  1. I love Tuscan garlic skillet chicken. We make it with heavy cream and white wine, as well as a large shredded spinach leaf, served with fettuccine pasta. Just glorious -you can be sure that it will be a hit wherever you serve it.

  2. I’ve made this dish twice already in a month, and with some family coming over this weekend.. I’m making it again! It’s so flavorful and easy, I’m in love with it!

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I made this tonight and it was really good! I love quick and easy recipes like this. I did make two small changes: I only used one can of the fire roasted tomatoes and I didn’t have sun dried tomatoes, but I did have a jar of sun dried tomato bruschetta so I used that instead. Yummy!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe; I’ll make it often.

  4. The recipe looks great but I’m wondering what kind of tomatoes I could sub for the fire roasted tomatoes (I’ve never seen them in the UK). Would ordinary tinned tomatoes be okay? What kind of flavor do they have when they’re fire roasted?
