  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • Additional basil or parsley, for garnishing


  1. Prepare the Chicken: Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Cook the Chicken: Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  3. Create the Sauce: In the same skillet, add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant. Deglaze with chicken broth, scraping up the tasty bits from the bottom. Stir in heavy cream, sun-dried tomatoes, Parmesan, red pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning. Simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
  4. Combine: Return chicken to the skillet, spooning the sauce over the breasts. Let simmer until the chicken is thoroughly heated through.
  5. Serve: Garnish with fresh basil and serve hot. Delight in every creamy, dreamy bite!


  • For an extra touch of flavor, try adding a splash of white wine to the sauce when adding the chicken broth.
  • This dish pairs beautifully with garlic mashed potatoes or a simple arugula salad.
