Chicken with Basil Cream Sauce

I did a post earlier about Emeals and decided to share some of my own experiences since signing up myself. I felt like I was getting in a cooking rut, making the same thing every week and losing creativity in the kitchen. 

Since starting Emeals, I have been more than happy with the meals and easy shopping provided. All you do is select your meal plan and it gives you 7 days of meals to choose from. Pick what you want for the week and it gives you a shopping list. It is that easy.

Chicken with Basil cream sauce

This check recipe is very quick and easy to make, best of all, the left overs in the Hot Logic were even better!


  • 3/4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan
  • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh basil


  1. Cut chicken in half crosswise, pound to 1/2 inch thickness. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook chicken in a medium-high skillet with oil, cook 4-5 mins on each side or until the chicken nicely browns. When done, remove the chicken.
  3. Add garlic, cook 30 seconds. Add cream, cheese, and basil. Bring to a boil, reduce heats and simmer 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Return chicken o skillet and simmer 5 minutes or until sauce has thickened. 

Emeals recommends this meal with a side of broccoli and cauliflower rice. I used to a bag of frozen "fried" cauliflower rice from Trader Joe's. It paired perfectly with this meal. 

I doubled the amount of chicken to have left overs for lunch.

Have you tried a meal prep or delivery service? What works for you?
