THIS SAUCE. The end.

Okay but really… that pretty much sums it up. This rich, creamy, cheesy, sun dried tomato and garlic herb sauce is a big fat slice of heaven on earth and your weeknight chicken game will never be the same after you try this goodness.

Skillet Chicken in Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Sauce |

I discovered the beauty of sun dried tomatoes oh, maybe five or six years ago in a salad I had at a restaurant I now can’t remember the name of. But what I do remember was initially thinking that sun dried tomatoes sounding iffy to me, and finishing the dish wishing I had a whole bowl full of sun dried tomatoes by themselves to devour.

If you haven’t tried them before… they’re really incredible. You can purchase them at any grocery store, usually near the olives and whatnot. They come jarred, or bagged, and be sure to look for the ones that are packed in oil. You’re going to drain that oil before you use them, but the oil really keeps the flavor nice and bold.

Combining sun dried tomatoes with garlic, a few dried herbs, and parmesan cheese is a match made in heaven. I swear to you I could just drink this sauce straight up, BUT since that hardly qualifies as a well-rounded meal, I put chicken under the sauce as a general rule of thumb.

This super flavorful, 30 minute chicken dish will blow you away with how simple and delicious it is. It’s easy enough to throw together for any busy weeknight, yet impressive enough to wow company and become a go-to for special occasions. You will love this skillet chicken in creamy sun dried tomato sauce!

  • 4-6 chicken thighs (I used boneless skinless), or 4 chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning OR 1/2 teaspoon each dried basil, dried oregano, dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup juliened sun dried tomatoes, (they come in a jar packed with oil, be sure to drain excess oil)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup half and half, or heavy cream (use heavy cream for a thicker, creamier sauce!)
  • 2/3 cup shaved or shredded parmesan cheese (or more to taste) + 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese for topping
  • fresh basil or thyme, for topping
  • salt and pepper, to taste (I use about 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper)


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a platter and cover to keep warm while you make the sauce.
  • Add garlic, Italian seasoning, sun dried tomatoes, chicken broth, half and half or heavy cream, and 2/3 cup parmesan cheese to pan and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, and continue to stir periodically until thickened and creamy (5-7 minutes).
  • Return chicken to pan and spoon the sauce over the chicken. Top with cracked black pepper, grated parmesan cheese, fresh thyme or basil, and serve.

that looks really good! I think it would be even better if you added some mushrooms.

    I think mushrooms would be a fantastic addition!

      Is there any way to determine the calories per portion?

        I don’t have the nutritional info on hand for this recipe, but MyFitnessPal has an awesome tool that calculates all that out for you! Here’s the link: It’s free and all you do it copy and paste the recipe URL into the Recipe Importer and it will tell you everything you need to know! 🙂

        326 calories per serving.

      How long do you cook it after you return chicken to pan ?

        Hi William! The chicken should be cooked through before it is removed from the pan. When returning the chicken to the pan it only needs to be heated up for about a minute so it is nice and warm when serving! 🙂

    Mushrooms and a little cayenne pepper…..yum

    5 stars
    I made this tonight and added portobello mushrooms and it was amazing!!
    This would be great over rice or pasta.

    I made this using chicken breast meat from a rotisserie chicken. Delicious & time saving!

      Great idea!

this looks delicious! could you add cooked pasta to this recipe at the end when you add the chicken back in? if so, would you need to increase the volume of sauce to properly coat both the chicken and pasta?

    Hi there! This recipe yields a good amount of sauce, so you should be fine adding the cooked pasta to this dish as is.

hey girl- this looks so good! right up my alley!

I added spinach. This recipe was so delicious and so quick to make.

    What a great addition! Glad you liked it!

    Did the chicken cook all the way through in the time frame it says or did you cook it longer?

      took a whole lot longer for me!

    yeah spinach sounds good too

5 stars
Could you swap the heavy cream/half and half for greek yogurt? Just a thought. Thanks!

    I’ve never used greek yogurt as substitute in this recipe before so I’m not sure what the outcome would be. If you try it I’d love to hear your results!

Ah, this is hitting all the quick-and-easy, comfort food spots! Nothing like chicken cooked in a creamy sauce, and with sun-dried tomatoes… Heaven! I’ve been putting them in everything lately and a local producer of mine jars his tomatoes along with whole garlic cloves, rosemary leaves and other herbs which means a) I have delicious sun-dried tomatoes and b) the oil left over from the jar makes the BEST salad dressing.

