These boneless chicken breasts are flavored with a tasty cilantro cream sauce. Cajun seasoning, a little wine, green onions, and cream are among the ingredients. This is a flavorful dish, great with rice or pasta, or serve it with boiled new or fingerling potatoes. Feel free to replace the wine with more chicken broth.
Halved cherry or grape tomatoes and red bell pepper add color and more flavor to the dish.
4 chicken breasts
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, divided
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
4 to 6 green onions, sliced
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
Gather the ingredients.
Put boneless chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap and use the smooth side of a meat tenderizer or other heavy tool to flatten to an even thickness of about 1/4 inch. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and about half of the Cajun seasoning.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is very hot and shimmering, add chicken. Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, turning to brown both sides. The juices should run clear when chicken is pricked with a fork. Remove chicken to a plate.
Add butter, green onions, and red bell pepper to drippings in skillet. Cook while stirring until vegetables are tender, about 1 minute.
Add chicken broth and wine; bring to a boil. Simmer until juices have reduced to about 1/2 cup.
Add cream and continue simmering to reduce slightly. Stir in tomatoes and cilantro, along with remaining Cajun seasoning. Taste and add salt and pepper, if necessary. Cook for 1 minute longer.
Add chicken back to skillet; cover and heat through.
