You know that Mr. Bejelly is picky. If you could hear my voice when I saw that, you would know exactly what I mean.

His first nibble of this didn’t look good.  Like I was thinking that it was not going to pass the test and that The Little and I would get to eat all of it and the next thing I see is him reaching for seconds.

The last time I tried to cook sun dried tomatoes it was a nightmare.  They were hard little bits and I didn’t see why anyone in their right mind would want to eat them but technology must have changed because these were juicy and tender.

Why the Recipe Works

It’s so simple and can be made in less than 30 minutes.  It’s easy to make dairy-free and it’s less than 10 ingredients. 


What you’ll need for this Recipe:

  • Coconut oil
  • Garlic 
  • Sun dried Tomatoes
  • Coconut cream or Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

How to Make this Creamy Chicken with Sun dried Tomato Recipe

  1. In a large pan over medium heat, melt coconut oil, add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

  2.  Add the sun dried tomatoes and chicken broth; increase to medium heat

  3. and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the tomatoes are tender, roughly 10 minutes.

  4. Add in the cream and whisk. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat until the sauce is thick enough to coat a spoon. Remove from the stove and set aside.

  5. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides. In a separate pan over medium high heat and warm the coconut oil. Add in the chicken breasts and brown, roughly 4 minutes per side.

  6. Add in the cream mixture and let simmer for 8 to 10 minutes and serve over zucchini noodles.


Notes and Variations

  • You can easily substitute the dairy for any non-dairy milk
  • You can remove the sun-dried tomatoes if you you don’t like them.

    I’m getting so irritated by your bait and switch posts where you promise a recipe then say only if you buy my book that I am seriously thinking about unsubscribing to your posts. Cut it out! If your post is just going to be another ad for your cookbook, please, be honest enough to say so up front. I’m fine with you wanting to sell your book, just be honest that this post is only another ad.

      Hi Linda, thanks for you comment hun. I understand that you are frustrated but I do owe it to the people who have supported my work by pre-ordering the book to share the recipes I am creating every week. They made the purchase based on faith and it’s my duty to post these weekly. I will be done with the book by Janaury so you won’t have to worry about 30 Minute Paleo Eats Recipe updates after then.
