Creamy Tuscan Chicken

We’re always looking for winning chicken recipes, and easy dinner ideas, and this recipe for Tuscan Chicken is definitely one of those dishes you’ll find yourself making again and again.

We originally made this clear back in 2015, and put the recipe here on our blog, but we were not yet filming videos. I thought it would be great to highlight it again!

The chicken thighs are tender and juicy, spinach add earthy flavor, and sun-dried tomatoes give the dish some Tuscan flair—and it’s all tossed with a creamy Parmesan sauce.

But what really popularized this dish (at least in America) was Olive Garden’s Tuscan Garlic Chicken, a dish with a similar flavor profile, served over fettuccine…..but you can serve yours over an low carb friendly pasta alternative.

Bonus, it’s a 30 minute dinner, AND one skillet meal in one! Most of us don’t have the time or energy to spend hours in the kitchen, especially on busy weeknights.

It is essential to have a few easy dinner recipes in your back pocket. This Tuscan chicken is not only quick and easy, but it’s absolutely delicious and flavorful!
