Low Carb Creamy Balsamic Chicken With Sundried Tomatoes

345 ratings

I love the flavor contrasts in this dish. The sauce is very creamy, but the sun-dried tomatoes give a tart bite! The basil gives such a fresh note and the mushrooms are so meaty in flavor! Not to mention the smoked paprika ties the dish all together with a nice smoky note. This will easily become a go-to dish...it is made in one pan!

  • Step 1

    Prep all ingredients by slicing mushrooms, grating cheese etc. as well as measuring out spices and liquids.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally. Mix the smoked paprika, onion powder and salt and pepper (add these to taste). Sprinkle this mixture on both sides of the chicken.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    In a heavy bottomed pan, heat pan until very hot, then add half of the avocado oil. Add the chicken and sear on each side. This should be about 4-5 minutes on the first side and 2-3 minutes on the second side. Cook the chicken completely through. Remove chicken to a clean plate.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Add the other half of the avocado oil to the hot pan. Add the garlic and sliced sun-dried tomatoes.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Add the mushrooms and cook for 3-5 minutes until nicely browned. Deglaze the pan with balsamic vinegar, scraping the pan to remove the browned bits.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Add the half and half and parmesan cheese and simmer for 1 minute. Add the cooked chicken back in and cook for 2-3 minutes to reduce it to a sauce consistency.

        This dish was amazing! I substituted seared red peppers and added Rosemary and it was like I was in another country enjoying a five-star meal! Will definitely make again.

          Try Chunks of egg plant instead of mushrooms

                Very good! Next time I will cut the chicken into tenders instead of just halves. I also added an extra garlic clove.

                  My husband is allergic to mushrooms, any suggestions for a substitute?

                    Fresh Spinach may be a tasty substitute

                  This is excellent. Tons of flavor. I used heavy cream instead of half and half because that's what I had. My husband liked it so much he told me I should make this weekly.

                    I made this tonight! I did change a few things, I am just starting back up on Keto so I used heavy cream over half and half. Depending on the size of the mushrooms you use add them with the garlic before the sun dried tomatoes. This would be amazing over spaghetti squash.

                      I was super excited for this but it’s super bland. I added so much seasoning and it’s still bland.

                        I have made this recipe over and over. If is excellent. Have substituted cherry tomatoes for the sun dried, canned vs fresh mushrooms. Have used breasts and thighs. Popular recipe in our fam. Thanks

                          Very tasty! I had frozen chicken breasts that I boiled up & used but really, for a more tender chicken, use fresh if you can. The sauce has an amazing taste & this is a quick and easy recipe to do. 👍

                            Made this last night and it was so delicious. And super simple. I will be adding this to my rotation for sure! Also, win-win because my husband wanted chicken and dumplings but he's more of a dumpling fan..... so I used the chicken to start his meal and the rest of it I used for mine!

                              I was skeptical with vinegar but this is absolutely amazing. My whole family loved it!

                                Good, it tried breast and thighs. Dark meat doesn’t have as good of texture. It’s nice on fresh spinach.

                                  I used both as well and liked it but agree that white meat was better. I put mine on spinach like you suggested and yummy!! So good!

                                    I posted a review earlier but after it rested and I reheated the dish it was super good! I used thighs vs breasts.

                                            This was so easy and flavorful! I like simple recipes and this was perfect! I didn't have the half and half so combined heavy cream with skim milk. The family loved it!

                                                  Great recipe. Don’t be afraid to be generous with the seasoning. Easy lunchtime meal that I was able to purchase the ingredients for and make at home still getting back to the office in a reasonable time. Will make again for the family.
