  1. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Lightly pound each chicken breast to 1/2-inch thickness, and cut into 2 or 3 pieces.
  2. Combine flour, paprika, salt, and pepper in a 1-gallon resealable bag. Add chicken pieces, seal, and shake to coat with flour mixture. Remove each piece from the bag, lightly shaking off excess flour.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a deep, 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add chicken pieces to the skillet and cook until browned, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate and keep warm.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon butter, mushrooms, shallot, sun-dried tomatoes, and garlic to the same skillet. Stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in chicken broth and wine. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add cream and minced basil; cook and stir for about 1 minute. Return chicken pieces to the skillet and continue cooking, uncovered, on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a separate 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Lightly cook zucchini noodles, stirring occasionally until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. A longer cooking time will result in softer noodles. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Remove the chicken to a plate. Taste sauce and adjust seasoning.
  7. Place about 1 cup zoodles on each plate. Add 2 or 3 chicken pieces and cover with sauce.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If the cream sauce is too thin for your taste, dissolve 2 tablespoons cornstarch in 3 tablespoons water and pour into the skillet after removing the chicken. Cook and stir constantly until the desired consistency is achieved.

Will be a repeat.

This recipe is awesome! I did make a few changes though. Did not have any sun dried tomatoes on hand. Also, I only had regular whipping cream, so I used 3/4 cup of that. The recipe was still ...
