Braised Chicken Breasts in Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
- 4 chicken breasts (with skin and bone)
- 2 tablespoons Filippo Berio Pure Olive Oil
- 6 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 1 cup dry white wine
- ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ¼ cup thinly sliced basil, divided
- 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. In a heavy cast-iron pan, heat the olive oil on medium. Add the chicken. Brown it well on both sides. Add the garlic. Sauté for 1 minute. Remove the chicken from the pan, but keep the pieces warm.
Add the white wine and tomatoes to the pan. Mix well. Add the heavy cream. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Add the chicken back to the sauce. Cover the pan. Cook on low heat. Simmer until the chicken is cooked.
Add half the basil and all the oregano to the pan. Mix well. Quickly bring the sauce to a boil to thicken it.
Remove the chicken and place pieces on plates. Remove the sauce from the heat, add the remaining basil to the pan and then toss. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Spoon the sauce over the chicken.
