I came across this recipe on Epicurious while looking for an easy and quick chicken dinner. This was tasty and very easy to put together. The only thing I would do differently the next time I make this is dredge the chicken in some flour before putting it into the pan. I didn’t have basil, as the recipe called for and used whatever I had in the fridge. The mix of parsley, mint and tarragon paired nicely with the chicken and sun-dried tomatoes. If you’re looking for an easy chicken dinner, look no further!
- 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken thigh (trimmed)
- salt and pepper to season
- 1 tablespoon of oil from the oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
- 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 2/3 cup of white wine (I used a Sauvignon Blanc)
- 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup of oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and sliced
- 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh Italian parsley + extra for garnish
- 1/2 tablespoon of chopped fresh mint
- 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh tarragon
Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper. In a large sauté pan over medium high heat, add oil and chicken to the skillet and cook until brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate; set aside. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds, be sure not to burn the garlic. Add white wine, cream and tomatoes. Stir to combine and bring the mixture to a boil. Slide chicken back into the skillet and cover. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until chicken is just cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a serving plate. Add parsley, mint and tarragon to the sauce. Increase the heat and boil until sauce thickens enough to coat the spoon, about 1-2 minutes. Check the sauce for seasoning then spoon over the chicken. Sprinkle extra chopped parsley on top and serve.

What a gourmet and delicious sounding (and looking) dish. YUM.

I love tarragon with chicken, and sun dried tomatoes too. Looks so bright and cheerful!
I am always looking for non boring chicken dishes and this recipe looks like it falls into that category.
This is my kind of dinner! A little creamy and with the sun-dried tomatoes? Which I happen to have a jar of right now… sounds delicious!
This looks fantastic! One never has too many recipes for chicken and this one looks like a perfect one. I’m loving the tarragon addition and wow, the flavor of cream must be amazing! 😉
This is such a cozy, comforting looking meal, Anne! I love sun dried tomatoes this time of year. That means I can still enjoy my favorite veg (fruit?) all year round. What a lovely dish!
Sun dried tomatoes are my love ❤ this rocks!
Mmm…this looks so good with that creamy sauce! I’ve learn to appreciate sun dried tomatoes so I’m all for this whole thing!
Absolutely fantastic looking chicken dish, Anne. Thanks for the tips and putting this together, it looks really good!!
Your dish looks amazing! The sun-dried tomato cream sounds delicious. I’m always looking for simple chicken dishes to make for dinner. Thanks for sharing! 😀
The sun-dried tomatoes really came through in this dish. I love how you can pretty much use chicken in anything and come up with a million different meals. The cream in here is subtle, but I love that. It’s just enough to give the sauce some body, but it’s not too much where you feel like it’s unhealthy or heavy. I want to eat this again!
Great shot! I’m always looking for new chicken dishes to try 🙂
Oh, how I adore sun-dried tomatoes! This is a must make as soon as possible chicken dish. Cannot wait to try it and I love how you made it flavorful and creamy with the white wine and cream. Yes, please!
This looks SO good! I have a ton of success with Epicurious recipes, so I’m not surprised this is another good recipe. YUM!
I love your version of this dish, Anne. I want to make this for the boys asap. I even have all of the ingredients already…yay! (=
Looks mighty comforting!! I love sun-dried tomato. Adds a ton of flavor to the dish 🙂
Looks absolutely wonderful! Making me hungry now!
Gosh, this looks like a nice, flavorful dish that’s pretty easy to make. What’s not to like? Nothing, which means I need to make this! Thanks so much.
What an amazing weeknight dinner recipe. I love finding those great new recipes on Epicurious – I can get lost in there. Must try this in the dinner rotation!
Mouthwatering! I will need some rice to soak up that sauce. Yum… Trying this soon!
As much as I love basil Anne, I have to say the combination of fresh herbs you had on hand sounds so much more pleasing. I’m certain my husband would love this, especially with some lovely bread to soak up all of those juices. So glad to see someone cooking with sundried tomatoes (they seem to have fallen out of favor & i just adore them). You chose a terrific dish to share! 🙂
wow, it looks like a michelin star chef dish…..
lucky me saving my homemade sun dried cherry tomato for such this recipe….
This does look so good! I love how intense sun dried tomatoes are. I mean, the fresh ones are spectacular but sun dried ones just give such a kick. 🙂 I’m pinning this for later!
I like easy dinners for the busy weeknights. This looks oh so amazing, Anne! I really have to try this soon. I have a pack of frozen chicken thighs so I’m already part way to having the needed ingredients. Pinned!
This looks so colorful & delicious !! I’m always afraid to add the mint to a savory dish but – if you say it’s good – I’m adding the mint !! ; o )
ohhhhh so yummy!
All that is missing is a nice glass of chardonnay. Beautiful dish Anne!
It seems like I’m always looking for a quick and easy dinner! This looks delish! Beautiful colors. 🙂
This creamy chicken meal looks like the perfect dinner dish!
Sun dried tomatoes are a strategic ingredient, making any sauce rich and decadent. Love your yummy pics!
Love this recipe, have oven roasted tomatoes in the freezer, I think they would make good substitute for the sun-dried ones.
I’m always looking for easy chicken dinners, Anne, and this one looks fantastic!
Anything with sundried tomatoes and cream makes me hungry! This looks just lovely. A great new chicken dish to add to the rotation.
I absolutely love chicken thighs and this dish looks so tasty. Yum! 🙂
Oh my, I love this! It is definitely my kind of meal – will be trying this in the near future – pinned!
Love easy chicken dinners and especially anything with sun-dried tomatoes! Looks and sounds so delicious Anne – especially with all those fresh herbs 🙂
Wow does this look wonderful. I can’t wait to try it. I’ve pinned it…maybe next week I can get to it!
OMG Anne! That looks fabulously divine!!! Really!
