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 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • pasta, for serving


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions while making chicken.
  2. In a large ziploc bag, add chicken. Pound until desired thickness, about ¼ inch or less.
  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add chicken. Season with salt and pepper (about 1 tsp kosher salt and ½ tsp pepper). Cook for about 3-5 minutes, each side, until no longer pink in the center. Remove chicken and set aside.
  4. To the skillet, add chicken broth, heavy cream, garlic, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. Whisk over medium high heat until thick and bubbly (this takes a couple minutes). Add in spinach and tomatoes and cook for a couple minutes until spinach has wilted down. Return chicken to skillet and serve over pasta. ENJOY!


  • Pound out the chicken breasts. I buy big bulky organic chicken breasts, and in order to have them cook evenly in the skillet, and in little time, I put them in a ziploc bag and pound them with a meat tenderizer. My goal is to get them about ¼-inch thick.
  • Remove the chicken to make the sauce. The chicken will be cooked through after being seared in the pan. Remove it to a plate and keep warm while you make the sauce. The chicken gets added back to the pan at the end.
  • Thicken the sauce. Allow the sauce to get nice and thick and bubbly in the pan before you add the vegetables and return the chicken to the pan. It just takes a few minutes but makes the sauce that much more rich and luxurious!