I’m currently enduring a freezing winter in Australia at the moment and I need all the quick comfort food meals I can get my hands on. This is going straight to the list! 😃

    This is the perfect go-to comfort meal for those chilly months! Let me know how you like it! 🙂

This was delicious and easy!! Husband said this is a keeper and not to miss any leftovers!!

This looks great for us full-time RVers. Simple ingredients, not too many, and can be cooked outside on a burner in hot Arizona weather so inside stays cool. And it is perfect for serving guests. Thank you!

This chicken looks amazing!

I made this tonight, loved by all, even the fussy one. It’s yum!! The added bonus is it’s so easy to make. Thank you.

I made this and served it over whole wheat spaghetti. It is an AWESOME recipes.

Doesn’t say a calorie count but I did some calculations and one breast with adding all ingredients including mushroom and spinish is 589 calories !!!!! No pasta but still a great yummy meal for dieters!!!

This sounds delicious! It makes me hungry just looking at your photos. 🙂 Yum! I think I’ll make it this week, just need to buy sun dried tomatoes and heavy cream. I like the idea of adding spinach, and I was thinking of serving it with grated cauliflower. However, pasta sounds delicious too, I’m just trying to cut out wheat products.

5 stars
I cooked this last night and it was amazing. This is going to be my go-to chicken dinner for the family so easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing!

What does half and half mean

    Hi Jackie! Half and half is half whole milk and half cream. You will find it in the dairy section at the store. 🙂

5 stars
Delicious! I had lots of chicken so I pretty much doubled the recipe& used more tomatoes than called for. Right before I served the chicken I sprinkled a bit of shredded mozzarella on each piece of chicken. I served rice with it, but next time I’ll try pasta. Thanks for the inspiration!

5 stars
I can not be more agree with you when you said: This sauce. the end. 🙂
You will like this shirt “in Sauce we Trust”

Absolutely fantastic!! Fiance said it was the best meal I’ve made in weeks 😂 and so easy too!! I put his serving over pasta. He’s requesting more sauce next time! I’m thinking I’ll add some mushrooms like some comments suggest next time!

I wonder if the addition of small bacon strips would be too much?

    I think that would be a great addition!

Anyone tried this with buttermilk instead of cream?

5 stars
This was super easy and very tasty! I used chicken breasts but they were quite large so I split them down the center to get them to a decent thickness. Put them in some egg wash and coated them in panko crumbs before frying. The sauce is fantastic. A little sweetness from the sun dried tomatoes, the parmesan added a savory component and great herb flavors. This dish was fantastic with some angel hair pasta with the sauce over that as well. Nice recipe Tiffany!

    Thank you! I’m really glad you enjoyed it!

I made this last night only I added sauteed mushrooms, artichoke hearts and served over noodles. I was sooooo good!!! I had many compliments 😊

    Meant to say…. IT was sooooo good!

I added thinly sliced bell peppers .. the entire family adored it, it’ll be in our rotation for years to come

5 stars
Quick question – this looks delicious by the way – would it be possible to freeze this do you think? Am actually thinking it may be really yummy made with light evaporated milk instead of the cream too. I make my carbonara only with Evap milk now and it is absolutely scrumptious and you don’t feel guilty about eating it 😎 Has anyone tried this?

This is one of those “go out and get the stuff to make it….TONIGHT!!!” recipes…
The only thing I think I’ll change is to add a splash of white wine after the garlic
and seasoning “bloom” to nuance the sauce…..:) 🙂 🙂

    Excuse me, but what is ‘bloom’ seasoning?

Made this today! Delicious just like it is! My finicky husband says it’s a keeper, and that says a lot. Thanks for the recipe.

5 stars
I loved this. My sauce was pretty thin though. Is that normal? I was expecting it to be thicker.

    Hi Pamela! I’m sorry your sauce wasn’t as thick as you were hoping. Next time, make sure to use heavy cream and try adding extra parmesan cheese. This should make your sauce thicker. 🙂

4 stars
What if you swapped the cottage cheese for ricotta cheese how do you think that would taste ?

What do you mean by half and half.? Half what and what ? Going to cook this tonight for dinner Cant wait

    Hi! You can find Half and Half in the diary section at the grocery store. 🙂

    5 stars
    If you live outside of the US, 1/2 and 1/2 may be more difficult to find.

    This is called “half-cream” in the UK – it’s not very common. Make your own my mixing milk and single cream or “pouring cream” and mix it with milk (skimmed, semi-skimmed, or whole as you wish) to the consistency that you want.

    If using a recipe that calls for it try using a 2:1 mix of “single cream” and “full fat milk.”

