Creamy Sun-dried Tomato Chicken (Low-Carb/Keto)

Chicken cooked in a creamy garlic parmesan and sun-dried tomato sauce all in one pan in under 30 minutes. Serve with zucchini noodles, veggies or a salad for a low-carb protein packed lunch or dinner! Creamy Garlic Parmesan Sun-dried Tomato ChickenA few years ago I shared my favorite garlic parmesan chicken and today I’m sharing this sun-dried tomato version of it. Sun-dried tomato, garlic, and parmesan make the BEST cream sauce and with the addition of skillet grilled chicken, you’ve got yourself a dish that is to die for!

The trick to making this chicken super flavorful is using lots of garlic. I usually opt in for at least 3-4 cloves but if you’re not a fan of garlic I suggest using at least 2 cloves. For the base, I like to use heavy cream (great keto option) but half & half or substituting half the heavy cream with chicken broth or water will also work. I also like to add in a cup or two or baby spinach to the sauce for some added color and texture but that’s completely optional.

To serve: You can add 2-3 cups of cooked pasta into the saucepan and mix it through with the sauce for a complete “one pan” meal or serve the chicken on top of the pasta.

For low carb or keto: Steam zucchini noodles in the microwave for 2 minutes on high and serve the chicken on the zucchini noodles. You can also serve the chicken with a side of steamed vegetables or greens. Creamy Garlic Parmesan Sun-dried Tomato Chicken

    when do you add the 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese?

    We loved this recipe, but I made it without the cheese because I wasn’t sure when to add it. we ate this over broccoli, delicious!

      Thanks for the 5 stars! I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe even without the parmesan cheese, Nikki. The parmesan cheese is added with the spinach and heavy cream!
