½ c. chopped sun-dried tomatoes (3ounces, 83grams)

How to make Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato and Mushroom Cream Sauce

Step 1: With salt and pepper, season both sides of the chicken breasts.

Step 2: In a very hot pan with a tbsp oil, saute the chicken breasts until golden brown. Flip the chicken and continue to cook the other side until golden brown. When done, remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 3: Add another tbsp of oil in the same pan. Add in the onion and saute for about a minute over high heat.

Step 4: Add the sliced mushrooms to the onions. Cover the pan and cook the mushrooms, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes until the mushrooms have released their liquid.

Step 5: Uncover and cook for another 5 minutes until the liquid evaporates and the mushrooms are golden brown.

Step 6: Into the pan, add in the sundried tomatoes, minced garlic, dried herbs, and bouillon cubes. Cook for a minute more, breaking the bouillon cubes up.

Step 7: Add in the cream, pour in a cup of water and allow to simmer for about 2 minutes.

Step 8: Add in the parmesan cheese and cook a minute further until melted.

Step 9: Turn the heat off, then stir in the basil. To taste, season with salt and pepper.

Step 10: Add the chicken breasts back to the pan and spoon over the sauce. Cook for several minutes until the chicken breasts are done inside.
