Prep time


Cooking time






  • For The Chicken
  • 2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts, halved horizontally to make 4 filets

  • 2 heaping tablespoons flour

  • 3 tablespoons finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon salt and cracked pepper

  • For The Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons butter (or sub with oil)

  • 8- ounces | 250 grams bacon, trimmed of fat and cut into strips (I use shortcut bacon in Australia)

  • 6 large cloves garlic, minced or finely chopped

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1/2 cup finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese

  • 1-1/2 cups half and half (or use reduced fat cream or evaporated milk)

  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch (corn flour) mixed with 2 teaspoons of water

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine the flour and parmesan cheese. Dredge seasoned chicken in the flour mixture. Shake off excess. Set aside.
  • In a large non stick pan or well-seasoned cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil and butter, until butter has melted and pan is hot. Fry the chicken until golden on each side, cooked through and no longer pink, for about 4-5 minutes per side( cooking time depends on the thickness of chicken). Transfer onto a warm plate.
  • In the pan, add the bacon strips and fry until crispy. Drain off some excess fat, keeping about 1 teaspoons worth in the pan. Add the onion and garlic and fry until onion is transparent (about 1 minute). Low the heat, and add the half and half (or cream). Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer; season with a little salt and pepper. Add in the parmesan cheese, and allow the sauce to simmer until the parmesan cheese has melted slightly.
  • Add the chicken back into the pan to serve.
  • Serve with steamed vegetables (broccoli and/or cauliflower work best), over zucchini noodles, pasta, or rice.
