Tuscan Creamy Chicken With Garlic, delicious creamy garlic sauce with chicken, spinach and sun-dried tomatoes. Italian cuisine is one of my favorite cuisine. We have been to Italy few months back and got a chance to explore deferent dishes out there. Italian cooking is very regional. Tuscany is a region in Central Italy and the food of Tuscany is very different from that prepared in the rest of Italy.
Tuscan tradition tends not to combine onions and garlic in the same dish. Butter is mostly used as a condiment at the table, rather than in cooking. Pasta plays a small role in the diet, but certainly not as big a role as it does in other parts of Italy. Tuscans, however, tend to eat more salads than other Italians, and a good deal of beans, particularly broad beans. In Tuscany they bake bread without salt. The downside about bread is that without the salt, it doesn't stay fresh as long, so Tuscan breads are often only good the day of their baking. So here I served this dish with bread slices and everyone liked it.
I bought few food stuff from Italy and started using it now. Tried this dish at home and liked it, so here is recipe for you all to try. Enjoy!
- Boneless Chicken Breasts 500gm, thinly sliced
- Fresh Cream 1 cup
- Olive Oil 2 or 3 tbsp
- Chicken Broth / Water 1/2 cup
- Garlic Cloves 2 nos, sliced
- Spinach 1 cup, chopped
- Garlic Powder 1 tsp
- Italian Seasoning 1 tsp
- Parmesan Cheese 1/2 cup
- Sun Dried Tomatoes 1/2 cup
Clean and cut chicken breast into thin slices and season it with salt and pepper and keep it aside for 10 minutes.
Heat a fry pan or skillet on medium flame with 1 tbsp of olive oil and fry the chicken pieces for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until brown on each side and cooked. Remove chicken pieces into a plate and keep it aside.
In the same pan add some more olive oil and add garlic slices and saute for few seconds. Now add fresh cream and chicken broth, once it start boiling add garlic powder, italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. Whisk over medium high heat until it starts to thicken, i didn't keep for so longer to get thicken because i served with bread so need some gravy. If you are serving on top of the pasta or spaghetti you need thicker gravy so make it accordingly. Add spinach and sundered tomatoes and let it simmer until the spinach becomes soft and cooked. Add the fried chicken pieces and simmer for 1 more minute and serve. Sprinkle some more parmesan cheese while serving. Enjoy ..
