  5. Allow it to warm up and then add the chicken.
  6. Cook the chicken until browned, NOT burnt.
  7. Add mushrooms, garlic and the sun-dried tomatoes. Stir to combine.

  9. Stir to combine and allow to cook for approximately 2 minutes or until it begins to bubble.
  10. Reduce heat to a simmer for 5-10 minutes or until you have reached your desired thickness. Remember to stir frequently to avoid scorching.
