Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken
Makes two to four servings
2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoons salted butter
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, diced
1 shallot, diced
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, preferably not in oil
1 tablespoons Italian seasoning
½ cup shredded Parmesan, for garnish
Dry the chicken off with paper towels, making sure to remove any moisture. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Melt butter in a large pan over medium-high heat, and add chicken. Sear the chicken 2 – 4 minutes each side, until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the pan, slice into large strips and set aside.
Heat olive oil in the same pan and add garlic, shallot, red pepper flakes. Sauté for 1 minute. Stir in chicken broth, heavy cream, sun-dried tomatoes and Italian seasoning.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 – 5 minutes, whisking occasionally.
Return chicken to the skillet. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked fully through, about 10 minutes.
Serve the chicken along with the sun-dried tomato cream sauce over pasta or rice. Enjoy!
