Chicken Thighs with Creamy Garlic Wine Sauce

  • 4 chicken thighs Note 1
  • 140 grams sun-dried tomatoes Note 2
  • 1 tsp oil from sun-dried tomato jar Note 3
  • 6 garlic cloves peeled
  • 200 ml sweet white wine Note 4
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tsp onion flakes
  • 200 ml cream Note 5


Creamy Garlic Chicken Thighs

  • Add the sun-dried tomato olive oil to a skillet and place the chicken thighs into the pan, season with salt and pepper
  • Add ½ of the wine to the pan (it will sizzle) and use this to braise the chicken thighs. Flip to other side after 5 minutes and add the remaining wine
  • Drop the garlic cloves into the pan, add the sun-dried tomatoes, Italian herbs, onion flakes and cream. Stir to combine
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes
  • Spoon the creamy garlic wine sauce over the chicken thighs to serve



  • Note 1: I recommend boneless chicken thighs, but if you end up with bone in chicken thighs, they will be fine, cook for an extra 2 minutes each side. Test chicken is cooked with a skewer close to the bone and ensure juice runs clear. If still pink, cook for a little longer. 
  • Note 1A: Skinless chicken thighs will result in a lower calorie serving 
  • Note 2: you can get sun-dried tomatoes in a jar or fresh from the deli. The deli ones will be softer and less chewy. But they won't have the flavoured oil to use for the initial cook of the chicken. I recommend the jar sun type version
  • Note 3: if you use fresh sun-dried tomatoes, use regular olive oil 
  • Note 4: I recommend Moscato. It is a sweet white wine and great to cook with. 
  • Note 5: I use thickened cream. This is different to dollop cream. It's consistency is like a thick shake. You can use either pouring or whipping cream otherwise called cooking cream.
