Directions:

Once the oil is hot, add the chicken and cook until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165F (approximately 6-8 minutes).

Remove the chicken to a clean plate as you prepare the cream sauce.

Place the chicken broth in the skillet and bring to a simmer, then add the sour cream and cream cheese and stir as the cream cheese melts.
