Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

After eating this meal for supper, I looked at my husband and said, “Yup. Definitely keeping this recipe,” and by the way he went back for seconds, I think he agreed. 

Easy to make with  an absolutely delicious flavor, this chicken dish will taste like you’ve been in the kitchen for hours when  you can really get the whole meal done in under one. The creamy but not too creamy sauce is packed with spices to take your chicken from basic to BAM! I recommend you keep a few slices of bread handy because you will want to scrape up the sauce. It is that good!

Start thawing your chicken, because here we go.
