Total Time:


2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons flour
2 cups LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk
3 cloves
1 sprig fresh thyme
3 bay leaves
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 pinch Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in a medium size skillet over low heat. Add garlic and flour. Cook over low heat until flour absorbs butter and begins to whiten (about 1 minute). Remove from heat and slowly add LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk while stirring constantly with a wire whisk to prevent lumps from forming. Mix well and return to heat. Add cloves, thyme, bay leaves and season with salt and pepper. Stir well. Simmer 3-4 minutes or until the sauce starts to thicken.
  2. Add chicken breasts and cover pot. Simmer over low heat 6-8 minutes. Turn breasts over and cook an additional 6 minutes or until breasts are cooked through. Discard bay leaves and serve.
