Creamy Tuscan Chicken: A Taste of Italy in Every Bite!

📝 Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

👩‍🍳 Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Season and Sear: Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and sear until golden brown on both sides, about 6-7 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.

  2. Sauté Aromatics: In the same skillet, add minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.

  3. Create Creamy Sauce: Pour in chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Stir in heavy cream, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, and dried Italian seasoning. Bring the sauce to a simmer.

  4. Simmer with Spinach: Reduce heat to low and add fresh spinach leaves to the sauce. Let them wilt and cook for about 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Return Chicken: Return seared chicken breasts to the skillet, nestling them into the creamy sauce.

  6. Finish Cooking: Cover the skillet and let the chicken simmer in the sauce for another 5-7 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C).

  7. Garnish and Serve: Once chicken is cooked, garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and flavor.

  8. Plate and Enjoy: Serve Creamy Tuscan Chicken hot over cooked pasta, rice, or with crusty bread to soak up that delicious sauce. Be prepared for compliments and requests for seconds!