    US “half and half” has typically a 12% fat content.
    UK single cream has an 18% fat content.

5 stars
This is fantastic! Making it a second time tonight. I like red pepper flakes in everything. That was the only change I’ve made. I increase the sauce when I made it with pasta. It’s sooo addictive I feel like you can’t have too much sauce!

4 stars
Hi Loved this recipe, as a full time worker its always a struggle to find quick and easy recipes for our chilly winter here in Australia, especially one pan ones, even better! Cant wait to cook this one this week. I do a similar one all cooked in the one pan using pork chops and mushrooms, garlic, dijon mustard, and a splash of white wine before the cream, (now i’ll add the sun dried tomatoes and parmesan ) which will add a new dimension to my dish. Cheers Marie

I cooked this last night and added button mushrooms because we love mushrooms. We ate with crust bread. It was really good. Thank you for sharing the yummy recipe

5 stars
I made this last night and my family loved it! My husband literally licked his dish!
Thanks for all of the GREAT recipes!

4 stars
Loved the dish, but slight problem: my sauce never really thickened.. Im not sure why. I added spinach and mushrooms and the flavors were all still present, just didn’t get the creaminess of the dish.

    I’m sorry your sauce wasn’t as thick as you were hoping. Next time, make sure to use heavy cream and try adding extra parmesan cheese. This should make your sauce thicker.

3 stars
I really expected I’d be a fan of this because I like everything that goes into making it. I followed the directions to the letter down to the fresh basil & thyme from my herb garden for garnish. Unfortunately it was way too salty for my taste in spite of the fact that I : a) didn’t add any additional salt at any point during the cooking (to taste, at the end of the ingredient list) and I used no-salt-adding chicken stock which has about 1/3 less salt than the 1/3-less-salt chicken broth in the cans and I even used no-salt butter, altho that was just a coincidence.

I can only think of 2 possible explanations: a) the chicken thighs I used had been way to heavily brined. I no longer have the packaging but they were no-antibiotics, no-hormone from one of the common name labels as I recall. Or b) there was a lot of salt in my Parmesan. I’ve read on-line that Parm is low sodium but according to Wiki the real stuff is soaked in salt water for 20 days and 3.5 oz. (which I’d guess to be about a cup after grating which is about how much I used) has over 1600 mg of sodium. I used the real stuff & not that sawdust you get in the green plastic bottle. Or a combination of the 2.

I’m sorry to give kind of a negative review and if I do try this again I’ll see if I can figure out where I went wrong and update it.

    i felt the same way, Hal. It was too salty for my taste. For me, it was the sun-dried tomatoes that I had purchased. They were too salty. I also felt that the italian herbs overtook the rest of the flavour. My sauce didn’t thicken as I expected by I did use Half-and-Half instead of Heavy Cream.


I loved this recipe. I’m not sure if I went a bit sundried tomato crazy (very possible lol) but I found the sauce wasn’t as creamy as I thought.

If I happen to have a bit extra oil in my skillet, would you advise more cheese or more cream?

Regardless this was the easiest meal and it was yummy!

    Hi Lindsay! I’m sorry your sauce wasn’t as thick as you were hoping. Next time, make sure to use heavy cream and try adding extra parmesan cheese. This should make your sauce thicker. 🙂

5 stars
I made this tonight and my Husband Loved it! He said it was a keeper. I did add Mushrooms to it and think next time I will also add sautéd onions to it as well – saw on here where someone added spinach – that would be good too. I served it with Pasta and it was Fabulous!
Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe!

    I love that you added mushrooms! Definitely trying that next time I whip this up!

I wonder if this would work subbing tofu for the chicken?

Made it tonight and added fresh spinach and mushrooms family favourite now

Has anybody tried to convert this to a crockpot recipe? Thinking about trying it that way.

4 stars
I liked this dish a lot. The chicken turned out tender and moist, while the sun dried tomatoes and Parmesan cheese provided tons of flavor . I did feel that 2 teaspoons of Italian Seasoning was a bit much for me. Next time, I will use only 1. Thanks!

5 stars
That was SO GOOD! I doubled the recipe and it turned out very tasty. I added two cups of arugula, just because I had it on hand. I’d definitely make it again. I think this would be a beautiful dish to serve to company.

    I love the idea to add arugula!!

