these are ingredients needed to make healthier marry me chicken

Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken breasts (about 2 large)
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons light butter (I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup fat free half and half
  • 1/3 cup sundried tomatoes, drained

Instructions

    Begin by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.

    In a shallow dish, combine the flour, poultry seasoning, dried parsley, onion powder, and garlic powder. Dredge each chicken breast in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Reserve excess flour.

    Heat the light butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once melted and hot, add the dredged chicken breasts to the skillet. Cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

    In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add in remaining flour from dredging and cook for one minute.

    Pour in the chicken broth and beef broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Allow the broth to simmer for about 5 minutes, reducing slightly.

    Stir in the fat-free half and half, followed by the sun-dried tomatoes. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken slightly.

    Return the cooked chicken breasts to the skillet, spooning some of the sauce over the top. Allow the chicken to heat through for a few minutes.

    Once the chicken is heated through and the sauce has reached your desired consistency, remove the skillet from the heat.

    Serve the Marry Me Chicken hot, garnished with additional parsley if desired. Enjoy!
