How to make this Tuscan Chicken

Be sure to the bottom for the full recipe

  • Cook your chicken – Pound the breast then dredge in flour/Parmesan. Cook the chicken in a large skillet for 4-5 mins per side. Remove and cover in foil.
  • Make the sauce – In the same skillet, melt the Danish Creamery European Style Butter and add garlic and sun-dried tomatoes. Whisk in the flour to thicken then continue to add in the sauce ingredients, ending with the spinach.
  • Coat the chicken – Add the chicken back into the skillet and turn to coat in the sauce. Allow to continue to simmer until the chicken is heated through.
  • Garnish, serve and enjoy!

European Style Butter

You might remember me using Danish Creamery European Style Butter for my famous Brown Butter Banana Bread! I was so unbelievably impressed with the quality and value. Danish Creamery is always my go-to purchase at the grocery store, and I’ve since gotten my Mom obsessed!

I love using small batch butter in my recipes because I can trust the quality. I can trust that the cows are pasture-raised (always better!) and that each batch is churned by hand.

Using quality ingredients like Danish Creamery Butter takes this recipe from great to FABULOUS. It will become a trusted recipe in your dinner rotation for years to come!

What to serve with this creamy Tuscan Chicken

Tuscan Chicken plays well with a whole host of sides! Here are some ideas:

Storing Leftovers

If you have any leftovers(!) store in an airtight container and refrigerate within two hours of cooking. Cooked chicken will be safe in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Give the sauce a stir when re heating, to prevent curdling. The best way to reheat this Tuscan Chicken is on the stove top.

Add ins

This is a super hearty dish as is, but if you want to add some more ingredients or you have some seasonal produce you want out of the fridge, here are some ideas:

  • Kale
  • Mushrooms
  • Peas
  • Asparagus
  • Butternut Squash
  • A sprinkling of red chili flakes
  • Wholegrain Mustard

Recipe notes and tips

  • Cook your chicken in batches if needs be, so you don’t overcrowd your pan.
  • If cooking in batches, refresh your butter each time. Since butter has a lower smoke point, you don’t want it to burn as you cook your chicken. Butter infuses ALL the flavor when cooking, so it’s a must!
  • You can also use chicken thighs. Make sure to check doneness.
  • You can check the doneness of your chicken by inserting a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken – it should read at least 165F.
  • After cooking the chicken and just before making the sauce, use a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pan as the butter melts. The brown bits hold a lot of flavor, so no need to remove.
  • Heavy cream will make the thickest richest sauce.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley.
