The Remix to Your Regular Chicken Dish: Baked Chicken with Sundried Tomatoes

You can’t go wrong with chicken! But if you want to add a little flair to a regular baked dish, try this recipe. It’s quick and easy but has the impression of a gourmet dish. Add French Bread and a bottle of wine and your guy with think he’s in Italy!



  • 2 chicken breasts, tenderized.
  • 3-4 Tbs of dijon mustard.
  • 4-6 Tbs – sundried tomatoes.
  • 3-6 Tbs – olive oil.
  • 1/4 onion, diced/chopped
  • Pinch of taragon
  • Pinch of paprika
  • Pinches of salt & pepper
  • Toothpicks
  • Oven-safe baking dish
  • French bread (optional)


  1. (If you don’t have a tenderizer, you can put the chicken on a plastic Ziploc quart bag, shape your hand into a fist, and just carefully punch the breast so the thickness gets more even.)
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F).
  3. Use enough dijon mustard to spread over 1 side of both chicken breasts. Make sure you take the mustard OUT of its container first, into another dish, and then take a knife to dip into that to spread the mustard. Do NOT have the utensil that touched the raw chicken touch the mustard in the jar!!
  4. Empty the sundried tomatoes into a bowl or plate, then take some and spread it on top of the mustard layer on each chicken breast.
  5. Drizzle the olive oil over the chicken breasts.
  6. Sprinkle the chopped onion, taragon, paprika, salt, and pepper over the chicken.
  7. Now roll up each chicken breast…not too tight so the spread oozes out, but just enough so that the unflavored side of the breast is able to touch some of the flavored side. Use the toothpicks to clamp the roll tight.
  8. Drizzle the rolled-up chicken with a little more olive oil. Make sure that the unflavored side does get some olive oil on it. This will help keep it from drying out too much in the oven.
  9. Put the chicken breasts in the oven-safe dish, and put in the oven. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
  10. While the chicken is cooking, slice the French bread (on a clean, chicken-free surface!) Set the table.
  11. Check the chicken at about 20 minutes. You can use a fork & knife to prod your serving, to make sure the middle part of the roll is cooking. The chicken should not be pink and raw looking (duh).
  12. Once it’s ready, put it on the plate. If you think the plate looks too empty, you can stick some bread slices on there, or add a vegetable side dish.
  13. Serve the chicken in its rolled state. Your date should try to cut the roll, and remove the toothpicks when they get in the way. Make sure you kindly notify your date that there are toothpicks in there.
  14. Open up a bottle of white wine and voila!
