Marry Me Chicken
 

With a name like that, how can you say no?! This creamy, juicy, full-of-flavor chicken is the perfect go-to recipe to whip up for your special someone for a cozy date night in.


Ingredients

3 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut into cutlets
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 teaspoon chili flakes
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/3 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves


Directions:
First, season the chicken generously with salt and pepper. Then, submerge in flour and shake off any excess.


Heat the olive oil and melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.


Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until you have a nice golden brown color on each side, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and cover with foil.


Add the garlic to the same skillet and sauté until fragrant. Add the chicken stock, scraping any brown bits that got stuck to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.


Turn the heat down to medium-low and add the heavy cream, followed by the parmesan, to the skillet. Allow the sauce to simmer for a few minutes. Then, add the chili flakes, thyme, and oregano. Add more salt and pepper, to taste. Return the chicken to the skillet with the sauce and simmer for a few more minutes, until the sauce has thickened.


Garnish with chopped basil and serve over pasta or rice!
