This chicken recipe is just what you need! Marinated in fresh garlic, red pepper and italian seasonings then topped with spinach, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms creating layers of delicious flavors you can't resist.


Tuscan Chicken with Spinach, Artichokes, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Mushrooms

This Tuscan chicken is one of those recipes that ends up on repeat in our house. The slight spice from the red pepper marinade, fresh garlic and sweetness of the sun dried tomatoes makes this dish everything you need and more. This recipe is an easy meal packed full of flavor. It's perfect to serve for a family dinner, when having company, or like me when you're trying to prep dinner ahead of the evening meltdown hours. While doable, holding a hangry crying toddler and cooking isn't the easiest. I'll marinate my chicken the day before, put the dish together in the pan while my kids are napping and it's ready to go in to the oven leaving very minimal hands on time. I'll add a steam in bag rice/quinoa side to go with it (we love this one) making it a full meal.

Some other ideas to serve this dish include with a side of mashed potatoes, over pasta, rice or another grain such as quinoa or couscous. Or for a low carb option try it with a side of cauliflower rice, sautéed green like spinach or kale or over zoodles. The possibilities are endless and they're all delicious.
