Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken

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. This dish is full of creamy goodness and bold Italian flavors. It is fairly hearty all on its own since it is loaded with so many great veggies like spinach, artichoke, and sun dried tomatoes. You can serve it simply for a quick weeknight meal, or get a little more elaborate if you are having guests, but either way, this creamy Tuscan garlic chicken will shine.
