I saw this chicken recipe online and had to give it a try, and gosh was it worth it! Marry Me Chicken is creamy, tomato-y, and all around delicious. Recipe adapted from Little Sunny Kitchen.


  • 3 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thin cutlets
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon thyme
  •  cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, chopped


  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour and shake off any excess.
  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil and melt the butter on medium heat. Swirl pan to coat with oil and butter evenly.
  3. Brown the chicken (do not overcrowd and work in batches if needed) for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer onto a plate, cover, and set aside.
  4. Saute the garlic for a minute or until it's fragrant. Add the chicken broth, and deglaze the pan scraping any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
  5. Adjust the heat to medium-low, and add the heavy cream and the parmesan cheese to the skillet. Allow the sauce to simmer for a couple of minutes, then season with red pepper flakes, thyme, and oregano.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to your taste, add the sundried tomatoes then put the chicken back in the sauce and let the sauce simmer and thicken for a few more minutes.
  7. Garnish with chopped fresh basil leaves and serve warm over mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice.
