Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken

Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken is bursting with flavors of garlic, parmesan and garnished with spinach and sun dried tomatoes.

A Teaspoon of HomeI love making something that tastes like I spent a pretty penny to make. You know, the kind of food that could totally be served in a restaurant for a high price. This creamy Tuscan garlic chicken would definitely be on that list. I was surprised by how simple it was to make, but the flavor is almost indescribable.

I know something is good when my husband goes back for thirds! Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken is really that good! You can make it as a chicken piece for a meal or serve it over noodles. My entire family loved it and I loved the lingering smell from all of those savory ingredients. Not only that, but it reheats perfectly if you’re wanting to reheat it throughout the week.

My only advice, be patient with the sauce. I was expecting it to thicken faster than it did and almost started over because it wasn’t thickening. I feel like it’s a lot like making Alfredo sauce—you heat and then rest and during the rest it thickens. Same goes with this sauce, but the wait is totally worth it!
