One-pan baked chicken meals are so easy to make and this creamy parmesan and sun-dried tomato baked chicken is really tasty! The basic idea behind this recipe is that you throw the chicken along with some tasty ingredients into a pan and bake everything all at the same time! This chicken is seasoned with a Italian herb blend and it’s baked in a cream based sauce with parmesan cheese and sun-dried tomatoes, both of which are just packed with flavour! The sauce is also seasoned with garlic, and red pepper flakes for some heat. I like to add fresh chopped spinach for something green and since it will release some liquid as it bakes, I add some cornstarch to the sauce which will keep it nice and thick! This creamy parmesan and sun-dried tomato baked chicken is amazing served over pasta, rice, mashed potatoes or polenta!
