To make the sauce use the 1.5 quart Kitchen Charm saucepan, turn heat to medium low, add olive oil. Wait for it to heat up about a minute; add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the chicken broth and sun-dried tomatoes. Let them simmer for 10-15 minutes. You want the tomatoes to have a chance to re-hydrated and become tender. Add the cream and let it come to a simmer. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Carefully using a large measuring cup ladled sauce into a blender, add the lid and blend until smooth. If you have an immersion blender you could use that as well. Put the sauce back in the pot and turn heat to the lowest setting to keep warm.
Use 4 quart Kitchen Charm saucepan to cook pasta. Fill saucepan with water according to package directions. Put lid on and wait for Redy-cook valve to whistle, close valve and turn heat to medium low. Cook for 5 minutes, remove from heat and drain. Put pasta back in pot with lid on until you are ready to serve. Make sure heat is turned off.
Combine herbs, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Season the chicken on one side with the herb blend.
To prepare the herb crusted chicken breast preheat 10.5” Kitchen Charm skillet on medium-high heat. When water beads up and dances around the pan is ready to add the chicken. Place herb side down in skillet. You want to hear the chicken sizzle. Push the chicken down. Season the side that is up in the pan. Put lid on at a tilt to ensure browning. Cook 4-5 minutes on each side depending on the size of your chicken breasts. To ensure nice browning don’t flip the chicken until it releases from the pan and its own juices or at 4-5 minutes. Frequently turning with not achieve a beautiful browning.
When the chicken is done place the pasta on a plate and top with sauce and chicken. You can also cut up some additional basil to sprinkle on top for a nice pop of added color.
