Super Easy Marry Me Chicken

Marry me what? Relax, this post isn't about how to propose to a chicken. No, Marry Me Chicken is a recipe that's currently trending BIG TIME. Chicken so good, it's sure to elicit a marriage proposal!

Marry Me Chicken, a creamy cheesy chicken dish made with sundried tomatoes. I added extra veggies and a secret ingredient to create my own version.

You’ll Need:


  • 4 Chicken thighs (bone-in with skin)
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. white pepper
  • 1 tsp. avocado oil (or favorite oil)
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 3 cloves garlic (slivered)
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ½ cup artichoke hearts (chopped)
  • 3 T. sun-dried tomatoes (chopped)
  • 8 kalamata olives (sliced in half)
  • 2 tsp. capers (optional)
  • ¾ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • ¾ cup half and half (or heavy cream)
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 T. Italian parsley or basil (chopped)
  • ¼ cup feta cheese (crumbled)

Instructions:

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a deep pan and brown chicken thighs, fat side down first, for four minutes on each side, or until browned. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside.
  3. Drain chicken fat from pan and put 2 tablespoon of the fat back in, or use more avocado oil. Sauté onion and mushrooms for one minutes. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds.
  4. Deglaze with chicken broth, and wine. Add artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, capers, and red pepper flakes. Simmer for five minutes over low to heat.\
  5. Add cream and parmesan cheese. Return chicken thighs to pan, skin side up. Cover and simmer for an additional 20 minutes, or until chicken is completely cooked.
  6. Make fresh pasta using the recipe on this blog, or prepare four servings of store-bought pasta.
  7. Divide pasta between four plates. Smother with sauce, add chicken, and sprinkle with feta chunks and chopped fresh parsley or basil.
