Looking for a tasty creamy paleo chicken recipe? This dairy-free cream sauce is silky perfection and works wonderfully with the tart sun dried tomatoes. Spoon over grilled chicken for the perfect healthy lunch or dinner.
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
- 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
In a large pan over medium heat, melt coconut oil, add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Add the sun dried tomatoes and chicken broth; increase to medium heat
and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the tomatoes are tender, roughly 10 minutes.
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.
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.
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.
