Ingredients You’ll Need

Frozen ravioli: I use my favorite frozen cheese ravioli for convenience, but you can use fresh ravioli if you prefer.
Olive oil: To sauté the chicken and vegetables. You can substitute with any cooking oil you like.
Chicken breasts: Boneless and skinless, cut into bite-sized pieces for quick cooking. You can use chicken thighs if you prefer.
Salt and pepper: Season to taste.
Garlic powder: Adds a subtle, savory depth to the dish.
Italian seasoning: A blend of herbs that enhances the overall flavor. You can make your own using my recipe.
Red pepper flakes: For a bit of heat. Adjust to your taste or omit if you prefer a milder dish.
Garlic: Freshly minced to add a punch of flavor.
Sun-dried tomatoes: Chopped for a sweet and tangy burst. You can use fresh tomatoes if you like.
Green onions: Adds a mild, fresh onion flavor.
Fresh parsley: Chopped to add freshness and color. You can use dried parsley if that’s what you have.
Heavy cream: For a rich, creamy sauce. You can use half-and-half for a lighter option.
Chicken broth: Opt for a low sodium or no sodium added broth. Vegetable broth works as a substitute.
Parmesan cheese: Grated for a salty, nutty finish.

How To Make Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Ravioli

Start by cooking the ravioli according to the package instructions. Once done, drain them and set aside, making sure to reserve ½ cup of pasta water for later use.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces and season them with salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Cook the chicken until it’s browned and cooked through, which should take about 5-7 minutes.

Next, add the minced garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, green onions, and parsley to the skillet. Stir and cook for another 2 minutes to let the flavors meld together.

Pour in the heavy cream and chicken broth, then simmer the mixture for 2-3 minutes. This will allow the flavors to blend and create a rich, creamy sauce.

Add the cooked ravioli and grated Parmesan cheese to the skillet. Toss everything gently to ensure the ravioli are well coated in the sauce. If the sauce is too thick, gradually add the reserved pasta water until you reach the desired consistency. Serve the dish warm, with extra Parmesan cheese on top if desired.

Frequently Asked QuestionsCan I use fresh ravioli instead of frozen? Absolutely! Fresh ravioli works just as well in this recipe. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time according to the package instructions, as fresh ravioli typically cooks faster than frozen. What can I substitute for heavy cream if I want a lighter option? You can use half-and-half or even whole milk as a lighter alternative to heavy cream. Keep in mind that the sauce may be slightly less creamy but will still be delicious. Can I make this dish ahead of time? Yes, you can make this dish ahead of time. Prepare the sauce and cook the chicken and ravioli as instructed. Store everything separately in the fridge, then combine and reheat gently on the stove when ready to serve. You may need to add a splash of chicken broth or cream to loosen the sauce when reheating.

Expert Tips

Sauté chicken in batches: Avoid overcrowding the pan to ensure the chicken browns evenly.
Reserve pasta water: Use the starchy pasta water to thin the sauce if it becomes too thick.
Use fresh Parmesan: Grate fresh Parmesan cheese for the best flavor and creamy texture.
Rehydrate sun-dried tomatoes: If using dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes, soak them in hot water for a few minutes before chopping.
Season at every step: Add salt and pepper during each stage of cooking to build layers of flavor.

Storage

Store any leftover Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Ravioli in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, gently warm it on the stove, adding a splash of chicken broth or cream if needed. While this dish can be frozen, the cream sauce may separate slightly upon thawing; for best results, enjoy it fresh or refrigerated.
