Tips for the Best Marry Me Chicken
- Marry Me Chicken originally used thighs, adding extra body to the sauce. However, chicken cutlets or strips are easier to bread evenly and cook faster than thighs, which has made it a more popular option for this dish.
- When choosing your cheese, consider buying a block of parmesan cheese and grating it yourself. The flavor you’ll get is much better than the ready-grated options in the store! You could also use gruyere cheese for a heartier twist on the dish.
- You can save money on chicken cutlets by buying breasts from the store and slicing them at home.
- Add a splash of white wine to brighten your sauce (then enjoy the rest during dinner!).
- Use sundried tomatoes in olive oil to add flavor and color to the dish.
- Swap out the chicken cutlets for the original thighs for other meats, like pork or salmon, to give the dish a new twist!
Add the chicken to the skillet and brown it on each side until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the minced garlic to the skillet. Sauté for about a minute until fragrant.
Pour in the white wine and cook for a couple of minutes, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
Add the chicken stock to the skillet and bring it to a simmer. Let it cook for about 5 minutes to reduce slightly.
Let it simmer gently for a few minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.
Season the sauce with chili flakes, dried oregano, and a few sprigs of fresh thyme. Stir well to incorporate the flavors.
Simmer the chicken in the sauce for an additional 5-7 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the flavors have melded together.
Garnish with fresh thyme leaves and serve hot. Enjoy the delightful flavors of Marry Me Chicken!