Made this last week with pork – was ok
But today tried it with3 chicken breast and my family went ape
This is so good and it takes no time to make
My youngest is already asking when we can have it again
Bravo a real winner
One of you readers mentioned that it was a little salty
That comes from the cheese and happens naturally when the liquids in milk evaporate
You are left with milk solids and as milk contains sodium you naturally have sodium in cheese

    So glad your family enjoyed this recipe Peggy! It’s one of my favorites! 🙂

I had a problem with the sauce thickening up as well. I’ve made this twice, and although delicious, the sauce was thin. I used heavy cream both times, and used more cheese the second time. It seems like the parmesan wants to clump together. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Susan, that seems so strange, I never have issues with this sauce being too thin… Are you maybe not cooking it long enough? The sauce does tend to get thicker the longer it cooks…

5 stars
This was proper nice, full of flavour, definitely try this with pasta next.

5 stars
Found this secret- I purchase minced Garlic (the type they use for garlic nuts) from my pizzeria and use it in my garlic containing dishes- always get compliments. It would slam bang in this dish

Can you do this in the crock pot?

5 stars
I tried this dish last evening for my husband and one of my daughters. We ALL LOVED it. Another daughter will be here soon and I would like to try it with shrimp, since she doesn’t ear meat. Have you tried shrimp before?
I would leave everything else exactly the same. Spinach would be a great addition, too. Thanks!!

    I made it with shrimp and it was fantastic. I used huge head on fresh shrimp and seafood stock instead of chicken broth.

5 stars
I cooked this tonight with chicken breast and cut it up into small pieces. Served it over egg noodles. It was yummy. But I will cut up the tomatoes into smaller pieces so there aren’t such big pieces. Will definitely fix again.

Add some chilli just wonderful

This recipe totally lives up to the hype! Easy and delicious

Can you make this in a crock pot?

    Hey Beth! I haven’t had a chance yet to try this out in a crock pot but it’s on my must-try list! If you give it a go before I do, please let me know how it turns out!

5 stars
I finally made this and let me tell you, it was phenomenal! Definitely 5 star, restaurant quality, but so very easy to make! I doubled the sauce and added baby bella mushrooms. Used angel hair pasta for the sauce, served with crusty French bread. Man, it was incredible! This is now on a once or twice a month rotation, for sure! Thank you!!!

    Angela thanks so much for your heartfelt feedback! This is one of my family’s favorite recipes and I’m so happy to hear you love it too!

5 stars
This really is one of the most delicious meals I have ever cooked! I felt like I was at a fancy restaurant! I used your recommendation to do 1/2 teaspoon each of the basil Thyme and oregano, and I also added another 1/2 tsp of Rosemary. I did use my immersion blender on the sauce before adding the chicken back in since mine did not look as red as yours and it really helped meld flavors together. Incredible!

    Thanks for your great feedback Caitlin! I’m so happy you loved this dish!

5 stars
Made this for my parents and husband last week and everyone absolutely loved it! My mother who never likes anything but her traditional Indian food kept reaching for more! Only changes I made were that I sliced up the chicken, cooked it with garlic, red pepper, salt, pepper and served everything with fettuccine pasta. The sauce was so delicious! Thanks for another great recipe!

I made this last night and followed directions to the letter apart from not having fresh Parmesan. I added 1tbsp of Parmesan granules to the sauce. I steamed the chicken breasts in the oven in foil with a scrape of butter and cracked pepper as I find it doesn’t dry out as much. Absolutely beautiful, thank you for a delicious dinner👍

Looks delish! I’m an “extra sauCe”kind of girl… so if i doubled just the sauce Ingredients, Would i also need to double the butter for browning the chicken?

If i double the sauce, do i need to double the butter in the begining for browning the chicken?

    No, you shouldn’t need to double the butter unless you are also doubling the amount of chicken. 🙂

3 stars
I tried this last night and I thought I did everything correct but the sauce came out watery and I had chucks of parmesian cheese. the taste was there but the cheese didn’t want to melt. has this happened to anyone?

5 stars
Soooo flavorful!

My family was skeptical about this recipe, but they wound up loving it! The very things they weren’t sure about(sun-dried tomatoes, for instance) They enjoyed the most! They did suggest cutting the chicken in chunks and more sauce the next time I make it. Also, I wasn’t able to get the sauce as thick AS I WOULD’VE LIKED, BUT I THINK THAT’S MY FAULT AND NOT THE RECIPE ITSELF. Very delicious anyway!

Sooo good. My oNly regret is not doubling the sauce. I added extra parMesan and 1 tsp of baking soda mixed With 1 tsp of water to thicken it up a bit. I served mine with Penne noodles and tossed the noodles in my sauce 😋

I followed the recIpe exacty and it came out sooooo good!
Thank you!!

