Cooking time was 30 mins start to finish. I paired it with zucchini noodles, but this would also taste great with any veggie or pasta.

Ingredients for The Creamy Tuscan Chicken

  • * 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breast tenders
  • * 1 teaspoon salt
  • * 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • * 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • * 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

For The Sauce:

  • * 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • * 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • * 3 oz jarred sun-dried tomato strips in oil drained (reserve 1 tablespoon of the oil for cooking)
  • * 3/4 cup heavy or thickened cream
  • * 1/4 cup chicken broth (more depending on thickness of sauce)
  • * 3 cups spinach, chopped
  • * 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • * 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley to serve

Instructions For The  Creamy Tuscan Chicken

* Season chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika. 
* Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken for 6-8 minutes each side, or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a warm plate; set aside. 
* Add the remaining olive oil and fry the garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds to 1 minute); then add in the sun-dried tomatoes with 1 tablespoon sun-dried tomato oil into the pan. Fry for 1-2 minutes to release their flavors. 
* Reduce heat to low-medium heat; add the cream and chicken broth and bring to a simmer 4-5 minutes while stirring occasionally. Season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to your taste. 
* Add in the chopped spinach leaves and allow to wilt in the sauce, then add in the parmesan cheese. Allow sauce to simmer on low for another 1-2 minutes until cheese melts through the sauce. 
* Add the chicken back into the pan; top with parsley and serve over zucchini noodles or steamed veggie.
