Marry Me Chicken

Marry Me Chicken is a savory and creamy chicken dish typically made with bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs or breasts, cooked in a creamy tomato sauce with herbs and garlic. It’s named “Marry Me Chicken” because it’s so delicious that some people humorously claim it could make someone propose marriage after tasting it. While the traditional recipe calls for bone-in, skin-on chicken, you can use boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts if you prefer. Just adjust the cooking time accordingly as boneless chicken cooks faster.

To make the creamy tomato sauce, you typically start by sautéing garlic and sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil. Then, add chicken broth, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning. Simmer the sauce until it thickens and becomes creamy.

The reason i love this dish is you can makeit  ahead of time and reheat it when you’re ready to serve. The flavors tend to meld together even more when reheated, making it a great make-ahead dish,  the creamy sauce may separate slightly upon thawing and reheating. It’s best enjoyed fresh, but if you plan to freeze leftovers, store them in an airtight container for up to 2-3 months.

if you’re vegan you can make  you can make a vegetarian version of Marry Me Chicken by using plant-based chicken substitutes or tofu and vegetable broth instead of chicken. Adjust the ingredients and seasonings accordingly to suit your taste.
