This Parmesan Peppercorn Chicken Breast recipe made with Perdue HARVESTLAND Free Range Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast is one of those dishes.

I am all about the fast easy, but that doesn’t mean lack of flavor or using a bunch of premade artificial ingredients to put food on the table.

You don’t have to consider yourself to be a great cook to make this sauce. All you do is put all of your ingredients in the pan, allow to simmer, and you’re done! Pouring the sauce over the plump and juicy chicken will make you rethink your approach to chicken breast.

The best way to serve this Parmesan Peppercorn Chicken Breast is over mashed potatoes or rice with some green beans or maybe an easy salad. Maybe some quick and easy dinner rolls. To make it easy to put together when you get home from work or prep dinner from a busy day, here are some tips:
