Chef Recipe Tips:

  • It is important to sauté the garlic and rosemary in a pan before cooking the meat. Heating them with sunflower oil allows the essential oils to infuse into the oil, enhancing its flavor and further saturating the meat.
  • You can replace the herbs with fresh basil to your liking.

How to Store Marry Me Chicken?

If you have leftovers, place them in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Then simply heat up when ready to enjoy. If the sauce is too thick, add a splash of water to thin.

 

 

A great main course, especially for those looking to gain quality muscle mass. Pair it with a side of complex carbohydrates (any type of grain or rice), and it will make an excellent lunch after an intense strength training session. However, if your goal is weight loss, then I would recommend reducing the amount of cream used in preparation and consuming a smaller portion of this dish (or simply ensuring that you do not exceed your daily calorie intake). In this case, it would be better to complement the chicken with a light vegetable side dish or salad.

Watch How To Make It

To enhance the depth of flavor in the sun-dried tomato sauce, consider adding a splash of white wine while deglazing the pan. The acidity and subtle sweetness from the wine will elevate the taste profile, creating a more complex and sophisticated sauce. Just remember, moderation is key – a small amount goes a long way. Cheers to infusing an extra layer of culinary magic into your Marry Me Chicken!
