Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

I’ve this recipe sitting around for quite some time, but I haven’t bit the bullet and gave it a go. This recipe is really a hybrid of three different recipes, I picked and chosed and made it my own way. I highly suggest that if you are looking to make something, unless you are baking. Add a little of this, take out that ingredient… It will turn out, I promise.

 Anyway, I am a freak for sauces over things.. Pork chops, chicken breasts, fish. Especially cream sauces. Honestly, heavy cream.. you can’t go wrong. This sauce was no exception, it turned out delicious and was the perfect compliment to this chicken. I was surprised that my husband even likes this, although he did mention to me “it doesn’t taste like anything”. I guess sun-dried tomatoes aren’t his thing. I personally, loved this. It’s light, it’s got a hint of sun-dried tomato flavor, and it’s actually a fairly quick meal.