5 stars
Made for dinner last night and everyone loved it. even my picky 8 year old. i didn’t know i could cook something that tasted this good. thank you!

4 stars
This was tasty, but generally, 30 minute meals (with any chef’s quick recipes) always take me more than 30 MINUTES-usually closer to an hour. Anyone else have the same experience?

    Yes it took me longer too but so worth it

5 stars
Fast and deliCious. Thank you!

5 stars
This was amazing!!! I’m adding it to my “regular” dishes

5 stars
tried this and it was amazing!! roommates loved it too. this was the first recipe ive tried on this site and will definitely be coming back.

I haVemade this dish three times now An and it has been excellent every time! On One time I put it on regular pasta, another time on spaghetti squash and this time I added spinach. Anyway you make it it’s very tasty!

    All three of those sound delicious! Happy to hear that you have enjoyed it over and over!

Ive made this several times and its delicious.i change it up a bitcuz i never follow a recipe exactly. I added sauted onions, mushrooms, maRsala wine, and artichoke hearts. Had friends over for dinner and they were loving it. Served with a greek saLad with lemon vinaigrette dressing. Everything was a hit!

    Your modifications sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing. I am happy to hear that you loved this recipe!

I forgot to mention that i served this dish over zoodles (zucchini spiriled noodles) and it was a fabulous low carb keto style meal.

    Great idea! I love zoodles!

5 stars
Made it tonight and got a ‘its worth it’ praise from 6 years old. So guess it’s awesome.

    Oh yes! When you can get an easy approval from a six year old, alright!! Glad that you guys loved it!

Hi I’m thinking I might try using tomato pesto stirred into the sauce. Thoughts?

    Hi Lisa- That sounds like an interesting idea! I think it would work. I would love to hear how it turns out!

I use the oi from the sun-dried tomatoes to cook the chicen in – intensifies the flavor.

Could i use grated parm instead of shredded?

    Yes- that should be fine!

5 stars
Loved this dish. i tried it and it turned out great….based on another review I decided to omit some of the salt & glad I did because it was just a few salt crystals from being too salty. I read my ingredients and saw the parmesan cheese I used had 450mg of salt per 1/2 cup. The recipe calls for 2/3 cup so that would be roughly 700mg of salt. Then my sun dried tomatoes also had sodium in it. I also read reviews saying they could not get their sauce to thicken up. As I cooked my chicken breast I noticed a lot of water/juice in the pan from the chicken. prior to putting in the other ingredients I removed some of the excess water from the pan. it did the trick for me because if I’d left all that fluid I think it would have been difficult to thicken up

    Thanks for sharing your input, Veronica! I am so happy to hear that you loved it.

looks wonderful


5 stars
This was delish. I made in my instant pot for 15 min. Added the cheese afterward and put on saute for another 5. Ended up being soupy probably because of the water retention from the pressurized cooking, So i literally just ate it like a Bowl of soup. But Omg the flavor was amazeballS!

    Hi Ashley! Way to go on the instant pot!! I will definitely have to consider making a recipe for an Instant Pot version of this. Thanks for sharing your great ideas!! Glad that you loved the flavor!

I am making this for dinner TOnight! I love all your recipes

    That is such a nice compliment!! Thank you so much!

5 stars
Cooked it tonight. Came out amazing. My wife agrees though, mushrooms would work. I served it with mashed and Asparagus. On point.

    I am a huge mushroom fan- I think that would be so delicious on it! So happy to hear that you both loved this dish!!

I want to tRy this.

The best thing about this sauce is it’s very versatile. I have used with chicken, fish, pork and tofu. I’m a vegetarian but my family isn’t so I tweak sauce for me and use tofu and family gets the meat!

    This is so great! I love that you have loved and used it so many ways! Thank you for sharing, Rebecca!

Love the recipe, thinking of adding the spinach at the end, and definitely mushrooms…maybe to make it heartier cannel beans instead of pasta?

    Great ideas! Sounds yummy. Thanks for sharing, Laurie!

5 stars
This was Spectacular! I added mushrooms and spinach.

    Great idea! I bet that was delicious. Thanks for sharing, Karen!

I Made something like this with shrimp. It was so good. I will be trying this with chicken now. And I add mushrooms to nearly everything.

    I am a HUGE mushroom fan! I bet that would be so delicious. So happy that you loved this! Thanks for sharing your ideas, Phyllis!

OMG, I just made this (I have pasta cooking right now, to serve it over) and it’s amazing!!! Like restaurant quality and pretty too (I added baby spinach while the sauce was cooking and lots of freshly ground black pepper). Thanks for a great, easy recipe!!

