Chicken Cutlets with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce for Two


Sun-dried tomatoes are used twice in this healthy dinner recipe: the oil from the jar is used to cook the chicken while the tomatoes are added to the cream sauce for a rich, flavorful dish. This recipe was adapted from our popular Chicken Cutlets with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce to serve two instead of four.

  • 8 ounces chicken cutlets

  • teaspoon salt, divided

  • teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • ¼ cup slivered oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, plus 1 tablespoon oil from the jar

  • ¼ cup finely chopped shallot

  • ¼ cup dry white wine

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Sprinkle chicken with a pinch each salt and pepper. Heat sun-dried tomato oil in a medium 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°F, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  2. Add sun-dried tomatoes and shallot 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 pinch 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
