Happy Sunday, pal! Hope you’re having a wonderful summer-weekend!

For me, if it involves outdoor dining with my beautiful best friends and a couple of wine glasses, it means I had a fantastic weekend!

Also? My kids spent the night at my mom’s! AND! I got to sleep in!! And and! I ate ice cream for breakfast!
Don’t be jelly… it only happens like thrice a year. But I’ll take it!

Soooo. Look at that. My chicken-craze continues…

Are you totally sick and tired of seeing chicken-posts?? #sorrynotsorry. No, really, I’m not even a little bit sorry because this pan-seared chicken is about to become the best thing you’ve ever had!
Weeeeell, that’s until the next time that I post a recipe and then THAT ONE will be the best thing you’ve ever had.

We gotta talk about this chicken. Omg. I didn’t really know where I was going with this or what was going to unfold, but all I knew at that first-bite-moment was that I need to write a cookbook and call it “50 Shades of Chicken”. 😉

It all started on a one unassuming, sunny, summery afternoon… it was last week.

I went to clean the pantry and much to my surprise, I found not one but TWO bags filled with sun dried tomatoes. I was surprised because we don’t buy them that often, but when we do, I use them up as soon as possible. They’re so good! Not sure how I let these slide by…

I should also tell you that during my pantry clean-up, I found a barbie doll in there and a furry toy that totally scared the bejesus out of me because I thought it was a rat. EWWWW!!!

SO THEN, right after my “ew-that’s-gross-feeling” went away, it was clear. I knew what I had to do. Nothing was going to change my mind.
It was time to take out the silver pan and cook-up some chicken breasts.

So some breasts were “seared”, then some sauce was made, and a bag of sun dried tomatoes brought the whole thing together. Theeeee End.

ENJOY!
