Chicken for dinner is a staple in our house. The problem is, I tend to get into a rut with they way that I prepare it. Our “go to” is usually grilled chicken. I wanted to try something different and found this recipe on Pinterest. My husband and I LOVED this, and it was SO easy to make. We’re planning to have this for dinner again this week.

Chicken with Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce


Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make 4 servings:
Recipe adapted from Damn Delicious

  • 4 (3 oz.) chicken breasts (I butterflied 2 large chicken breasts)
  • salt & pepper to taste 
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup julienned sun dried tomatoes in olive oil, drained
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season chicken breasts with salt & pepper.

Melt butter in a large oven-proof skillet (I used a Dutch oven) over medium heat. Add chicken to skillet and sear both sides until golden brown (about 3 minutes on each side). Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.

Add garlic to skillet, stirring frequently for about 2 minutes.

Stir in chicken broth, cream, sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan, thyme, oregano, and basil. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3-5 minutes.

Return chicken to the skillet. Place skillet into oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes (or until chicken reaches temperature of 165 degrees).

Place 1 chicken breast onto each plate & top with sauce. Enjoy!

Full disclosure: You’re going to want to drink the sauce (it’s THAT good). Smile
