This chicken recipe is a regular favorite at our dinner table, which when you have picky eaters as I do, it’s more like finding that pot of gold at the end of a rainbow when those previously referred to picky eaters actually eat and then ask for seconds.

What else can I substitute for white wine in this recipe?

I do enjoy using white wine in this recipe for the sauce, but if you prefer you can substitute it for chicken or vegetable broth, or even water, just be mindful of seasoning to taste. Just remember that if you are using water, you will need to boost up the seasoning but still go easy on adding too much at a time. It’s easier to add a little seasoning at a time, than to take it away.

Can this Tuscan chicken recipe be made dairy-free?

This recipe is so flexible, that if you are dairy-free, simply leave the cream and Parmesan cheese out. Check the seasoning, and adjust if needed with the salt and pepper, oregano, and garlic powder a little at a time.

What is a good spinach substitute?

Not a fan of spinach or simply don’t have any on hand? You can use other greens such as kale, collard greens, or try using zucchini ribbons or rounds in this Tuscan chicken recipe or others that call for spinach.

A gorgeous dinner recipe, Tuscan Chicken with greens and a creamy wine sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 - teaspoons dried garlic
  • 10 – 12 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup white wine, or chicken broth or water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cups grated Parmesan

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil, and butter until butter has melted.
  2. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, dried oregano, and garlic powder, then carefully add chicken and cook for about 8 minutes per side. Depending on how thick the chicken is, you may need to add a couple of minutes more per side or until no longer pink and juices run clear when cut.
  3. Add tomatoes, cooking until tomatoes are beginning to burst. Then add spinach, tucking it all around and cook until spinach is beginning to wilt. 
  4. Pour in the white wine, stirring it through, then add in heavy cream and parmesan and turn heat down to low, allowing it to simmer for about 10 – 15 minutes.
  5. Check seasoning and adjust if needed.

Notes

When using Parmesan, I tend to go easy on the salt since the Parmesan is salty. I find It’s always easier to allow individuals to season to their personal tastes.

You can substitute milk in place of cream.

If you are dairy-free, you can completely leave both the cream and parmesan cheese out of the recipe.

Kale can be substituted for the spinach.
