Marry Me Chicken is the ultimate comfort food recipe and only takes 30 minutes to make

Deciding what to make for dinner can be difficult, but this mouth-watering chicken dish is incredibly easy and quick to make in only 30 minutes.

Marry Me Chicken is a tasty Italian-American dish made with tender chicken, flavourful sundried tomatoes and a simple but delicious creamy sauce.

Sarah Rossi, a cookbook author and founder of the recipe website Taming Twins, has shared that Marry Me Chicken only takes five minutes to prepare and takes around 25 minutes to cook from scratch.

She said: “The combination of pan-frying the chicken as well as simmering it in the sauce gives a delicious golden coating with a succulent meat on the inside. The sauce is just the right balance of creamy, zesty and cheesy.

“While there’s so much wonderful flavour, it’s also a pretty simple recipe and anyone can make it, which is the ultimate test of how well a recipe is received! No nonsense. Just delicious.”

This dinner is also super versatile as you can serve it with pasta, rice or even with some potatoes and vegetables so you can adapt it for whatever sides you fancy.
