marry me chicken recipe

There are so many ‘marry me’ recipes out there… how are you supposed to know which ones are actually worthy of the ‘marry me’ name?!?! Well, I’ve made this one marry me chicken recipe and can attest that it was SO good. And so easy to make. AND my husband loved it. I also modified the recipe and made it gluten free and then dairy free too by adding coconut milk instead of cream. You can of course choose to make it with regular all purpose flour and cream, but I wanted to make it a little lighter. It was still so flavorful and I highly recommend you give this recipe a try!



– 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 3 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
– 1 cup chicken broth
– 1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk
– 1 tablespoon gluten-free flour (such as almond flour or a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend)
– 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
– 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
– 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
– Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.

3. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

4. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.

5. In a small bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, coconut milk, and gluten-free flour until well combined.

6. Pour the coconut milk mixture into the skillet. Add the Italian seasoning and chopped sun-dried tomatoes, then stir to combine. Allow the mixture to come to a simmer.

7. Return the chicken to the skillet, spooning some of the sauce over the top of each piece. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the chicken.

8. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is bubbling.

9. Once done, remove the skillet from the oven. Garnish the chicken with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
