Quick And Easy One-Pot Tuscan Chicken

Cooking can sometimes be a bit of a hassle, especially when there’s a lot of dishes to clean up afterwards! Luckily you won’t have that problem with this absolutely divine one-pot tuscan chicken recipe – if you do, it will be worth it!


For the chicken
Salt ½ tsp
Pepper ½ tsp
Paprika ¼ tsp
Garlic powder 1 tsp
Italian herbs 2 tsp
Chicken breast fillets 4

For the creamy garlic and white-wine sauce
Vegetable oil 2 tbsp
Onion, finely chopped 1
Garlic cloves, minced 3
Italian herbs 2 tsp
Tomato paste 2 tbsp
Paprika ½ tsp
Cherry tomatoes 125 g
White wine ½ cup
Chicken stock 1 cup
Cream 1 cup
Parmesan 2 tbsp Baby spinach 2 cups

To serve
Fresh basil ¼ cup
Fresh bread loaf, toasted
For the chicken

1. Mix the salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and Italian herbs. Press the sides of the chicken into the seasoning mix, coating evenly.
2. Add some oil to a large pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken and cook for 3–4 minutes on each side until browned and golden. Remove the chicken from the heat and set aside.

For the creamy garlic and white-wine sauce
1. Glaze the same pan with more oil and reduce the heat to medium.
2. Fry the onion until softened. Add the garlic, Italian herbs, tomato paste, paprika and tomatoes. Fry until fragrant.
3. Add the white wine and using a wooden spoon, scrape any bits off of the base of the pan. Simmer for 2–3 minutes. Add the chicken stock and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, until reduced by half.
4. Keep the mixture on a simmer and stir through the cream, cheese and spinach. Place the chicken back into the pan. Spoon some sauce over the chicken to coat, then cover with a lid. Switch off the heat but keep the pan on the stove – this will allow the chicken to finish cooking through poaching.
5. Serve the Tuscan chicken with basil and some crusty bread on the side.
Top Tip Add a side of rice to this dish to bulk it up. It’s perfect for lunch the next day, too.

We love Indian food especially this simple butter chicken! It may be simple, but it is still packed with flavor and perfect for cosy winter evenings.
