  6. Cook the chicken until browned, NOT burnt.
  7. Add mushrooms, garlic and the sun-dried tomatoes. Stir to combine.
  8. Now add the chicken broth and heavy cream (this is where you would add the xanthan gum to help thicken the sauce—optional).
  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.
