Creamy Cast Iron Tuscan Chicken

I get a very comforting feeling every single time I use a cast iron skillet. My grandmother would use her cast iron for almost everything she prepared and it seemed to make everything taste a little better. I literally prepare all of my chicken dishes in a cast iron and my Creamy Cast Iron Tuscan Chicken is no different.

Not only is this recipe full of flavor, but it has a great creamy sauce that is perfect with just about anything. If you want add a little more depth to this recipe you can make a side of rice, mashed potatoes or even pasta for a heartier meal. However, if a low carb alternative is your mission, then you can definitely enjoy the chicken as is accompanied with some steamed or roasted veggies.

The Tuscan flavor profile includes herbs and spices like oregano, parsley, rosemary, thyme and a few more which turns these simple ingredients into a great meal. Well-seasoned boneless chicken breast teamed up with fresh leaf spinach and cherry tomatoes makes this an awesome dinner option but when you add the additional cream to the mix it makes this recipe a lot more versatile.

When you want to add some great flavor to your dinner table give this Cast Iron Creamy Tuscan Chicken a try and add smiles to your family’s face. Plus, this meal can be on your dinner table in 30 minutes or less. You really can’t beat that. 🙂
