Light Creamy Chicken

You HAVE to try this LIGHT creamy chicken! The amazing flavours from the fresh herbs and the sun dried tomatoes make it taste absolutely amazing.  

1 Tbsp Olive oil
5 chicken thigh fillets (skin off)
2 garlic cloves, crushed 
1 Tbsp fresh Thyme leaves, finely chopped
1 fresh chilli, chopped roughly
2 stalks of spring onion, finely sliced 
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, halved 
1/2 cup thickened cream
1 cup chicken stock
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups of fresh baby spinach

Trim the large fatty bits off the chicken thighs and coat with salt and pepper.
In a hot pan with a splash of olive oil, brown the thigh fillets lightly and then set aside. 
In the same saucepan, cook garlic, thyme leaves, chilli and spring onion for two minutes. 
Pour in stock, thickened cream and leave to simmer for a further 5 minutes. 
Add in sun dried tomatoes and parmesan and leave for 1 minute.
Add in the browned chicken and leave to simmer for 30 minutes. 
2 minutes before you’re ready to serve, chuck in the baby spinach and leave to wilt. 
Serve on a yummy bed of rice!

Hope you LOVE this recipe - It's one of my family's favourites!

  • Oh my god. This chicken!!! It’s unbelievably good. The sauce is SO perfect – creamy, garlicky, with the right hint of sweetness from the tomatoes. It’s fairly easy to make too. This is one of the few times I have tried a recipe I found on a website and it came out PERFECTLY on the first try. I am not a very good cook at all but this recipe has given me some confidence in the kitchen. Can’t wait to try more of Leah’s recipes. So far I’m so pleased with how all the recipes seem really simple and don’t call for a lot of fancy ingredients.

  • I just want to say that this is one of the tastiest meals I have ever made! I have made this twice and the second time was for my partners parents (who are not too adventurous with their food) and it was a hit!

  • I’ve made this dish twice now and have received glowing reviews. It’s delicious and so easy to make. And inexpensive because you can buy thigh fillets on special always. Love it!

  • Wow! Yum! We’ve just had the light creamy chicken for dinner…..AMAZING! So delicious, full of flavour. This is our family favourite too. Thanks Leah!

  • Has anyone tried with breast, I’m not a fan of the texture of thighs?
