Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

Chicken with sun-dried tomato sauce is one of my family's favourite chicken dishes. It is quick and easy to prepare, a great dish to whip up after coming home from work. Serve with pasta or rice and a fresh tossed salad for a fantastic meal!

  8. We made this last night and it was delicious! We did lighten it up a bit this time by cutting back on the butter, and replacing about 75% of the cream with chicken stock, but we will definitely make the full cream version sometime in the future! Thanks for the inspiration :)
