Creamy Chicken Alfredo

So I once tried this recipe for my girlfriend and her husband. Keep in mind he "hates" cheese and refuses to eat it. So when he asked me what made it so creamy, I just turned my head and his wife spoke up and said the whipping cream! He never caught on....

1/4 cup All-purpose flour
6 Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 4 oz./each)
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tbsp Plus 1 tsp olive oil (divided)
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1-1/2 cups Whipping cream
1/3 cup Grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp Coarsely ground black pepper
1 tbsp Coarsely chopped fresh parsely
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle chicken with salt; coat with flour.
3. Heat 2 Tblsp oil in large skillet over med-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook, turning once, until golden, 2-4 mins. per side.
4. Remove chicken from skillet; place in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
5. Heat remaining oil in same skillet over med heat until hot. Add garlic and onion; cook until tender -- 1 to 2 mins.
6. Increase heat to med-high; add whipping cream, Parmesan cheese and pepper.
7. Cook until sauce is bubbly and slightly thickened, 2-3 mins. Spoon sauce over chicken in dish.
8. Bake chicken until a thermometer inserted in center registers 180 degrees, 8 - 12 mins. Sprinkle with parsley.

This recipe came from a card I got in the mail, but I found this one that is almost the same at:
