Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, in a single layer; cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  • Meanwhile, combine butter, garlic, Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper in a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave on High until the butter is melted and the garlic is sizzling, about 45 seconds.

  • Cook wine in the skillet over medium-high heat until reduced by half, about 1 minute. Add broth; bring to a simmer. Return the chicken to the pan; spoon the garlic butter mixture over the chicken. Transfer to the oven and bake until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken registers 165°F, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
