Chicken with Sun Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

I am a sucker for quick and easy meals with a rich flavor that taste like it took a long time to cook. This is one that I made up from spare ingredients mostly left over from other meals. You may notice there are no measurements in this recipe because it is very free-form. Use as much or as little of any ingredient that you have available. Or even better, substitute or include ingredients you have. For example some fresh sliced basil and a tiny splash of fresh lemon juice brings a wonderful boost to the flavor when added right before serving. Or better yet, use the Lemon Basil pasta available from Trader Joe's.

Ingredients

 chicken breast, boneless, skinless (1 per person)
 Olive Oil to coat pan
 butter
 Shallots, chopped fine
 Garlic, peeled and chopped fine
 Mushrooms, canned or fresh, sliced
 Sun Dried Tomatoes packed in oil
 Chicken stock or fruity white wine
 Half and Half or Cream
 pasta or other starch of choice, cooked

Directions

If you are serving this dish over pasta cook it according to the package directions.

In between sheets of wet plastic wrap or in a large zip-top bag pound the chicken breast to about 1/2 to 1/4 inch thick. The goal is to have an even thickness. Thinner cooks faster. Add olive oil to a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Use enough to coat the bottom of the pan. I also add butter for extra flavor and wait until the butter completely melts and stops bubbling before adding the chicken.

Sauté the chicken until done. Depending on the thickness it should be done by the time the outside starts to get some brown color. Remove chicken from pan, cover and set aside. Sauté the shallots for a minute or so until tender. Add garlic and sauté one more minute. Add mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes and heat through being careful not to burn them. Deglaze the pan with a little chicken stock or other flavorful liquid being careful to scrape up all the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Add enough cream while stirring to make a rich sauce and reduce heat to simmer. Slice the chicken across the grain in bite sized pieces, add to sauce. Simmer uncovered stirring occasionally until sauce is reduced to your desired thickness.

Serve over egg noodles, fettuccine or your favorite pasta. I like the Lemon Basil pasta from Trader Joe's.

Note

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
