  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 1 ½ cups chicken stock
  • ¼ cup heavy cream


  • Preheat an oven to 400 F.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and garlic powder with a fork. Season both sides of each chicken breast with the seasoning mixture.
  • Add the olive oil to a large Dutch oven over medium high heat. When the oil is hot, add the chicken breasts to the pan. Sear on both sides until brown, about 4 minutes each. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Lower the heat to medium and add the garlic, onion, carrot and celery. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the flour and stir to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the wine to the pan and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the chicken stock and heavy cream. Bring to a simmer. Add the chicken breasts back to the pan, submerging them in the sauce as much as possible.
  • Put the lid on and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. If using a probe thermometer, the internal temperature should read 165 F.
  • Transfer the chicken to a serving dish.
  • Return the sauce to the stove, simmering until it has thickened slightly. Adjust seasoning with more salt and pepper, if desired. Ladle over the chicken to serve.
