  • Oven
  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife optional
  • Paper towels
  • Large cast-iron skillet or similar oven-safe skillet
  • Tongs
  • Plate
  • Whisk or silicone spatula
  • cheese grate
  • internal meat thermometer
  • Spoon or small ladle


For the Chicken

  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts see Notes
  • salt to taste
  • freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or other neutral oil

For the Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • ¾ cup chicken broth see Notes
  • ½ cup heavy cream at or close to room temperature
  • ⅓ cup grated fresh parmesan cheese at room temperature, see Notes
  • ½-1 cup sun-dried tomatoes see Notes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes see Notes
  • fresh basil chiffonaded, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit. Adjust racks as needed so skillet can sit in center of oven. Place chicken breasts on cutting board and trim as needed, then pat chicken breasts dry on all sides with paper towels.
  2. Generously season tops of chicken breasts with salt and black pepper. Flip chicken breasts over and generously season other side with salt and black pepper. Set chicken aside.
  3. Heat cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. When skillet is warm, add olive oil and swirl pan to cover entire surface with oil.
  4. When oil is hot and shimmery, place seasoned chicken breasts in skillet. Sear chicken breasts 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly golden in spots. Flip chicken breasts over and sear 3 to 4 minutes more. Carefully transfer seared chicken breasts to plate and set aside. Note: chicken should not be fully cooked-through at this point.
  5. Return skillet to stovetop and reduce heat to medium-low. Let temperature of skillet reduce, then add minced garlic. Sauté garlic 1 to 2 minutes, or until garlic is just fragrant.
  6. Add broth to skillet and stir, making sure to scrape up any browned bits of chicken or garlic that may be stuck to bottom of skillet.
  7. Move skillet to cool stovetop burner and let skillet cool slightly, then add heavy cream. Whisk or stir gently to incorporate heavy cream into chicken broth. Once liquids are blended, sprinkle grated parmesan into mixture and gently stir until cheese has melted.
  8. Return skillet to hot burner and continue stirring sauce mixture 1 minute or so, while skillet returns to temperature. Add sun-dried tomatoes, dried oregano, and red pepper flakes to cream sauce and stir gently to incorporate ingredients. Taste sauce and adjust salt, pepper, oregano, and/or red pepper flakes as desired.
