Creamy Sun Dried Tomato ChickenPrint This
- 1 ½ pounds boneless chicken breast
- ½ cup all purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ½ cup yellow onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1/3 cup sundried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and sliced into this slices
- ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 cup chicken broth
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup fresh basil, sliced
- ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
Slice the chicken breasts into thin slices and pound slightly, forming thin cutlets.
In a shallow pie plate combine the flour with the salt and pepper.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium low heat. Dip each of the chicken cutlets into the flour mixture, coating completely on both sides. Add the coated cutlets to the skillet and brown on both sides. This will take 2-3 minutes per sides.
Remove the browned cutlets to a plate.
Add the sundried tomatoes, garlic and onions to the pan. Add a bit more olive oil if needed. Saute over medium low heat until the onions are translucent but not browned, about 3-4 minutes.
Add the chicken broth and stir well, scraping up any browned bits. Add the crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce to a low simmer. Add the cream and the basil and let the mixture simmer until it starts to thicken. Stir in the parmesan cheese.
Return the chicken to the pan and heat through.
The easiest way to slice the basil is to take several leaves of the same size and roll them together. Make thin slices all along the roll.
