I think what I love the best about tuscan chicken is HOW QUICKLY it comes together. I mean, not like 10 minutes quick, but It’s not an “60 minute slow simmer” dish.

Cook the chicken (about 8 minutes per side, then pull it out and make the sauce. Once the sauce incorporated and simmered for 10 minutes you’re done.

SO the secret of a good Tuscan Chicken dish is the garlic. Tuscany is BIG on garlic. So err on the side of more than less. I went with about 6 cloves.

Garlic Tuscan Chicken is easy enough for a weeknight, but comforting enough for a weekend dinner. What I love most about it is how versatile it is. I Added some spinach and broccolini to it.

You can add red peppers, zucchini, or egg plant. maybe even peas and carrots if you like – its all going to taste good in this garlicky Tuscan sauce.

When cooking the chicken brown it in olive oil and butter and DON’T MOVE IT for the entirety of the 8 minutes. If you want – lightly coat your chicken in a little flour to help that crust form, and it will thicken the sauce a little too.

And if you’re feeling fancy – deglaze that pan with a little white wine. A chardonnay is perfect. It will add another dimension to the dish and really make it stand out!

This is a perfect recipe to throw in a few chicken breast in, but if you want to change it up a little, chicken thighs will work, or you could even do pork chops!

This Tuscan chicken recipe is such a great base, it makes a great dinner, and the leftovers are even better!
