"This is out of the November 2019 Eatingwell magazine...a jar of sun-dried tomatoes does double duty here: the flavorful oil they're packed in is used to saute the chicken, and the tomatoes go into the cream sauce..."

Step 1

Sprinkle chicken with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat sun-dried tomato oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, about 6 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.

Step 2

Add sun-dried tomatoes and shallots to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Increase heat to high and add wine. Cook, scraping up any browned bits, until the liquid has mostly evaporated, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and stir in cream, any accumulated juices from the chicken and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper; simmer for 2 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan and turn to coat with the sauce. Serve the chicken topped with the sauce and parsley.

Daily Inspiration

Wow! This chicken was so delicious and so easy to make. DH absolutely loves sundried tomatoes and this dish was thoroughly enjoyed by both of us. I scaled the recipe back on chicken, but made the sauce as directed. Served alongside creamed spinach.

I made these with chicken tenderloins tonight. I used tarragon for the herb, and used apple cider vinegar in place of the white wine. I have never used sun dried tomatoes in the jar before and they were awesome! This made a sweetness to the chicken that was good, especially since it was healthy and low carb. I made this for Billboard Recipe Tag 2019. Very good.
