Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Posted by

Creamy Tuscan Chicken sure is a classic that I can never have enough. Mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and sundried tomatoes come together in this Italian dish to leave you craving more. Plus, the added advantage of being a one-pot meal makes it even better. 

It pairs beautifully with some bread or spaghetti. With the season change in the offing coupled with a cool breeze early in the morning, I wanted something indulgent over the weekend. 

It was a quick, easy meal with just a handful of ingredients. The drizzle of sundried tomatoes oil, rich in flavors, adds an edge to this already delicious dish. I used a mix of fresh and preserved tomatoes to make it a little more interesting. 

Try this rustic dish as it transports you the exotic locales of Tuscany, Italy.
