  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 2 large chicken breasts , boneless and skinless (about 1 pound)
  • 3 Tbsp garlic , minced (about 6 large cloves)
  • 1 tsp oregano , dry
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • 8 ounces pasta of choice, uncooked (I used linguini)


  • Preheat Dutch oven or heavy skillet on medium heat (5-6) for 5 minutes. Add butter and oil.
  • Add chicken and cook smoking hot for 5-8 minutes on first side (until nice and browned). Turn chicken over and cook on second side for 5-8 minutes until browned. Remove from pan to a plate.
  • Turn heat down to low-medium (3-4) and add garlic and oregano to the pan. Cook 5-8 minutes more until lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain when done.
  • Once garlic is browned, turn heat to low (1-2). Add flour, water, milk, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Mix and whisk in pan for 5 minutes until thickened.
  • Serve chicken and sauce alongside or over top of cooked pasta.
