Recommended Equipment:



  • In a small bowl, whisk together the tomato puree and flour until you achieve a smooth consistency.
  • Pour the chicken stock, heavy cream, black pepper, oregano, paprika, and chili powder into the slow cooker. Add the tomato-flour paste you prepared earlier. Whisk everything together until well combined.
  • Gently stir in the sliced garlic and diced sun-dried tomatoes.
  • Place the chicken breast cutlets into the slow cooker, ensuring they are fully submerged in the sauce.
    Optional: For added flavour, you can sear the chicken in a pan until golden brown before adding it to the slow cooker.
  • Cover the slow cooker and set it to High for 2-3 hours or Low for 4-6 hours.
  • Once the chicken is cooked through and tender, garnish it with grated Parmesan cheese, freshly chopped basil, and sliced cherry tomatoes. Adjust seasoning if needed.
  • Plate the chicken over your choice of pasta or boiled potatoes. Pair with a glass of wine and share with someone special!


  • Prioritize Quality: Choose high-quality, organic or free-range chicken for the best flavour and texture. Avoid poultry that’s been treated with water or other additives.
  • Tomato Substitution: If sun-dried tomatoes aren’t on hand, fresh ripe and sweet tomatoes can be used as a replacement. 
  • Gluten-Free Adaptation: For those with gluten sensitivities, omit flour and thicken at the end with cornflour.
  • Veggie Boost: Enhance the dish with additional vegetables like sliced mushrooms, bell peppers, or zucchini. Just toss them into the slow cooker with the main ingredients.
  • Thickening the Sauce: If a denser sauce is desired, whisk together 1 tablespoon of corn-starch with 1 tablespoon of cold water. Introduce this mixture to the slow cooker about 30 minutes before the end of the cooking duration. Be carful when mixing, not to damage the fragile chicken.

FAQ for the recipe:

  • Can I use frozen chicken for the recipe? I recommend defrosting the chicken first before cooking. Cooking chicken directly from its frozen state can lead to uneven cooking, with the exterior becoming overcooked while the interior remains undercooked. Additionally, it can cause the chicken to fall apart or become too dry. Properly thawed chicken ensures even cooking and retains the meat’s tenderness and flavour.
  • How should I store and reheat leftovers? Store any leftover “Marry Me Chicken” in an airtight container to maintain its freshness. When you’re ready to enjoy it again, you can reheat it either in the microwave or on the stovetop over low heat. To preserve its texture and flavour, avoid excessive stirring and consider adding a touch of cream during reheating. Properly stored, this dish will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to three days.
  • Can I freeze the leftovers? While you technically can, I wouldn’t advise it. Freezing dishes with creamy sauces can lead to texture changes upon reheating, causing the sauce to separate or become grainy. For the best quality and taste, it’s preferable to consume the dish fresh or refrigerate and consume it within a few days.
  • How can I make this recipe lower in fat? For a lighter version, consider replacing the heavy cream with a lower-fat cream.
  • What wine goes well with Marry Me Chicken? “Marry Me Chicken” pairs beautifully with red wines such as Merlot and Pinot Noir. If you prefer white wine, Chardonnay is a great choice.
