  1. Place milk and bread crumbs in separate, shallow bowls. In skillet, heat butter or margarine to medium heat. Dip chicken in milk, then coat with crumbs. Cook in butter or margarine, on both sides, until juices run clear (about 10 minutes). Remove and keep warm.
  2. Add broth to skillet. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and stir to loosen browned bits from pan. Stir in cream and pimentos; boil and stir for 1 minute. Reduce heat.

This is wonderful! The sauce is divine! I would double the sauce so you have enough to drizzle on a side of pasta. I pounded the chicken breasts so they weren't so thick, used half & half to ...

This was a very tasty recipe. I altered the sauce recipe slightly because I wanted to season a whole box of pasta with it. I used a whole 14oz can of chicken broth, 1 cup of Parmesan, 1/2 cup ...

Me and my husband absolutely LOVED this recipé. We loved the cream sauce the best. My husband kept on raving about it and said to make it again very soon. I served this over egg noodles. I di...

You don’t know me, but you’ve gotta believe me -this is good. I mean REAL good. I modified it a tad, starting with using the standard breading method of flour, egg and (seasoned) bread crumbs...

I was out of chicken broth so I used white wine instead. Highly recommended!

Excellent recipe. I skipped the basil and pimiento, and added some red pepper. Also used 2% milk instead of heavy cream and thickened it with butter and flour. I will make this again.

Wonderful recipe! To save preparation time, I used a packaged "shake and bake" style coating mixture and baked the chicken, then served it with the cream sauce. I added a few mushrooms to the sa...

If I could give this recipe 10 stars, I would! Everyone loved this dish! The "sauce" is what takes ordinary fried chicken to the next level. Fine dining! I dipped the chicken in a beaten egg in...

This is a great dish. I pounded the chicken breasts thin so they would not need to fry for long. I cut some fat out of the sauce by using 2% milk instead of heavy cream. To compensate for the lo...
