Creamy Tuscan Chicken
This Creamy Tuscan Chicken recipe turns simple chicken breasts into a wow-factor weeknight dinner. Quick, easy, and, most importantly, not boring, this Italian-inspired recipe produces juicy chicken and gorgeous, luscious sauce. A classic comfort food dinner made easy in one pan. Serve with crusty bread so you can mop up the extra sauce.
The chicken breasts are pan-seared until golden and then finished in a creamy pan sauce. The sauce is super simple yet so flavorful. It’s amped up with garlic, tomatoes, baby spinach, and Parmesan cheese. The sauce is buttery, a little garlicky, cheesy, and very creamy, thanks to the heavy cream. It’s the perfect pairing to a pan-seared chicken breast. Serve with lemon wedges alongside for squeezing over, and enjoy!
