4 boneless skinless chicken breasts*

2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 Tbsp finely chopped shallot or yellow onion

2 cloves garlic

1 1/3 cups + 1 Tbsp low-sodium chicken broth

2 1/2 tsp cornstarch

1/2 cup sun dried tomato halves packed in olive oil

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/3 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese

3 Tbsp chopped fresh basil


Pound chicken to an even thickness using the flat side of a meat mallet. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook about 4 - 5 minutes per side until center registers 165 degrees on an instant read thermometer. Transfer to a sheet of foil and wrap to keep warm, set aside. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in skillet. Add shallot and saute until nearly soft, about 3 minutes, add garlic and saute 1 minute longer. Pour in 1 1/3 cups chicken broth, while scraping bottom to release browned bits. In a small bowl whisk together remaining 1 Tbsp broth with cornstarch then pour into skillet. Stir in sun dried tomatoes, season sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a light boil and allow to simmer 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add in cream and parmesan, stirring until parmesan has melted. Remove from heat, add chicken to skillet, spoon sauce over chicken. Top with basil and serve immediately.
