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!

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

    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)

  3. This looks absolutely delicious! I love sun dried tomatoes. I will definitely be trying this soon.

    PS I really like that book title idea! 😉

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

      Hi! The nutrition facts were there, but they somehow disappeared! So sorry about that and thank you for letting me know! 🙂 I’ve updated the recipe to include all the nutrition facts.

  5. love new chicken recipes, and this is certainly new to me! So thank you, love any chicken that’s not dry!

  6. 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.

      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. 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
