Marry Me Chicken

 


Ingredients:


For the Chicken:


6 Chicken Thighs

Seasonings (to your liking): Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Cajun Seasoning, Pepper, Paprika, Italian Herbs

Olive Oil

For the Sauce:


2 tbsp Butter

2 Tbsp Fresh Minced Garlic

1/2 cup Chicken Broth

1/3 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Sun-dried Tomatoes (amount to preference)

1 Tbsp White Cooking Wine

1/2 cup Fresh Shredded Parmesan or Italian Cheese

Salt, Pepper, Italian Herbs (to taste)

Preparation:


Seasoning the Chicken: Generously season the chicken thighs with onion powder, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, pepper, paprika, and Italian herbs.


Pan Searing: In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sear the chicken thighs on both sides until golden brown. Once seared, transfer them to a separate baking dish.


Making the Sauce: In the same skillet, melt butter and add minced garlic. Cook for about 3 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth, add sun-dried tomatoes, and heavy whipping cream. Stir in the seasoning and let the sauce simmer.


Adding the Cheese: Gradually add the shredded cheese to the sauce, stirring constantly to ensure it melts and blends into the sauce smoothly.


Combining and Baking: Pour the creamy sauce over the seared chicken thighs in the baking dish. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-35 minutes.


Serving: Serve the baked chicken over a bed of creamy mashed potatoes for a complete and satisfying meal.
