Marry Me Chicken

Written by

“Marry Me Chicken” is a popular recipe known for its rich, creamy sauce and tender chicken. Here’s a simple recipe for you to try:


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 6-7 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add minced garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, until fragrant.
  4. Pour in the chicken broth, scraping the bottom of the skillet to deglaze and incorporate any browned bits. Allow the broth to simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Reduce the heat to medium-low and stir in the heavy cream, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach. Let the mixture simmer for another 2-3 minutes until the spinach wilts and the sauce thickens slightly.
  6. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet, nestling them into the sauce. Spoon some of the sauce over the chicken.
  7. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the chicken and sauce. Cover the skillet and let it simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes until the cheese melts and the chicken is heated through.
  8. Garnish with chopped fresh basil leaves before serving.

Serve the Marry Me Chicken hot with your favorite side dishes, such as pasta, rice, or crusty bread, and enjoy this delicious and comforting meal!
