Sometimes I get tired of eating lots of meat (I know, blasphemy in the primal diet) and this yummy sauce spices things up a bit, I think.

Chicken with Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced thin
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons coconut flour

1/2 cup onions, chopped finely

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 shallot, minced
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped (in package, NOT oil packed)
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.  Add chicken & grind fresh pepper on each side. Cover & cook until done, about 5 minutes on each side. (When done, chicken will have NO pink on the inside.)  Remove from heat and set aside, keeping covered.
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, & shallots, cooking 1-2 minutes, just until soft.  Add sun dried tomatoes; stir. With a whisk in hand,  add flour & stir.  Slowly pour in chicken broth, whisking constantly to remove any lumps.  Add cream, still whisking.  Continue whisking for 3-4 minutes or until sauce begins to thicken.  Take off heat and let sit; it will continue to thicken, feel free to stir every so often.
