collection of six of my favorite easy sauces that will transform any chicken dish into an incredibly delicious meal.
Chicken breasts are fantastic for dinner in a pinch. They take just three minutes to cook on each side. Then whip up these quick and easy sauces in the same pan. Dinner is ready, and there is no pile of dishes to clean up since everything is made in one pan.
Read on for the recipes to each of these amazing easy sauces for chicken dinners.
How To Cook Chicken Breast In A Pan
Before you prepare the sauces, you’ll need to cook your chicken. The main thing that we want to avoid when cooking chicken is ending up with a dry, bland meal.
I find that thick pieces of chicken can be a bit on the tasteless side, so when I prepare the chicken, I like to cut the skinless boneless chicken breasts in half horizontally. That way you’ll end up with thinner chicken cutlets.
Season the cutlets with salt and pepper and cook in 2 tablespoons of butter for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Cooking the chicken in butter guarantees that it will be moist and juicy. If you prefer, you can substitute extra virgin olive oil or even avocado oil.
Next it’s time for the sauce! Remove the chicken from the pan and choose one of these sauces to cook in the chicken’s juices.
Pro tip and recipe notes
These recipes all make thin pan sauces. If you would like any of them a little thicker, just whisk a tablespoon of gluten free flour in some cold water first (this is called slurry). Then whisk the slurry into your hot pan sauce. Stir until thickened, and you’re good to go.
Chicken makes for a protein packed meal. Served with one of these wonderful sauces, it’s a tasty and super-quick meal too. I like to call these dinners gourmet-in-a-flash. 😊 Enjoy! Have a happy and healthy week!
