What’s so special about this recipe?

The beauty of this recipe is that it requires only one frying pan, used for both searing and baking the chicken. This one-pan dinner is prepared in 20 minutes, then bakes to perfection in just 25 minutes more. Sun-dried tomatoes add tang that harmonizes well with the salty Parmesan cheese and richness of the sauce.

Our tips for making this weeknight dinner

Sear the chicken at medium-high heat, add all of the ingredients for the sauce, and cook until the chicken is completely cooked through—the time will vary depending on the thickness of your chicken breast.

The original recipe called for first removing the chicken from the frying pan and preparing the sauce separately, however we allowed the chicken to stay in the pan while preparing the sauce to both make things quicker, and tastier. You can use dehydrated sun-dried tomatoes but we highly recommend jarred sun-dried tomatoes in oil.
