Chicken with Rosemary Butter Sauce

I know it’s been said before, but you really can’t have too many chicken recipes. Especially chicken recipes like this Chicken with Rosemary Butter Sauce.

Chicken with Rosemary Butter Sauce


This delicious dish can be made in about 20 minutes and only dirties one pot! And a sauce made with butter and cream–how could you possibly go wrong there?

This chicken is nice enough for company, but easy enough for a weeknight meal. My kind of dinner!

I recommend a side of rice, potatoes or pasta to go with the creamy rosemary and butter pan gravy.

In fact, it’s not a bad idea to double the sauce so you have some to spoon over your chosen side dish.

Add some grilled or steamed veggies (we like green beans!) and you’ve got a fabulous meal in almost no time.

This was one of those dishes my family kept raving about as they ate, and there wasn’t a bite left over, which means this chicken recipe went straight into the regular menu rotation!

Chicken with Rosemary Butter Sauce

Sauteed chicken breasts smothered in a creamy rosemary butter sauce. Ready in 20 minutes or less!


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in 1 tablespoon butter 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  2. Add chicken broth to pan and stir to loosen any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the cream and bring the sauce to a simmer. Continue to cook and stir until slightly thickened, 3-5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the minced rosemary and the remaining butter until butter is melted. Return chicken to pan for an additional 2-3 minutes. Spoon sauce over top just before serving.

  1. am marshall says:

    Yummy chicken! Family loved it.

  2. This dish was delicious, although I may double the sauce recipe. There didn’t seem to be much left to spoon over the rice. But, all three of my picky eaters gobbled it up, and my husband who’s been getting harder and harder to please said it was excellent!

  3. Delicious! I did add some garlic, lemon juice, and lemon zest, but we will be adding this to our recipe rotation! Thanks!

  4. Can this still work if I don’t have the heavy sipping cream?

  5. Have you used dried rosemary instead of the fresh?

  6. Amandajeann says:

    Sour cream works great instead of the heavy whipping cream if you don’t have that which most people have in their fridge. Also adding mushrooms makes a great addition… overall great recipe! All love it!
