I love creamy Boursin cheese, and I’m always looking for ways to add it to my cooking. This Boursin chicken is simple to make and showcases the tangy herbal flavor of the cheese. Chicken with Boursin cheese is an uncomplicated meal I can’t get enough of!

What’s in This Boursin Chicken Recipe?

Creamy Boursin cheese adds so much flavor to this rich chicken recipe. Serve with a side of vegetables, potatoes, rice, or pasta to complement the creamy sauce.

  • Chicken: Boneless, skinless chicken breasts work best for this recipe, but you could also use thighs.
  • Seasonings: Garlic powder, salt, pepper, and onion powder add flavor to the chicken that perfectly complements the Boursin.
  • Broth: Low-sodium chicken broth helps thin out the Boursin to create a creamy sauce.
  • Boursin Cheese: Adds creaminess, tanginess, and rich herbal flavor.
  • Spinach: A handful of fresh spinach adds color and extra nutrients to this dish.

Variations To Try

There are tons of flavors of Boursin cheese you could use to make this chicken recipe. I like the original garlic and fine herbs flavor, but the shallot and chive, basil and chive, or caramelized onion and herbs flavors also work well.

You can substitute Boursin with other creamy cheeses like cream cheese or goat cheese, but the flavor profile will change. Boursin cheese is unique for its herbs and garlic flavor.

How to Store and Reheat

Store leftover Boursin chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently on the stove or in the microwave.

How to Freeze

This recipe can be frozen, although the texture of the sauce might alter slightly upon thawing. To freeze, cool the chicken and sauce completely, then portion into airtight containers or Ziplock bags, seal tightly, and label with the date. Properly stored, it can last for up to 2-3 months in the freezer. When ready to use, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.

Notes from the Test Kitchen

If the sauce is too thin, you can mix a teaspoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of water and stir it into the sauce. Cook for an additional minute until the sauce thickens.
