I use boneless skinless chicken thighs but you can use breasts as well. I just find the thighs are really little bit juicier.
The sun-dried tomatoes can pick up in just about any grocery store. Do usually come in a small container or jar.
I find table cream is the best as it contains about 18% fat. You can also use half-and-half which contains 10% fat. On the other hand, if you are really diet conscious, you can use milk. Milk, however, does not produce the best results as it's not a creamy enough.
In terms of the rest of the ingredients in seasoning, you can adjust them according to your liking.
