Creamy Tuscan Chicken is a one-skillet dish that’s oh so rich and satisfying. It’s low carb, family friendly, and sure to be a hit thanks to that creamy flavorful sauce!

I’ve had a thing for chicken cooked with dreamy creamy sauces lately. 

There is just something so filling and satisfying and indulgent about a cream sauce, especially when it’s literally bursting with flavor like this one.


Sun-dried tomatoes add a huge punch of flavor to this whole dish and I add in a little spinach and garlic for good measure. 

The chicken is juicy and moist, the sauce is something you might want to drink with a straw, and the whole dish is just divine. 

Can’t wait for you to give it a try and report back. I want to know what you think of this creamy tuscan chicken recipe! 

Tuscan Chicken recipe:

To start, we’ll season up some thin-sliced chicken breasts with a little paprika, garlic powder, and salt.

Cook the chicken in a heavy bottomed pot (such as a cast iron skillet) in a bit of butter until the chicken is cooked through.

Remove the chicken from the skillet and add in your cream, sun-dried tomatoes, and garlic.

Let that cook for a few minutes to infuse all the flavor from the tomatoes and garlic into the sauce.

Add in some chopped spinach and cook until wilted.

Pop your chicken back into the skillet with the sauce and you’re good to go! 

Dinner is served!

You could serve this up with some cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles or with a side of steamed broccoli.

Either way, this recipe is absolutely mouth watering.

Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Juicy chicken with a creamy flavorful sauce full of sun-dried tomatoes and garlic!

Yield 4 servings
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 thin sliced chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chopped spinach

Instructions

  1. Combine the paprika, garlic powder, and salt and sprinkle evenly over both sides of the chicken to coat.
  2. Heat a large, heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add the butter to the skillet.
  3. When the butter has melted add the chicken breasts and cook 5 minutes per side or until cooked through.
  4. Remove the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  5. Add the heavy cream, sun-dried tomatoes, and garlic to the pan and stir well to combine. Let the sauce cook for 2 minutes to thicken over low heat.
  6. Add the spinach and stir well. Continue cooking over low heat until spinach has wilted and sauce has thickened, about 3 minutes.
  7. Return the chicken to the skillet and coat with the sauce.
  8. Serve immediately.

Notes

Heavy cream will make the thickest, creamiest sauce - milk will not work as a substitute.

  1. Wow! A friend of mine made this as part of a meal train for my husband and I. I hurt my back and am unable to stand for long periods of time. I heated it back up on the stove as instructed and added the fresh spinach at that time. It was so good! My husband who is a volunteer firefighter got home late from training and was very hungry. This filled him up which is no easy task. Now I have the recipe and it will become a staple for many of our group game nights! Thank you so much for this!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it! What a sweet friend to make it for you. I hope your back is feeling better soon!

  2. Made this for dinner last night. Ohmygoodness! I have never tasted anything more delicious, and my husband loved it, too. I made it exactly like the recipe, but used sundried tomatoes because I had them, and they were perfect . Make this! It’s restaurant quality in every way. Thank you so much for the recipe.

      Hi Patricia! I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe so much! We call for sun-dried tomatoes here, so sounds like you followed the same recipe either way. 🙂 So glad this was such a big hit!

  3. My kids and I ❤️ this. It was are first time trying it. I will add this to our list. Very good and creamy.

  4. This is to die for! I can tell it’s going to be a regular for my husband in me, in our rotation of low-carb dinners, for SURE! I added a bunch of chopped mushrooms just because, well, we love them! I feel like a few other delicious additions would be fresh chopped fried bacon, and, for those not watching cards, maybe 10-12 cooked baby red potatoes. This recipe was SO good!

  5. Made tonight. Just had 2 breasts since I’m cooking for 2 tonight but had enough left over for a 3rd serving. Added a few mushrooms to sautéed chicken and some green onions that needed used. I used 2 cups of spinach. Served over penne pasta so added some pasta water to thin and made more sauce. I did add some shaved Parmesan on top. Garlic bread and we had dinner. Delicious!
