Ingredients
 

  • 1 pound chicken tenderloins (or chicken breast)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 5 cloves garlic (or 2 TB minced garlic)
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Oil for frying

Instructions
 

  • Cut chicken tenderloins/chicken breast into chunks
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • In a frying pan on high heat add oil and fry chicken. Brown 2 sides to get good color then lower heat. Don't try to cook all the way through. The high heat is for quickly coloring only.
  • Pour chicken broth and press garlic cloves or add minced garlic. Add 2 TB of butter into pan and allow the broth to cook all the way down. Watch closely to avoid burning.
  • When broth has reduced and chicken is done before removing from heat toss in remaining butter and add parsley. Stir until butter has melted then remove from heat.
  • Serve.

Notes

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Don't cut chicken into super small pieces. You want nice size chicken chunks.
  • Overcrowding your chicken and any other meat will create a steaming effect rather than frying and you'll lose your browning effect.
  • While simmering have heat high enough where the chicken broth reduces. You won't to avoid making a soup.
