How Do I Make a Creamy Herb Sauce For Chicken?

  1. Prepare the chicken by seasoning both sides of the breasts with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.
  2. Dredge with flour and remove the excess. Heat a large skillet over high heat, add the olive oil and brown the chicken breasts for 4 minutes on each side or until fully cooked. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  3. Make the sauce: pour the chicken broth into the same skillet and add the herbs and spices. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the skillet to remove all the bits and pieces stuck to it. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer.
  4. Stir in the cream of chicken soup until dissolved and add the sour cream and lemon juice.
  5. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet, cover them with the sauce and simmer until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Serve with freshly chopped parsley on top.
