Marry Me Chicken Pasta

"Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!" 

My good friend, Damien, shared this Marry Me Chicken Pasta recipe that is bursting with flavors from the cheesy, sun-dried tomato sauce. Yum! 


Chicken Pasta

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 10 oz penne pasta
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • tablespoon olive oil


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning 
  • Fresh basil for garnish


Chicken Pasta

  • Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Drain the pasta and set aside while you prepare the chicken and sauce.
  • Cut the chicken into 1-inch bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6-8 minutes until the chicken is no longer pink and cooked through.
  • Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate, and set it aside while you make the sauce.
  • Return to the same skillet, then add the butter. Once it is melted, sauté the garlic for 30 seconds until it's fragrant. Add in the flour and stir to make a paste.
  • Whisk in the chicken broth, heavy cream, and parmesan cheese.
  • Stir in the drained sun-dried tomatoes, paprika, and Italian seasoning. Season with more salt and pepper if needed.
  • Simmer the sauce for a few minutes for it to thicken.
  • Return the chicken to the skillet along with the cooked pasta. Stir to coat the chicken and pasta in the sauce.
  • Garnish with chopped basil leaves and additional parmesan cheese.
