Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken

One more week left of school.  One.  As I look back at this last school year it has flown by!   I feel like we were just celebrating Christmas and now we are heading into summer.   We are all looking forward to the summer time at our house.  Bring on the BBQs, s’mores, swimming, and late nights!

We have been so busy with moving into our new house that we have hardly had any time for a home cooked meal.  This Tuscan Garlic Chicken was the first meal that I have made in a while and it is TO DIE FOR!!!

Put this meal at the top of your must make list!  It was one of the best things our family has had.  You can even serve this over pasta making it a delicious meal.

You guys are going to love this just as much as we did!

  1. I’ve tried it with both chicken and shrimp. Slightly easier to make with shrimp (if they are already peeled), and I like shrimp more than chicken in general. But both versions are delicious! We snip fresh basil on top when serving. Yum!

    Note: When using shrimp, I saute them most of the way through before removing from the pan to make the sauce. Then I finish them off in the sauce.

  2. How long do we add the chicken back to the pan for? If we add it and serve it right away, I worry it wouldn’t absorb the sauce at all, and there wouldn’t be much point, but I am also afraid of overdoing it, too.

    1. You could also leave out the chicken broth. A similar recipe doesn’t include chicken broth in the ingredients. Either way, it’s a delicious recipe….love it!

      1. I think next time I’ll use half the chicken broth. Still a very delicious meal. I substituted sweet peppers in place of sun dried tomatoes. And a side of Zucchini Zoodles!!

  3. This recipe is delicious! I did thicken the sauce up a little with cornflour and used 3 cloves of crushed fresh garlic rather than garlic powder and served it with cauliflower/broccoli/kale rice… highly recommend it!

  4. Love the recipe for creamy Tuscan garlic chicken and want to make it for a family birthday party however some are allergic to milk. What would b the best non dairy substitute for the heavy cream for this particular recipe?

        1. I am not sure where you see oil or 1 cup together. There is olive oil for 2 tablespoons but and 1 cup of heavy cream but other than that there is no 1 cup of oil. I hope that helps clarify and here is the list of ingredients for you with their measurements.
          1½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
          2 Tablespoons olive oil
          1 cup heavy cream
          1/2 cup chicken broth
          1 teaspoon garlic powder
          1 teaspoon italian seasoning
          1/2 cup parmesan cheese
          1 cup spinach, chopped
          1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes

  5. This was AMAZING!!! Will make again. Made with cherry tomatoes instead and bow tie pasta. Married well with a side salad with avocado and parm cheese.

  6. This was super easy, so yummy and a fam favorite. I served it over zoodles and it upped the veggie game of this dish. It will definitely be put on the rotation. The sauce was perfect. You do have to keep stirring to allow the heavy cream to thicken but take your time. It was worth it. Im so excited there was left overs so i can have it for lunch. Two thumbs up!!

  7. For someone who cooks dinner every night for my family something new is always desired. Let me tell you this was easy to make and was delicious!!! Will be making again!

  8. This was amazing! My 5 year old had seconds and licked her plate clean! We served it with zucchini, which tasted great in the sauce.

  9. This is one of the best meals I have cooked in a while. It really does taste like a restaurant meal. Sooooo good. I fried the chicken and then cut it up before adding it back to the thickened sauce and then mixed the entire pan up with a box of cooked penne. SOO GOOD! I have sent this link to all of my friends raving about it, so delicious 🙂
    I also used fresh garlic, and some extra parmesan.

  10. Tonight I just made a very similar recipe with salmon and it was absolutely amazing. It did not use chicken broth although it would have added another good flavor and I did think about it. But I did add extra Parmesan and after I turned off the heat and let it sit the sauce did start to thicken up more. I can’t do carbs so we ate with veggies. Husband and I can’t wait to try this variation with chicken!
