Talk about temptation! Who could resist the creamy flavor combo of chicken baked in an Alfredo sauce?

What You'll Need

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 ½ to 2 pounds total)
  • 6 slices (6 ounces) mozzarella cheese (see Note)
  • 2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place eggs in a shallow dish. Place bread crumbs in another shallow dish. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.
  3. Meanwhile, dip chicken breasts in eggs then in bread crumbs, coating completely. Place chicken in hot oil and cook 6 to 8 minutes, or until lightly browned, turning halfway through cooking. Remove chicken breasts to prepared baking dish and top each breast with a slice of mozzarella cheese.
  4. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine cream, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until mixture has thickened. Pour over chicken.
  5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and cheese is light golden.

What a fun restaurant-style recipe!

Easier recipe would be to use a package of Lipton's Noodle Alfredo Sauce and a jar of Bertolli Alfredo Sauce. Prepare Lipton's Noodle Alfredo Sauce according to the package. Add contents of Bertolli to Lipton's Noodle Alfredo Sauce after it is cooked. Once the chicken is fully baked, place chicken over paper towels to remove any excess grease.

I tried this last night and thought it turned out great. Cut the recipe in half for the two of us.

Could you make it work with milk and how would you adjust for that? Not that I'm counting calories, but we're just not in the habit of having cream on hand.

Yes, you can make it work with milk. Just whisk in 1 Tbl. of flour with the milk and heat for 2 minutes. Then, add the remaining ingredients. Enjoy!

Heavy Cream Substitute 3/4 cup milk 1/3 cup butter 1. Melt the butter. 2. Pour it into the milk, and stir. 3. Use in place of one cup of heavy cream. Tip If you use low-fat milk, add a tablespoon of flour to the mixture to thicken.

Made this for visiting family and it was wonderful

I can't wait to try this....Chicken Alfredo is one of our faviorite dinners to make.Me and my husband fight over who cooks it of

Made this tonight for our kids when they came over for dinner. The chicken was so moist, the sauce over the top with flavor. Our son couldn't hug me enough for the wonderful meal. I served it with corn, garlic bread, and tortellinis. I used the extra alfredo sauce for the tortelinis. This will be something I will be making often.

which parm. cheese?? Jar or freshly grated?

Use either one, but know that jarred grated Parmesan is a VERY pale shadow of freshly grated Parmesan! Those round green cans of parmesan are to be avoided like the plague, IMHO. And for a real burst of authentic flavor, find some good Parmesano Reggiano and grate that!

Made this for dinner, decided to play around and used provolone cheese & shredded a brick of reggiano ( spelling right?) cheese, after I pulled it out of the oven I chopped up some fresh basil ( my plants are growing like crazy crazy) & spinich. Has anyone tried it with theighs? Hubby & my picky 3 yr old ate it up lol ty Mr Food & team for yet another great recipe making look like I can cook.

excellent receipt can't wait to try it. Sounds so good. May not be good for my diebetes however.

Yes, making a meal from scratch is great but when time permits alittle bit of help from a jar of alfredo sauce can help.

I, myself, will probably buy the jar of alfredo sauce. Although a little pricey, it is very good and leaves time for laundry and homework. 'Can't wait to try this!

What's the fun in that? I cook because I like to, not for the ease. Homemade is always better tasting than something from a jar/can!

could you just use a jar of alfredo sauce that you buy and add the parm?

Of course you could! Any recipe is just a guidelineDo with it what you want.

why is your name Chef then.... if you just want to use a jar of alfredo sauce instead of making your own ??????? I hate when people post cant you just use this or that. The whole purpose of getting recipes is to try them and make them yourself.

Sure you could. We have not tried it that way in the Test Kitchen, so we can not guarantee the results. Enjoy!

I've tried several brands of jarred alfredo sauce and all of them tasted so artificial.

You will be surprised at how quick and easy, and delicious it is to make your own Alfredo!
