Discover a simple way to cook gourmet chicken in a flavourful Asiago cream sauce. Stumbling on this amazing dish through my travels in northern Italy, I have decided to include it in my favourite dinner recipes. The tender chicken soaks up a mildly flavoured cheese sauce infused with sundried tomatoes, and seasoned with Italian herbs, making the chicken juicy and flavourful. This creamy chicken recipe goes exceptionally well with gluten free pasta and can be made in less than 45 minutes including prep time. Next time you think of Italian food, try this simple and easy to make recipe, it is a keeper!

  • 8 pieces bone-in, with skin chicken thighs
  • Himalayan pink salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 large tomato, roughly chopped

  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, plus some for garnish
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper
