Tuscan Garlic Chicken

Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken has a cheesy garlic sauce with cherry tomatoes and fresh spinach! Serve over pasta for a restaurant quality meal in under 30 minutes!

  1. First decide if you’ll be enjoying this with noodles. If so, get the water boiling for the noodles and have all your ingredients out and ready for the chicken dish. It cooks up fast!
  2. Second, I like to pound my boneless, skinless, chicken breast thin. I buy big bulky organic chicken breast, and in order to have them cook evenly in the skillet, in little time, I put them in a ziploc bag and pound them with a meat tenderizer. My goals is to get them about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Make sure when you cook your chicken in the skillet, you season it with salt and pepper. This gives your chicken a base of flavor!
  4. Once you’ve cooked your chicken in oil, remove it from the pan while you make the cream sauce. It won’t take long for your sauce to thicken over medium high heat. Once it’s bubbly and thick, add your chicken back to the skillet.
  5. Serve over noodles and enjoy!