    YUM!! Great idea with the baby spinach- I love spinach! Sounds so great!! Thanks for sharing, Kristine! 🙂

Would this freeze well

    Hi Brittney- I haven’t frozen this meal myself, but I think that it could work! Definitely let me know the outcome if you give it a try!!

What about using bone-in chicken thighs and baking it in the oven for 30 min or so after it is assembled?
And Maybe serve it over mashd potatoes?

    Sounds delicious- Definitely let me know if you give it a try, Robbie!

Can i sUbstitute coconut milk for thE haLf & half?

    Yes, but the constancy may end up different because half and half is much more creamy! Also beware of the flavor difference. I’d love to hear how it turns out!

Id like extra sauce, just double the liquids?

    Yes! I hope it turns out great for you! 🙂

Where can I buy your cookbook

    I don’t have one quite yet, perhaps in the future! 🙂 Thanks for the sweet compliment!

I’m making this dish tonight and I’m adding mushrooms and spinach as others have suggested. My question is when do I add them into the cooking process?

    I hope that you love this dish! Add them in step 2 while making the sauce! 🙂

      I made this dish last night for company and they loved it. I sautéed the mushrooms before the garlic and added the spinach with the broth. I too had a thinner sauce than expected and the cheese did clump somewhat. Not sure why, but this dish will definitely be a regular.

Does the type of pan you use make a difference? I don’t own a cast iron skillet-yet

    Hi Alexandra- You don’t have to use a cast iron skillet but you do need to make sure you use an oven safe skillet!

5 stars
Really good!!!!! My kids eat it and they eat nothing. Thank you

    This comment totally made me laugh out loud! Sounds like something familiar here at my house, haha. Thanks for making me laugh! Happy to hear that you and your family loved this dish! Thanks, Derrick!

5 stars
Absolutely delicious! Will make this again and again!

    So happy to hear that you loved this dish!! The sauce on this is my favorite! Thanks for your feedback, Jules!

Made this last night for dinner but my sauce never thickened. Any ideas why? I used heavy cream and shredded parmesan as recommended.

    Hi Betty- sorry to hear this! That seems so strange, I never have issues with this sauce being too thin. Are you maybe not cooking it long enough? The sauce does tend to get thicker the longer it cooks.

I am going to try this today with chicken and I’ll be adding spinach and mushrooms. I’m wondering if this would work with salmon?

    Hi Jody- I haven’t done this particular recipe with salmon but I bet it would be delicious! I would love to hear how it turns out if you do!

5 stars
I made this tonight and it was delicious!! Everyone loved it! It takes a lot for my husband to express that hr likes anything, but he did so with this recipe, myltiolr tomes. and It was incredibly easy to Make!! thank you for sharing this!

    Husband approved- alright!! Way to go! Thanks for stopping by, Darlene!

LOOKS so good

5 stars
this is divine! i added mushrooms.

    I love adding mushrooms to this dish! So excited to hear that you loved this dish, Missy! Thanks for your feedback! 🙂

Looks yummy

Is an 8 in skillet large enough for the sun dried chicken recipe or do i need bigger? i only have the cast iron in 8″

    I used a bigger one for sure, but you can see I had a little extra space! It might be a tight fit with that but probably possible depending on how big your chicken thighs/breasts are!!

5 stars
What a great Recipe!
Pleased with the sauce, not too thin as some others experienced. Used 1/2 and 1/2. Had six boneless skinless chicken thighs so I used two large skillets. Next time I make it i’ll include mushrooms too! Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

    Hi Lisa! I am super excited to hear that this dish turned out so good for you! I love adding mushrooms to this- I’m a big mushroom fan myself! Thanks for sharing your feedback! 🙂

Can i use regular milk or evapo milk ins of half and ha milk ?

    Hi Zenia- evaporated milk can be substituted in equal amounts for half and half, typically. I haven’t done that with this particular recipe though, so I can’t say for sure. Regular milk would work fine, however the half and half is intended to help make the sauce creamy, so my concern would be that regular milk would not make the sauce creamy enough!

I bought the sundries tomatoes in a bag..then when I got home to make the recipee I see it was suppose to be in the jar…will this work as well or do I have to do anything different…I know I have to soak them in warm water as that’s What the package says…thanks for any advice.

    Hi Carol- it should be fine! They are pretty interchangeable (dry packed vs. in a jar) The only difference might be that some of the jarred sun dried tomatoes are not only submerged in an oil but they might have some herbs and/or garlic. So maybe take that into consideration taste wise if you think the end result is missing something!

