Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions: How to Cook Frankenmuth Chicken

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a shallow dish, mix the flour, paprika, salt, and pepper. Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add the onion and mushrooms, and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  5. Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Stir in the heavy cream and return the chicken breasts to the skillet.
  6. Cover the skillet with a lid or foil and transfer to the preheated oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  7. Sprinkle with chopped parsley before serving. Enjoy your delicious Frankenmuth Chicken with mashed potatoes or rice!
