This recipe is a winner. The chicken is unbelievably tender and the depth of flavor is incredible. I guarantee you will want to drink the sauce! My boyfriend even said this is his favorite dish I’ve ever made–and I’ve cooked him a lot of meals!


chicken in sun-dried tomato and white wine cream sauce
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
 
Ingredients
  • 6-8 thinly sliced boneless, skinless chicken breasts, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 5 tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
  • 5-6 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ - ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained, plus more if desired
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan
  • ½ tsp. fresh thyme
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. plus ¼ cup fresh basil, chiffonade, divided
Instructions
  1. Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, melt 3 tbsp. butter over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook about 2-3 minutes per side; set aside.
  3. Melt remaining 2 tbsp. butter in the skillet, then add garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook mixture, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. In a separate skillet, heat 1 tsp. olive oil, then add onion slices. Cook, stirring frequently, until translucent and aromatic, and slightly browned. Remove from heat.
  5. In the skillet with the garlic, stir in chicken broth, heavy cream, white wine, sun-dried tomatoes, onions, Parmesan, thyme, oregano and basil.
  6. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet over low heat; cook another few minutes, coating the chicken in the sauce.
  7. Serve hot and garnish with fresh basil.

    Ok so I have been dying to try one of your recipes and I finally tried this one last night! It was a huge hit and it was truly delicious.

    If you don’t mind, I just have a couple of ‘corrections’ for the recipe that threw me a bit off but I ultimately figured it out. I assume it is 1/2 CUP of julienned sun dried tomatoes but the cup part was missing. Also, in the middle of the recipe, you jump from cooking the onions in a separate pan to stirring in the cream, chicken broth, etc, but you don’t say which pan to use for that. I assumed you meant to put all of that into the garlic/butter pan but I did definitely stop to think about that one for a second! Sorry, I hope you are not offended by this because it was absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to try another recipe!

      So glad this was a hit, Jamie! and thank you so much for catching my errors, I apologize! I just revised the recipe, so it should make sense now. Sorry about that again, but glad you liked the chicken!!

    This looks delicious! What do you serve this with?

      Thank you, Ana, it’s suuuper yummy!! I think orzo, mashed potatoes, or with spaghetti would be delicious (since the sauce is to die for)!
