Marry Me Chicken
1 pack of chicken tenderloins or 3-4 chicken breasts
Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1-2 tablespoons butter (just enough for browning chicken)
1 cup heavy cream
Splash of chicken broth (about 1/2 cup)
Splash of white wine for de-glazing pan, optional
2 heaping handfuls of cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup Parmesan
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Heat cast iron skillet (or other oven-safe skillet) over medium high heat.
Season chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add to skillet with butter and olive oil and brown each side. Once browned, set aside.
In the same pan, add minced garlic and red pepper flakes if adding. Let cook for a minute or two. If you're de-glazing the pan with wine, add once garlic is fragrant.
Next, add heavy cream and splash of chicken stock. Stir to combine and then add tomatoes. I also added some sliced red onion to mine because I had some that needed to be used up! Bring to a boil. Once boiling, add Parmesan cheese and stir.
Add chicken back in the pan and finish in the oven for 17 to 20 minutes.
Serve with plain pasta noodles or rice and veggies!
