Recipe by the Fuudi Kitchen, Suzie Mulligan & Robin Holland

Servings: 6

Prep Time: 10 minutes 

Cook Time: 20 minutes 

Total Time: 30 minutes


2 T. olive oil

3-4 large chicken breasts, slice lengthwise into two cutlets

All-purpose flour for dredging

Salt & pepper

1 T. butter

1 T. sundried tomato oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup chicken broth

½ tsp oregano

½ tsp thyme

1 tsp red pepper flakes

½ cup sundried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped

¾ cup heavy cream

½ cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated

8-10 Fresh basil leaves, cut into a chiffonade 


1. Season chicken generously with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour, shaking off any excess.

2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. 

3. Brown chicken (avoid overcrowding and work in batches if needed) for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

4. Add the butter and sundried tomato oil to the pan, then sauté garlic for a minute until fragrant, being careful not to scorch it. Add chicken stock to deglaze, scraping any bits from the pan with a wooden spoon.

5. Add the thyme, oregano, red pepper flakes, and sundried tomatoes, and bring to a simmer.

5. Adjust the heat to medium-low, then add heavy cream and Parmesan cheese. Allow the sauce to simmer for a couple of minutes, then season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Return the chicken to the sauce and let it simmer and thicken for a few more minutes.

7. Garnish with chopped fresh basil leaves and serve.


  • Serve with pasta, rice or polenta.

  • We thought adding a few handfuls of baby spinach at the end with the chicken would be a nice touch and a great way to include nutritious greens. Just toss into the sauce and let it wilt.

  • Chicken thighs can be substituted, but they will take a bit longer to cook.
