The Best Creamy Tomato Italian Parmesan Chicken #italian #chickenrecipes

This Creamy Tomato Italian Parmesan Chicken is a creamy red tomato parmesan sauce with delicious italian spices. The chicken gets smothered in melty parmesan cheese and will be one of the most delicious meals you eat!

You’ll Need:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 4 chicken breasts*
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick Italian Seasoning Herb Grinder, plus more for garnish or 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese


  1. In a large skillet add 1 Tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper the chicken. Cook the chicken on medium high heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until brown on each side and cooked until no longer pink in center. Remove chicken and set aside on a plate.
  2. Add 1 Tablespoon olive oil to the skillet and add the onion and garlic. Sauté for a couple of minutes until tender. Add the tomato sauce, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, and italian seasoning. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Bring to a simmer and add the chicken back to the skillet. Top with shredded parmesan cheese. Serve over pasta of desired.


  • I like using thin chicken breasts so they cook quickly and evenly.
