Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Chicken

Pack A Ton Of Flavor With Sun Dried Tomatoes

I first fell in love with sun dried tomatoes when I made this Creamy Parmesan Pasta Salad. The flavor boost they gave that salad was so incredible. They took a regular summer salad and made it special.

The great thing about using sun dried tomatoes packed in oil is you get a lot of delicious flavor and not a lot of carbs. This Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Recipe has only 3 net carbs per serving.

Tips and Substitutions

  • Save money and buy chicken breasts instead of cutlets. Then, cut the chicken into cutlets on your own.
  • Substitute Sun Dried Tomatoes that are not packed in oil. This will reduce the amount of fat in the recipe which is not necessary for Keto but if your not keto this is a good way to reduce the fat.
  • Use a dry white wine such as a buttery chardonnay. Pinot grigio or Sauvignon Blanc will work also if that is what you have on hand.
  • Substitute chicken broth for the white wine.
  • Use light cream in place of heavy cream. 
  • Sour cream can be used in place of heavy cream.
