Chicken Thighs in Sun-Dried Tomato Cream



Chicken Thighs in Sun-Dried Tomato Cream | Cooking on the Front Burner

Happy Saturday!  Time to enjoy the weekend cuz you deserve it!  And I've got a meal for you that is easy to make and has great flavor.  A couple weeks ago I came across this recipe from UNI HOMEAKER.  I was really drawn to it because it has the DIY Guy's favorite meat - nope not the other white meat but close... chicken thighs.  I quickly pinned it and had time this past week to give it a try.  It did not disappoint!

I did tweak it a bit to what I had on hand and also served it over pasta (that's the Italian in me).  Be sure to stop by to see Uni - not only is this recipe fantastic but she also has other great ones to try!
