This creamy Tuscan chicken is definitely one of my new favorite meals to make. It would be great for a go to meal as well as a fancy, romantic dinner. The sun dried tomatoes, garlic, and parmesan give so much amazing flavor that just can’t be beat. I love it for meal prepping. Not only does it reheat really well, but you can serve the chicken over noodles, orzo, rice, or just eat by itself. Even my picky eater boyfriend, who doesn’t like tomatoes or spinach, loved this! So I think the kiddos would approve as well. The best part is, it only takes around 30 minutes!

Season chicken with paprika, parsley, oregano, salt & pepper.

Pour sauce over chicken, bake, and top with spinach.

Serve over noodles!

    OMG, we loved this recipe. Tasted and looked restaurant quality but better! Easy to put together, we made gnocchi and green beans to complete the dinner. Plenty for 3. Was concerned there wouldn't be enough sauce, but once the chicken baked and let out its juice, it was perfect. Thanks for sharing.
