Happy day, pal! Hope you’re having a wonderful summer-week!

For me, if it involves outdoor dining with my beautiful best friends and a couple of wine glasses, it means I had a fantastic week/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 Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce 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 creamy sun-dried tomato sauce 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 jars of 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 scoops of sun dried tomatoes brought the whole thing together. Theeeee End.

ENJOY!

    I just made this tonight and it was excellent! The chicken was tender and the flavor was incredible! I only had dried thyme on hand and was reluctant to make it without fresh thyme so as not to ruin the meal but it was still delicious. My husband loved it, as well, and so did my daughter. For our picky-eater sons, I fooled them and just served it without any of the onions or tomatoes over the top and they, too, said it was so good.

  2. Katie

    Sounded fabulous, but it was very bitter and much too rustic tasting. Thank you for posting, and I’m sure that some who have a more hardy palate will enjoy, just no one in my family.

  3. Jeannine

    This was excellent!! I did add one can of artichoke hearts that I roughly chopped. It was so delicious!! Will definitely make again!!

  4. STEPHEN LAMPHEAR

    So, what makes for the “creamy’ part? It seems the sauce is thickened with flour, but it doesn’t say that. Is this the ‘creamy’ part?

    I’m gonna add sour cream at the end – just because everything’s better with sour cream (or bacon)

    Also could use some heat; I’m using red pepper flakes (hot paprika would also be nice)

  5. Sarah

    Hi, I was wondering if you had the smartpoints or the nutritional information for this recipe? It looks delicious by the way!

  6. angieB

    I almost have no words to describe how delicious this recipe is, and that is really something for me as I am a wordy person in general. I really am not the biggest fan of sun dried tomatoes but I usually have some on hand that are left over from another recipe and the question is, how do I use these up? Now I know the answer to that question. This chicken was so far beyond amazing — I lost track of how many times my husband said it was “really, REALLY good” during dinner last night. He was still talking about it this morning! That rarely happens. So, thank you Katerina for sharing this wonderful recipe. I only wish i had found your blog sooner. Best to you and yours this holiday season.

  7. Looks Yummy and obviously it should taste too :)….i usually prefer adding tomatoes to chicken for tangy taste ..next time i will be surely trying with sun dried tomatoes.

    1. Hi Gale! This isn’t prepared in the oven, and I never have prepared it in the oven, so I can’t say if it will even work. Do you mean to prepare the entire dish earlier in the day and then just reheat it in the oven? The sauce will be thick once it’s cooled down, but the heat will help to make it runny again. I hope this helps! Have a great day!!

  8. […] Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts with Sun-Dried Tomatoes via Diethood: Diethood is quickly becoming one of my favorite food blogs. You may notice I’m regularly including dinners that I make from her. She’s just got lots of really tasty, healthy recipes that end up being huge hits. This dinner was made on a night when I was feeding myself (again) but I really enjoyed it. Instead of using regular chicken breasts, I used chicken breast fillets. they were much thinner but still paired well with the meal. […]

  9. FoxyGourmet

    Got my husband to make this for dinner, and wow what a winner! (Winner, winner, Chicken Dinner). Actually I wanted to make it; I’m not an accomplished cook, but I thought I could manage this. But he beat me to it. So I ate all the leftovers 🙂 Thanks for the recipe, it’s going on high rotation in our kitchen! Julie

  10. taricon

    I have no oven, so this recipe was exactly what I needed to get my chicken fix. Sadly, I didn’t have any dried tomatoes, so I had to use fresh ones. The end result, though, was excellent. Thanks for sharing this awesome idea!

  11. This dish seems quite elegant. I’d replace some of the stock with white wine and serve this with a tasty rice dish to sop up the resulting juice. Great way to use up pantry ingredients … something I’ve been doing for the last year. And it’s not getting much emptier.

  12. Can I just tell you that your writing makes me smile every time! You write better in English than most native speakers. Your cooking though is definitely not English! You have to come from Eastern Europe to cook like this! Lovely!! 🙂
