This creamy Tuscan chicken recipe combines chicken breast, fresh spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and parmesan cheese, all mixed in a delicious creamy sauce! Plus, it’s ready in 30 minutes!


  • 2 big or 4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts (600 g)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (120 g)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, sliced (50 g)
  • 2 cups heavy cream (480 ml)
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese (60 g)
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach (150g)
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  1. First, season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour.
  2. Heat a pan over medium heat and add half of the butter.
  3. Then, cook the chicken on each side, and when cooked, transfer the chicken to a plate and set it aside.
  4. Add the remaining butter to the pan, melt, and saute the garlic and onion until soft.
  5. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, saute to combine the flavors, and pour the heavy cream into the pan. Add the parmesan cheese, and simmer until it reduces slightly.
  6. Finally, add the spinach and gently stir to combine with the sauce. Return the chicken to the pan, then spoon sauce over the top and serve.
