ingredients for the creamy marry me chicken recipe

  • Chicken breast.

    You will need organic boneless chicken breasts. The low-in-fat protein source is rich in niacin, selenium, and phosphorus.
  • Basil leaves.

    You will need a good amount of fresh herbs. The basil harmonizes perfectly with the sundried tomato, garlic, and onion, adding flavor to the fantastic dish.
  • Onion.

    I prefer red onion, but you can use any onion you have in hand. The red onion is beautiful, but red and yellow onions add the right amount of flavor to the dish.
  • Garlic.

    This recipe contains a lot of garlic, so if you are a garlic girl or garlic boy, this is the recipe you’ve ever wanted.
  • Lemon.

    Just a sprinkle of lemon juice gives the dish an extra kick of freshness.
  • Sundried tomatoes.

    The stars of this amazing creamy chicken recipe. You can use sundried tomatoes, which are stored in oil, or dried sundried tomatoes.
  • Heavy cream.

    I use heavy cream, which contains 30 % fat. The cheese and heavy cream make this amazing 20 minutes meal super creamy.
  • Parmesan cheese.

    High quality.
  • Spices.
