Jump to Recipe

Sun-dried tomatoes are a great way to add a sweet and tart flavor to any dish. I’ve used them in a few meals before such as tomato caper pork, and this one is no different. I really like the flavor of sun-dried tomatoes, even though I’m not a big fan of tomatoes.

They are strong, so a bit too much for the boys. Because of that, I don’t cook with them as often as I normally would like to. I save it for nights that they aren’t home for dinner.

  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  • 2 green onions, diced
