1 small jar sun-dried tomatoes, drained
2 tbsp olive oil (either from the jar of sun-dried tomatoes or just use regular olive oil)
A pinch of paprika
2 large chicken breasts, halved horizontally
1 cup cream
1 cup milk
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp basil
¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes

. In a large pan, on medium heat, sauté garlic and sun-dried tomatoes in two tablespoons of oil for one minute until garlic is fragrant.
2. Remove sun-dried tomatoes and garlic from the pan, leaving the oil and add the chicken breasts. Cover lightly with salt and paprika before adding to the pan. Cook on medium heat for about five minutes on each side. Cover the pan with the lid, remove from heat, and let the chicken sit, cooking in its own juices, with heat off, until completely cooked through.
3. Add one cup of cream and bring to the boil. Add one cup of mozzarella cheese and immediately reduce to simmer, constantly stirring to melt the cheese.
4. Add one cup of milk gradually, whisking until nice and smooth. Add the cooked sun-dried tomatoes and garlic. Add the basil and crushed red pepper and mix to combine.

4 simple money-saving home tips

While regular home maintenance won't always guarantee that you'll have a future of no home repairs to budget for, they can prevent some costly problems that could have been avoided. There are some easy home maintenance things that you can do that could save you big bucks.

1. A pesky water drip or leak can add up to higher water bills. Leaks and drips can also lead to severe water damage if you leave it for too long or they’re in a spot that can cause structural damage, like an upstairs bathroom. Check your plumbing regularly.

2. It's also important to check for any breaks in caulking around tubs, sinks, etc. The same applies to the grouting in any tiled surfaces that you have. Not only is mildew a problem to get rid of, but improperly grouted or broken grouted surfaces can destroy a shower or countertop and even warp the surface.

3. Put dimmers on lights that you use frequently but are in areas where you don't always need a lot of light. Also switch your bulbs to energy-saving compact fluorescent ones. You'll save money on the electric bill and also on your bulbs.

4. No matter what you have in your home, over time, if you keep things like windows, floors, cabinets, walls and railings clean and well taken care of, you're going to avoid the cost of repairing or replacing them. So stay on top of small problems before they get out of hand.
