Marry Me Chicken

Around Valentines Day I saw lots of social media posts about this dish and couldn’t resist giving it a try. It is supposed to be so delicious that you may even get a marriage proposal! This works well with mashed potatoes and green beans or it would be delicious over pasta.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Handful of halved button mushrooms
  • 2 garlic gloves (crushed)
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 200ml chicken stock
  • Half a jar of sundried tomatoes (drained)
  • 100ml double cream
  • Handful of grated parmesan
  • Parsley and lemon juice to garnish


  • I sliced chicken breasts in half on the horizontal to make thinner slices and then browned them in a large frying pan using some olive oil and a knob of butter.
  • I removed them from the pan to a plate and then I sliced a few mushrooms and cooked them in the pan with a few cloves of crushed garlic.
  • I added a tablespoon of tomato puree, some smoked paprika, oregano and chilli flakes before pouring in 200ml chicken stock.
  • I returned the chicken to the pan and bubbled it until the volume of liquid had reduced by half.
  • Finally, I added half a jar of sliced sundried tomatoes to the mix and a good splash of double cream and a handful of grated parmesan cheese. I stirred everything through, seasoned to taste,