IMade it… great… it was fast
And delicious.. and I Add the mUshrooms… suprise for my husband, let us see if he likes it🤔

    I’d love to hear what your husband thought! Sometimes men are hard to please 😉 Thanks for sharing! It’s so delicious with adding mushrooms- good thinking!

This is sooo tasty. We don’t like Chicken thighs so I used breasts instead. That works well. Will definitely cook this again (and again and again)

    Awesome! Way to go with your modification. Thanks for sharing, Annette!

i made this last night-delicious! I will try adding mushrooms next time-comments have persuaded me to! I also made pasta to spoon this over. Thank you!

    You definitely can not go wrong with adding mushrooms! YUM. Thanks for your feedback, Barb!

OMG. Seriously this recipe is amazing. This Recipe alone has helped me and my family rediscover a love for CHICKEN. My HUSBAND made this for dinner one EVENING am),and you can bet i requested We make it again. It was so good in Fact i had him send me the LINK so i can make it myself. We usually make it with THe oil packed tomatoes but we have used sundried vacuum packed tomatoes (the ones not in oil) wih SUccess. The Tomato flavor does mute a LITTLE BIT but not so much that it is a big deal. We have had it weekly since discovering it and i would recommend it. Everyone always loves it. Thank so much!

    I absolutely love hearing when a recipe becomes a regular rotation! I am excited that you and your husband love this dish so much, Natasha! Thanks for your feedback 🙂

forgot to rate it. here you go: 5 stars!

What vegetables would go nicely with this meal??

    Hi Barbara- a lot of people are adding mushrooms with this, maybe try that! Something on the side like broccoli would be delicious- I’d put some of the sauce on top of broccoli with this!

Could you substitute greek yogurt for the heavy cream?

    Hi Brittni- you could try that if you wanted to. I don’t think your sauce will turn out as creamy as it would if you were to use heavy cream! But I think it would still taste good! I would love to hear what you think after you give it a try!

It was delicious!

Made last night, easy & delicious.

    Happy to hear you had such a great experience with this recipe! Thanks for your feedback, Tyler!

The Chicken in dried tomates recipe is awesome but I strongly recomment a teaspoon of dried pepper flakes with sauteing the garlic.

    Nice idea- thanks for sharing!

This is one of my very favorite finds from pinterest ever. I USEd an immersion blender on the sauce since my store only had sundried tomato halves, but it is AMAZING. Especially over fettuccine. Thanks!!

    Great job, Caitlin! Perfect idea to use the immersion blender. Thanks for your feedback!! I am super excited to hear that you loved this recipe 🙂

Ive made this dish a few times And its always DELICIOUS. I never make it the same Cuz i add my own ingredients. This time i added cream cheese and boursin cheese TO THICKEN and to add flAvor.I NEEDED MORE VEGGIES SO I ADDED SLICED ZUCCHINI AND A BUNCH OF SPINACH AT THE VERY END. I HAD TO COOK DOWN THE LIQUID A BIT FROM THE ZUCCHINI ADDITION BUT IT WAS WORTH THE EXTRA EFFORT.
My husband pOurs the yummy sauce Over mashed potatoes but i like to keep my carbs down sO i accomaniY this wonderful dish with a side salad. If its possible i can upload a photo cuz i always take pictures of food.

    Great job, Donna! thanks for your input 🙂

Wow. What a delicious recipe. Thank you so much. I doubled the cream but it was still salty. I added more milk, and it became the exact sauce i’ve been looking for all these years.

    Fantastic!! Way to go. Sounds like you did a great job, Jennifer!

Def needed more sauce and i used 3 CHICKEN breasts. Needed lost more flavor for mY family.

    Sorry to hear that you had that issue for whatever reason, Carrie! I haven’t experienced that problem with this recipe before.

Added mushrooms and SPINACH, increased sauce by halffor additions, substit d sliced shallots for garlic. Delicious!!

    I bet those additions were fabulous- way to go! Thanks for sharing, Margaret!

I made this tonight. I followed the recipe as written. I am not a novice cook. It was disappointingly bad. The flavor profile and technique are off. This is the second entree i’ve made from this site and both turned out poorly. I won’t try any additional recipes from this site.

    Hi Thom- Sorry to hear that you have not had a good experience for whatever reason! Thanks for sharing your feedback.

5 stars
Delicious. Made with angel hair. Used 6 large chicken breasts so I doubled the sauce.

    Fantastic job, Elisa!! Thanks for your input!

