Marry Me Chicken has become a viral sensation since it was first shared on the internet in 2022. This creamy, juicy chicken curry is cooked with sun-dried tomatoes, cheese, and other delicious ingredients, making it a delectable favorite.


Units Scale
  • 500g Boneless Chicken
  • 200g Sundried Tomatoes or Dried Tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. Chopped Garlic
  • 50g fresh Parsley
  • 200ml Fresh Cream
  • 75g Cheese (I used Mozzarella)
  • 3 cups Chicken Stock
  • 4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter


  • 1.5 Tsp. Salt
  • 1.5 Tsp. Chili Flakes
  • 2 Tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1 Tsp. Oregano


  1. Use chicken breast for this recipe.
  2. Cut the Chicken Breast into thick pieces.
  3. Now marinate the chicken strips with 1 Tsp. each of the Salt and Black Pepper Powder.
  4. Meanwhile, chop the parsley.
  5. Now heat Olive Oil in a pan.
  6. Fry the marinated chicken in three batches.
  7. Fry one side for a maximum of one minute and flip to fry the other side.
  8. Fry just to the point the chicken changes color. Check the video for reference.
  9. Do not over-fry chicken.
  10. Strain fried chicken from the pan.
  11. Now add the butter to the pan and let it melt.
  12. Add chopped Garlic and saute till the garlic is browned. 
  13. Now add half of the chopped Parsley and saute for a while. 
  14. Now add the spices which are- Chili Flakes, Oregano, remaining Black Pepper, and Salt.
  15. After adding the spices give a thorough mix.
  16. Add Sun-dried Tomatoes and after mixing those mash with the back of the spatula a bit.
  17. Let those cook for 2 minutes.
  18. Now add 1/3 of the Chicken Stock. 
  19. I use homemade chicken stock.
  20. After adding the stock cook on low flame till the tomatoes melt and the gravy thickens.
  21. Now add fresh Cream and stir vigorously to avoid curdling the cream.
  22. Once mixed add the remaining stock to dilute the mixture.
  23. Mix and bring it to a boil.
  24. Let the gravy thicken.
  25. It would take around 4 minutes.
  26. Now add fried chicken and give a thorough mix.
  27. Cook the chicken after flipping once or twice for 2 minutes. 
  28. The chicken at this point will be cooked, soft but not chewy. This is very important. If you overcook chicken, it would be chewy.
  29. Now add Mozzarella Cheese and mix it.
  30. Finally, add the remaining Parsley, and after mixing switch the flame off.
  31. Serve Marry Me Chicken hot with your choice of Carbohydrate.


  • You can coat the chicken pieces with all-purpose flour before frying them. I do not like to coat the chicken with flour for this recipe of marry me chicken. I prefer the chicken light, and the gravy smooth.
  • I prefer to use Mozzarella cheese over Parmesan cheese. However, at times I top the MArry Me chicken with Parmesan. 
  • Sun-dried or Dried tomatoes are a must for this recipe. They give a tangy, smoky flavor.
  • I prefer to use a mixture of fresh and dried spices. The choice is yours. Use whatever available.
