Marry Me Chicken
March 28, 2023
Have you ever tasted a dish so decadent, so uncompromisingly delicious that you practically wanted to marry it? Or have you been on the receiving end of a home-cooked meal so amazing you wanted to kiss the chef—and maybe you did? We’re not sure which interpretation of the concept spawned the viral sensation that is “Marry Me Chicken,” but one thing is certain: This dish is crazy good!
In the original recipe, plain-Jane chicken breasts are jazzed up with a sassy sauce of salty broth, vibrant sun-dried tomato, herbs, and cream. Our Primal version replaces the cream with our No-Dairy Alfredo Sauce, made with high-quality ingredients like creamy pumpkin seed butter and avocado oil. Finished off in the oven, this winner, winner of a chicken dinner is rich and creamy, with a flavorful and vibrant sauce that keeps the meat moist and tender. We bet you’ll love it enough to put a ring (of noodles) on it.
Marry Me Chicken
This viral sensation features tender chicken breast cooked in broth with sun-dried tomatoes and herbs. Our version subs in creamy Primal Kitchen Alfredo Sauce for the cream, making it rich and flavorful without the added dairy.
1 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil
- 3 large chicken breasts
- Salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen No-Dairy Alfredo Sauce, plus extra sauce for pasta
- 1 cup chicken broth
½ cup sun-dried tomatoes
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 tsp. garlic, minced
Fresh basil, torn or sliced (optional)
3 cups chickpea pasta, cooked
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Heat an ovenproof skillet with 1 Tbsp. avocado oil to medium heat, until oil begins to sizzle.
Lightly season both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper and add them to the pan. Sear until golden brown on the outside.
Remove chicken from pan. Add minced garlic, chicken broth, and alfredo sauce to the pan and stir until lightly bubbling. Add sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, and red pepper flakes and stir together.
Add chicken breasts back into the pan and bring it back to a simmer, basting with the sauce as you go.
Place the skillet in the oven and cook at 375°F for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Serve over chickpea pasta with additional Alfredo sauce, top with fresh basil if desired, and enjoy!
