Chicken with Sherry Cream Sauce
Chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto and cooked in a creamy sauce with rosemary, garlic, and topped with Parmesan…my mouth waters every time I think about it. It’s the best combination of flavors! So savory, rich, and delicious.
This Sherry Cream Sauce is perfect for chicken and adds so much flavor. This entire meal is so easy to make, because it all happens in one skillet. Cook the chicken, make that sherry sauce, then add the chicken back in and bake it all together. From the stove to the oven and to your table in one dish!
What’s in the Cream Sauce?
- Dry Cooking Sherry
- Sour Cream
How to Make Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste. Wrap each piece of chicken with a slice of prosciutto, pushing down the edges to adhere.
Heat the butter and 1/2 tablespoon oil in a 10″ skillet over medium high heat. Swirl the mixture around in order to coat the entire base of the skillet.
Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness. You want the chicken to be browned on both sides and nearly cooked through. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet and saute the garlic for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant and translucent. Scrape the brown bits in the pan to the center as you cook, that’s where all the flavor lives!
Add the cooking sherry to the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and whisk in the sour cream 1 cup at a time, until the cream sauce forms. Lay the rosemary into the skillet. Let simmer for 10 minutes.
Place the chicken back into the skillet, nestled in the sauce.
Bake, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked and heated through.
