What can I serve marry me chicken with?

This chicken dish comes with lots of delicious sauce. To get the most out of it, you can serve your chicken with short pasta, like rigatoni or penne. The sauce would go well with rice too, as the rice would soak everything in. Potatoes always go well with chicken. If you’re looking to balance out the heavy creamy chicken with something fresh, go for a side salad.

What herbs can I add to marry me chicken?

The recipe calls for garlic, thyme, basil, and red pepper flakes. That’s a winning combination that tastes delicious with heavy cream, chicken broth, and sun-dried tomatoes. If you don’t like these herbs, feel free to add anything you like. You know best what tastes good to you, so don’t be shy.

Should I cook the chicken in the skillet?

Don’t worry about completely cooking the chicken in the skillet. All you need is to sear it until it gains that beautiful golden color. The chicken will be cooked in the oven anyway, so it will completely cook through.
