How to Make Low Carb Tuscan Chicken

Prepare the Garlic Spice Mix: Peel and crush the garlic cloves. Mix them with a pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Prep the Chicken: Cut the chicken breasts into thin strips. Rub these strips with your garlic spice mix, coating them evenly. You can use chicken thighs if you like.

Cut and season chicken

Cook the Chicken: In a large pan, melt the butter or olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken strips. Cook each side until they turn golden brown, which should take a few minutes per side.

Cook chicken in butter

Add Flavors to make the creamy sauce: Once the chicken is browned, pour in the chicken broth. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, sour cream, and a bay leaf to the pan. Gently stir everything together. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning over the top. Let this cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

I personally find that chicken and cream together are always a great option, and even better with a special touch of the sun-dried tomatoes and a good combination of varied spices.

Add chicken broth and sour cream

Finish with Greens and Cheese: Add the chopped spinach and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the chicken. Stir gently to mix. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the spinach wilts and the cheese melts.

Add spinach, Parmesan cheese

Serve: Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Remove the bay leaf before serving. Enjoy your creamy, flavorful One Pan Keto Tuscan Chicken in a serving bowl.

What do you eat Tuscan chicken with on keto?

On a keto diet, you can serve Tuscan chicken with low-carb sides like cauliflower rice, cauliflower mash, roasted zucchini, or a fresh mixed green salad. Sometimes, I pair it with zucchini noodles or low carb pasta.

How to reheat Tuscan chicken

To reheat Tuscan chicken, warm it gently in a skillet over medium-low heat until heated through, stirring occasionally, or microwave it at a lower power setting in short intervals, stirring in between to ensure even heating. If using frozen Tuscan chicken, thaw it overnight in the refrigerator first before reheating it.

Can I cook this dish using other methods besides a stove?

Yes, you can bake it in an oven, cook it in a slow cooker for a few hours to enhance the flavors, or use an instant pot or pressure cooker for a faster cooking process while retaining the dish’s moisture and taste. I don’t think you can use an Air Fryer though, if you’re wondering.
