Chicken with Sundried Tomato Cream Sauce

Chicken with Sundried Tomato Cream Sauce

One pot meals – my absolute favourite. Less cleaning up, quick to put together and best of all the dish retains on its lovely flavours as there is no moving the food from pan to pan.  This recipe for chicken with sundried tomato cream sauce is a winner winner chicken dinner kinda meal.

The flavour comes from the use of Always Fresh Mediterranean Sundried Tomatoes that are bottled with capers, herbs and sauteed onions – you can just imagine the flavour explosion you will get when eating this dish.  The best part – there is no need to worry about adding additional quantities of herbs and spices because they are all bottled up with the sundried tomatoes which just makes this dish even easier.


1 Whole Chicken cut into 8ths or you can use 8 thighs, drumsticks.
2 Tbs Butter
1 Tbs Olive Oil
1 Tbs Minced Garlic
1 Onion, sliced
Salt and Pepper
1/2 Jar Always Fresh Mediterranean Sundried Tomatoes
1 Cup Chicken Stock
1/2 Cup Cream
1/4 Cup Parmesan
1/2 Cup Medium Grain Rice (uncooked)


1. Place a heavy baking pot that has a lid on the stove over a high heat. Add the butter and olive oil and allow to melt.  Add the chicken pieces skin side down add the garlic, onion and season with salt and pepper.  Cook on both sides until golden brown. Approx 2-3 minutes each side. Remove the chicken from the pot.

    How and when would you add the rice if making in a slow cooker? Thanks

    I would love to win one of these packs and think I would try making sun-dried tomato pesto pasta 🙂

    The sundried tomatoes would be my pick, pureed in the magic bullet with some cream cheese to make an amazing dip!

    Hi Amanda, stupid question but when you put the pot in the oven do you put the lid on?

    • Lea May 28, 2015 at 5:28 pm #

      Yes I’m wondering this too as why would you need a pot with a lid otherwise?

      • Amanda June 2, 2015 at 11:44 am #

        Yes the lid goes on when you place it in the oven.

    I’d love to try the Tuscan Mix, I reckon it would add a lovely zing to my Morrocan Chicken Cous Cous! And I’d use some of the oil from the jar to add to a yoghurt dressing. Yummo, this is making me hungry!!

    I’d love to make a pasta using chilli olives, or a chicken dish, or just eat them! 🙂

    I love Always Fresh! I’d like to try the Mediterranean mix, I think they’d be a divine addition to Mediterranean roast chicken with hassle back potatoes.

    The yummy olives!! I want to start making my own foccacias YUMMY!!!

    id love to try the sun dried tomatoes. I’d probably just eat them from the jar haha but if there’s any left I’d make a creamy sundried tomato pasta!

    I’d love to try the Tuscan mix on a wood fire pizza

  13. Stephanie May 28, 2015 at 8:58 pm #

    I would love to try the sundried tomatoes! I would use them to stuff chicken breasts with the tomatoes, ricotta, spinach, pistachios and herbs … Or a simple antipasto plate always goes down well 🙂

      Congratulations you are the second winner, check your email.

    I would love to try the Tuscan mix to put in my stromboli. Would be a taste sensation!!

  15. Patrice Callaghan May 28, 2015 at 10:56 pm #

    Parmesan stuffed olives!!! I would add them to a bolognase sauce – and heaps of them!

    Tuscan mix- who wouldn’t love an afternoon in the autumn sun with a bowl of Tuscan treats, a glass of white and dream of an Italian field!!

    Is half a cup of rice correct for 4 people. Doesn’t sound like much.

    • Amanda February 1, 2016 at 11:21 am #

      Yes it is. You can cook extra separately otherwise you will need to double the liquid if you want to double the rice.

  18. Erin June 12, 2017 at 12:14 pm #

    does it work with arborio rice too?

    • Amanda June 17, 2017 at 4:25 pm #

      You can, but you will need a little extra liquid or use a little less as they absorb liquid more than long grain rice.
