Marry Me Chicken recipe

Prep: 15 min | Cook: 20 min | Yield: 6 servings


  • 8 ounces angel hair or vermicelli pasta*
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth, divided
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup freshly shaved Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 (6.3 ounce) jar sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Season the water generously with salt. Add the pasta and cook until al dente according to the package directions. Drain and set aside. Keep warm.
  2. Cut chicken breasts horizontally to make two chicken cutlets.
  3. In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, salt and pepper. Coat all four pieces of chicken with this mixture.
  4. Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the coated chicken breasts and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  6. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until fragrant.
  7. Stir in the chicken broth and whipping cream, deglazing the pot as you stir.
  8. Then add the Parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, oregano and thyme. Stir together over low to medium heat.
  9. Add the sun dried tomatoes to the skillet and stir until the sauce is well combined. Continue stirring and on a low simmer for 5 minutes as the sauce thickens and bubbles.
  10. Add the chicken to the skillet for 10 more minutes, spooning the sauce over the chicken, until heated through.
  11. Garnish with freshly chopped basil, and serve warm over your favorite pasta.


* You can use any type of pasta you like or even rice or potatoes.
