As the weather gets cooler, the more outdoor opportunities to dine safely and quite frankly — warmly — is diminishing.

Lockdown in Virginia is looming as the COVID cases keep rising so I’ve stocked up our garage freezer with a bunch of Farmer Focus chicken and other goodies to help hold us from having to run to the grocery store often.

Since I envision we’ll be dining in a lot more, this garlic herb butter chicken skillet is a great date night in meal.

Garlic Herb Butter Chicken Skillet

This skillet chicken dish made with Farmer Focus boneless skinless thin sliced chicken breast is incredibly easy to put together and has outrageously luxurious flavor.

The butter and herbs coat the chicken so well and the sauce from the pan juices all mixed together gives it such a velvety and flavorful taste profile.

You can make your own herbed compound butter and keep it in the fridge to use in a variety of meals including this one!

Farmer Focus

We’re finishing up the year with this garlic herb butter chicken skillet being the fourth and final 2020 dish that I’ve partnered up with Farmer Focus for.

If you haven’t noticed by now, I am a loyalist to Farmer Focus chicken. I am BEYOND THRILLED to have found it at my local Costco and they’re definitely expanding into more stores as I’m always surprised to see their packaging in the cases!

Farmer Focus packaging allows you to find the family farm that your chicken came from! The Farm ID is on every single one of their packages and all you have to do is head to their website and type it in.

Organic, free-range, and high quality

Finding the family farm that your chicken came from is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to quality chicken from Farmer Focus. Each farm is certified humane by two 3rd party organizations and certified non-GMO. This means you, as the consumer, get the best organic chicken (in my opinion) on the market!

Use their store locater to find out where you can get Farmer Focus chicken in your area!

Ingredients 

  • 4-6 Farmer Focus Boneless Skinless Thin-Sliced Chicken Breasts, (or about 1.3 pounds total)
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh minced rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives

Instructions

  • Season chicken cutlets with kosher salt and black pepper.
  • In a 12-inch skillet add 2 tablespoon butter and place over medium-high heat.
  • Once the butter is melted add in the chicken and cook for about 3 minutes per side.
  • Remove the chicken from the skillet and place onto a plate.
  • In the same skillet add 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, minced garlic, rosemary, and thyme.
  • Saute for just a few minutes to help release the flavor of the garlic.
  • Pour in the chicken stock and white wine.
  • Let the mixture gently simmer.
  • Cook the liquid down by half.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan and warm through.
  • Optional, add in the remaining tablespoon of butter to create a rich sauce. However, if you don’t want the added fat that is understandable.
  • Sprinkle the top with fresh chives.

Notes

You can use whatever combination of herbs. I love the addition of chives at the end for that little hit of onion flavor without being so strong.
I leave that extra tablespoon of butter at the end as optional because it can seem off-putting to some to have that much butter. But you’re building a sauce and butter is what can bring that really rich feeling.
You could use regular boneless skinless chicken breast, just increase cooking time.
