SKillet Artichoke Chicken with Sun Dried Tomatoes

This Skillet Artichoke Chicken with sun dried tomatoes, basil, garlic, and a lick-the-pan cream sauce is is divine.  It's also know in my house as Holy Crap, this is Good Chicken!  The chicken is seared for ultimate flavor.  Then the garlic, artichoke hearts, basil, and sun dried tomatoes give this deep italian flavor that's nutty, slightly sweet, and tangy.  All of this cooks in the creamiest cream sauce that's thick, rich, and delicious. #skilletchicken #skilletdinner #chicken #easydinner #familydinner #italian #tuscanchicken

  1. Preheat a large skillet. Add a tsp of reserved olive oil from the sun dried tomatoes to the preheated pan and then add the pre-seasoned chicken. Cook for 5 minutes on one side until seared. Then flip and cook on the other side for another 3-4 minutes until seared. Then remove to a plate and set aside.
