  • Optional: I like to pound and flatten the chicken out a little so it cooks evenly throughout.
  • Place milk and bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. 
  • Dip chicken in milk, then coat with crumbs. 
  • In a skillet over medium heat cook chicken in butter until browned on both sides. 
  • Remove chicken from skillet and keep in a 9x13 pan in the oven on warm.
  • Add chicken broth to skillet and stir to loosen up browned bits from pan. 
  • Stir in cream, basil, and pepper and bring to a boil. 
  • Turn heat to low and whisk in parmesan cheese. 
  • Pour sauce over the chicken and serve.