I made this this evening here at work and it got rave reviews!

i improvised by adding a bag of dried cranberries and honey roasted pecans that i found in the salad toppings aisle…and it was a big hit! just don’t forget to increase the amount of sauce to make up for the extra ingredients.

    Sounds delicious- thanks for sharing, Eric! Awesome job!

I made this with bonEin skinless thighs, which of course had to cook a bit longer. Im sure it would have been better with CHICKEN breast. i dont know what went wrong, but this the first meal ive mAde that wound up in the garbage years!

    I am sorry to hear that- I wish I knew what went wrong, as well!

Hi Tiffany, in the recipe it says 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning OR 1/2 teaspoon each dried basil, dried oregano, dried thyme, is the one ingredient missing as the total amount only comes to 1&1/2 teaspoons, Thanks, Johnny.

    Hey John! A lot of Italian seasonings have rosemary as well, but it’s not very common to have on hand. You could use that as well if you have it- but it’s not required.

      Hi Tiffany, Thanks for that, I (WE) have rosemary but I will try it without the rosemary first. Your recipes are amazing, your ONE PAN SPANISH CHICKEN AND RICE is delish, we use your recipes for one pan cooking when away in the motorhome (RV), and it saves a lot ofwashing up too, we are having the SKILLET CHICKEN IN CREAMY SUN DRIED TOMATO SAUCE tonight, (at home). Thanks again, Johnny, Scotland.

        You are SO awesome, John! I am so happy and excited to hear that you’ve had such good success with my one pan meals! Thank you for sharing

Would i be able to cook this recipe i a Slow cooker?

    Hey Mel! I think it could work. I haven’t had a chance yet to try this out in a crock pot but it’s on my must-try list! If you give it a go before I do, please let me know how it turns out!

Delicious, but my cheese went into clumps? I grated fresh parmesan, maybe I should have used the container of dry parmesan?

    Hi Linda! Next time make sure you’re grating your parmesan small enough. Cheese that’s grated in large sheets or thick shreds will clump, because a larger amount of surface area allows for more cling potential. Try to use the small, prickly side of your grater to finely grate the cheese! Or in a pinch, it might work with the dry parmesan- I just know I personally prefer fresh just about every time!

    Thanks for your feedback, Cheryl. I bet the addition of sautéed mushrooms was delicious!

This recipe is the exact reason why women need to just stay out of the kitchen! This recipe will fail and also ruin the pan you cook it in because you do not boil PARMESAN cheese you idiota!!

5 stars
this was great over rotisserie chicken (COSTCO) and noodles in a casserole. i doubled the sauce recipe, and used 4c of chicken and 1/2# of pasta. assembled on Sunday and cooken on Tuesday. 40 minutes at 350 – perfect!!

    Oh my goodness- this is fantastic!! Great job, Trish! Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

Love, love, love

Can you SUBSTITUTE the Parmesan for a different cheese? Maybe mozZarella

    I suppose you could- but it will change the flavor somewhat so just be aware of that!

5 stars
This is so easy to make and it is amazing! I made it for company one night and they were groaning while eating it! They wanted the recipe, it was that good.

    Way to go, Rhianna!! I’m glad to hear that you and all your guests enjoyed this recipe!

Hi Tiffany! I have made this dish several times. it is always yummy but I have to say it never looks like your beautiful photos. I have used more chicken with the same amount of ingredients and the sauce is always runny. the parmesan cheese always thickens but becomes gummy at the bottom of the pan. I am a seasoned cook, but the results are always the same visually! tastes great tho!

    Hi Wendy! Happy to hear you love this dish as much as I do! Are you using sun dried tomatoes packed in oil? If so, I suggest draining them well, giving them a good rinse in the sink, and then patting them dry with a paper towel before using them for the recipe. As you noted, the flavor doesn’t change really but the sauce can break when the oily tomatoes are added – I’ve found that the rinse and pat dry method yields a creamier, smoother sauce. Hope this helps!

5 stars
Awesome! DEFINITELY will be a new REGULAR FOR dinner! You could dRink the sauce! iT is so good!

    So happy to hear that you enjoyed this recipe so much, Lori!

easy delicious recipe! I added some mushrooms, green beans,and sliced red onions in addition to the called for ingredients.

    Yum! Sounds delicious!

Oh my goodness, is this fantastic! I haven’t really enjoyed the sun dried tomatoes but thought I’d try. The sauce is so yummy … I added a splash of white wine and used pheasant. Thank you for this wonderful recipe…I highly recommend!!

    Awesome job!!!
