Traditional Tuscan chicken is a great weeknight dinner because it requires a single skillet to cook the dish from start to finish. It’s normally served with a big heaping side of pasta, but we’ve made a version that stands well on its own. Plus, there’s a heaping bunch of spinach so you’re getting your veggies in! We like using chicken thighs in our Creamy Tuscan Chicken keto recipe for an ample source of protein that holds up well in the sauce.
This dish is ultimately creamy and a little cheesy. We start by browning the chicken thighs before cooking them alongside Tuscan ingredients like sundried tomatoes and garlic. Are you drooling yet? These flavors come together for a deliciously cohesive entree that can be paired alongside mixed vegetables, cauliflower rice, and so much more. Get creative!
