Coming at y'all this week with another easy weeknight chicken breast recipe: Creamy Tuscan Chicken -- boneless, skinless chicken breasts smothered in a rich, creamy spinach and sun dried tomato sauce that's been thickened and flavored with parmesan to keep this a low carb / keto dinner recipe everyone in the family can enjoy.
Truth be told, I'm not even a HUGE fan of sun dried tomatoes. Something about the texture just doesn't do it for me.
But when cooked in this creamy chicken sauce, they soften up even more and become quite delightful, even for someone like me who usually doesn't love them, which is why I'm recommending this creamy sun dried tomato chicken to everyone I know.
But do you know what I always DO love? PASTA. So yes, this is easily a keto chicken dinner if you serve it with some veggies, but I love to turn it into a Tuscan chicken pasta by serving it over fettuccine.
And like my Creamy Rosemary Chicken, this is another one that's great over zoodles or cauliflower rice too. It's all about whatever floats your boat.
