Tuscan Chicken

Every bite of this tuscan chicken is a mini flavor trip to the beautiful countryside of Italy. In today’s world of the pandemic any mini trip is welcomed in my book! This is the perfect dish if you love Italian food and are wanting to mix up your traditional meal of bland chicken breasts. From spinach to olives to sun-dried tomatoes this meal is not only flavor packed but also veggie packed. Additionally it is a one pan meal so minimal clean up is involved. This recipe makes 2 servings.
