Creamy sun-dried tomato chicken with pasta is a quick, easy dinner recipe with a delicious sauce that will have you licking your fingers! I love serving this chicken with pasta but brown rice or quinoa also work well. The whole family will love this meal!


  • 6 bone-in, skinless Chicken Thighs
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil (from sundried tomatoes in oil)
  • 2 teaspoon Butter
  • 1 teaspoon minced Garlic
  • ½ teaspoon dried Thyme
  • ½ teaspoon Chilli Flakes
  • ½ cup Sun-dried Tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • ¾ cup low sodium Chicken Broth
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 2 cups cooked Fusilli Pasta


  1. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
  2. Melt butter in a pan over medium high heat, and add chicken thighs. Sear on both sides for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  3. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  4. Heat olive oil in the same pan and add garlic, thyme and chilli flakes. Saute for a minute or two and add sundried tomatoes, chicken broth, salt and pepper.
  5. Add the chicken back to the pan and cook covered for 20-25 minutes till the chicken is cooked through. Check after 15 minutes and add a little more broth if necessary.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked, stir in the heavy cream and parmesan and simmer for a minute or two before switching off the flame. Toss the cooked pasta in if adding it to the sauce and mix well. Serve immediately.
