Though a chicken cutlet may be a chicken breast cut in half, this recipe shows how to make chicken cutlets with double the deliciousness. A jar of sun-dried tomatoes does double duty for this healthy dinner recipe. The flavorful oil they're packed in is used to sauté the chicken, and the tomatoes go into the cream sauce.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle chicken with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat sun-dried tomato oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, about 6 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.

  • Add sun-dried tomatoes and shallots to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Increase heat to high and add wine. Cook, scraping up any browned bits, until the liquid has mostly evaporated, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and stir in cream, any accumulated juices from the chicken and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper; simmer for 2 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan and turn to coat with the sauce. Serve the chicken topped with the sauce and parsley.

Wonderful wonderful Dish! I made this as written. I do agree with others that more sauce would be better if you are going to use over rice or noodles. The sauce was not bland at all. I never measure pepper and added to what I thought was right and cooked the sauce a little longer. I mistakenly bought sweet Riesling wine instead of chardonay. The dish did not come across sweet at all. Next time I will add mushrooms. Read More

This was great! We doubled the sauce as suggested by others. There was plenty to go over a side of pasta. Read More

We loved this recipe, including my 17 yr old son. I was skeptical as I did not think I was a sun dried tomato kind of person but I was surprised. We usually vote on new recipes to make or not make and this was voted make again without hesitation. I made no ingredient changes other than adding a bit more of all the liquids to have more sauce to go over egg noodles and added nothing new, mushrooms maybe next time as others have. Read More
