Chicken in a Creamy Parmesan and Sun Dried Tomato Sauce
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
1 tablespoon oil
4 (~6 ounce) skinless and boneless chicken breasts, pounded thin
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy/whipping cream
1/4 cup oil packed sundried tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup fresh basil, thinly sliced (or 1 teaspoon dried basil)
Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat, add the chicken and cook until lightly golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side, before setting aside.
Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
Add the wine and deglaze the pan.
Add the broth, cream, sundried tomatoes and parmesan, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce thickens a bit, about 3-5 minutes.
