Description

This creamy Tuscan chicken soup is a delicious and easy dinner recipe! Juicy chicken breasts are simmered in a luxurious cream sauce with parmesan cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, onions and plenty of spinach.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoningor a mix of individual spices such as oregano, thyme, basil, and rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic clovesminced
  • ¼ cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoesthinly sliced
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream*see the note above for dairy-free options
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan

Instructions

  1. Prep the chicken. Season both sides of each chicken breast in Italian, salt, and pepper.
  2. Sear the chicken. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and sear for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden. Remove the chicken from the pan to a plate and set it aside.
  3. Cook the onions. In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of oil and the onion. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes until the onion has softened.
  4. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and garlic and saute another minute until fragrant.
  5. Add the spinach, and saute another minute until just starting to wilt.
  6. Add the heavy cream and parmesan cheese, stir together and bring to a simmer.
  7. Let it simmer. Place the chicken back in the skillet until heated for about 5 minutes.

Notes

  • I’d recommend 1 to 2 tablespoons for dairy-free folks swapping in nutritional yeast.
  • If you have two super thick chicken breasts, you could also butterfly each one and cook with those 4 pieces.
