In a heated skillet with oil over medium-high heat, sear both sides of chicken until golden in color.

Cook for about 6 to 8 minutes. Internal temperature should reach 165ºF.

Remove excess grease with paper towel. Set aside. In the same skillet, retain 2 tablespoons of oil then melt butter.

Sauté onions until translucent. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant. Pour chicken broth and deglaze pan. Stir to scrape any brown bits.

Add cream cheese and break down into smaller pieces.

Continue to stir until cream cheese is smooth and creamy. Add Parmesan cheese and blend well.

Gradually add water and soy sauce, if thinner sauce is preferred. Season with salt and black pepper as needed. Add in cooked chicken breasts.
