Braised Chicken in Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

Definitely make extra sauce, bc. it goes really well over white rice or pasta, or quinoa, even without the chicken. This might even go well with pork instead of chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and pat dry chicken, sprinkly with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat Oil from tomatoes in a heavy skillet, over medium heat.
  3. Add chicken to skillet and saute until golden, about 4 minutes per side.

I thought I had already made & reviewed this, and I couldn't understand where my review went. After tasting, however, I realized it must have been a different recipe. I really liked the flavor of this, including the basil and the peppers, which added interesting contrast to the tomatoes. The only difficulty I had was that the sauce took quite a bit longer than 5 minutes to thicken. I served with Recipe #155018.

This is quick, easy and truly delicious! I'm on Atkins, and this is low-carb if you serve it with steamed veggies. I made mashed potatoes for DH with this, and he loved it.

I love this recipe. However, I do not use the peppers because I think it overpowers the other delicate flavors. The fresh basil makes the dish. I also top with shredded parm.
