Updated: Jun 16

marry me chicken

In my search to find good recipes that are easy to make, I came across a marry me chicken recipe. I laughed at the name, but after looking at multiple versions of the recipe, one thing became clear - the majority of people who made this became instant fans! The recipe this is based on shows a rating of 4.97 from over 1000 votes as of today, so I figured I had to try it. It's unbelievably good! The best part is you can have it on the table in about an hour from start to finish. I've heard suggestions of serving it on top of mashed potatoes instead of fettuccine. I may have to give that a try! Enjoy!

fettuccine for use in marry me chicken


  • Boil a pot of water. Once boiling, cook the fettuccine.

  • Season the chicken with salt & pepper and then dredge it in the flour. Shake off the excess.

  • In an extra-large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat. Make sure the bottom of the pan is coated.

  • Brown the chicken, making sure not to overcrowd the pan (do this in batches if necessary) for 4-5 minutes per side until golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. Cover it on a plate and set it aside.

  • Saute the garlic for 1-2 minutes until it is fragrant. Add in the chicken stock and deglaze the pan, scraping up the bits from the bottom with a spoon that won't hurt the nonstick finish.

  • Adjust the heat to medium-low. Add in the heavy cream and the grated parmesan cheese. Allow the sauce to simmer for a few minutes and then add in the crushed red pepper, oregano, thyme, and dried basil. Taste the sauce and if you feel it needs it, season with salt & pepper.

  • Add in the chopped sundried tomatoes and the chicken. Let the sauce simmer and thicken for a few more minutes.

  • To serve, top the pasta with the chicken and sauce. Garnish (optional) with chopped fresh basil leaves.
