Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 25 min

Serves: 4


Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

4 medium chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, about 2 pounds total

2 teaspoons kosher salt

½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup chicken stock

1 teaspoon chicken flavor “Better Than Bouillon” or 1chicken bouillon cube

½ cup parmesan cheese, divided

1 (7 oz) jar sun-dried tomatoes, drained, roughly chopped, about ½ cup

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional

1/4 cup basil leaves, thinly sliced

Cooked pasta or mashed potatoes, optional


Directions:

In a large skillet, set over medium-high, heat the olive oil until glistening.

Season the chicken breasts with 1 teaspoon salt and the pepper.

Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until golden on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Turn and cook on the other side until golden, about 5 minutes longer. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

Add the garlic to the same skillet and cook until fragrant about 1 minute. Stir in heavy cream, chicken stock, bouillon, ¼ cup parmesan cheese, sun dried tomatoes, Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, stirring until fully combined.

Add the chicken back into the skillet. Allow to cook for 5 more minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken breasts reaches 165°F with an instant read thermometer.

Serve topped with fresh basil, remaining cheese and remaining red pepper flakes. Enjoy on its own or over pasta or mashed potatoes if desired.
