Marry Me Chicken
Marry Me Chicken
The perfectly easy chicken recipe for Valentine's Day, date night, or weeknight dinner.


  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, or
  • 1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced in half horizontally to make them thinner
  • BFF seasoning (our Kosher salt, coarse ground black pepper & granulated garlic combo)
  • About 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 ounces diced pancetta or thick cut bacon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1.5 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 3 ounces sun-dried tomatoes in oil, sliced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil


  1. Season both sides of chicken with the BFF, dredge both sides in flour shaking off excess, then put on a plate and set aside
  2. Heat a large pan over medium high heat add the pancetta - cook until just getting crispy, remove and set aside – there shouldn’t be much grease, but if there is you can leave about a tablespoon of it
  3. Add the butter and olive oil,and when melted put in the chicken and cook until golden brown on each side, 3-4 minutes, then flip and repeat - remove and set aside
  4. Reduce the heat to low, add the onions and cook until translucent, approx 3 minutes, then add the garlic stirring until fragrant
  5. Put in the tomato paste and Dijon, stirring into the onions about 2 minutes
  6. Add the chicken stock, cream, oregano, thyme, red pepper flakes, parmesan, sun dried tomatoes and pancetta
  7. Cook over a low simmer, stirring often until it begins to thicken, 3 - 4 minutes
  8. Stir n the basil, then put the chicken back into the pan, and when heat through, probably another 3-4 minutes, you’re good to go…and get married
