Keto Sun-dried Tomato Chicken

This is the sun-dried tomato of garlic parmesan chicken and you’re going to love the variation. Parmesan, garlic, and Sun-dried tomato makes the perfect cream sauce. You’ve got yourself a delicious Keto Sun-dried Tomato Chicken which is creamy and going to be loved by the whole family with the addition of skillet grilled chicken.

Using lots of garlic is the secret to making this chicken super flavorful. We usually use at least 3-4 cloves but if you’re not a fan of garlic then you should be using at least 2 cloves. We use heavy cream which is a great keto option For the base, I like to use heavy cream (great keto option) but half & half or you can even substitute half the heavy cream with chicken broth or water. You might also want to add baby spinach to the sauce which wil give it a cool color and texture but that’s completely optional.

To serve:

If you want to make it a complete “one pan” meal then you might add 2-3 cups of cooked pasta into the saucepan and combine it well with the sauce or serve the chicken on top of the pasta.
For low carb or keto: In a microwave steam zucchini noodles for 2 minutes on high and serve the chicken on the zucchini noodles. The chicken can also be served with a side of steamed vegetables.
