How to Cook Chicken Breast in White Sauce

  1. Place the chicken breast to a bowl.
  2. Add the onion powder, garlic powder, dried rosemary, dried thyme, salt, and pepper by taste. Coat the chicken breast with the spices and herbs.
  3. Heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet and lay the chicken breasts in it. Fry the breasts for 1-2 minutes on each side, until they turn golden-brown on the outside. Remove the chicken breasts from the skillet and set them aside.
  4. Add 2 more tablespoons of olive oil in the same skillet. Add the crushed garlic and fry it for 30 seconds, stirring.
  5. Add the fresh thyme and rosemary sprigs. Add the milk.
  6. Season the liquid with salt and pepper.
  7. Combine the cornstarch with 1-2 tablespoons of water and stir well, then add it to the skillet.
  8. Also, add the chicken breasts to the skillet. Cover with a lid and simmer for 25-30 minutes. While the liquid simmers, the cornstarch will thicken the sauce.
  9. Sprinkle fresh cilantro on top just before serving.
