Bring to a boil, then turn down to low heat. Add these, stirring as you go:

½ c. roasted dried tomatoes, drained and chopped

4-6 oz. cream cheese, cut in cubes

2 c. fresh spinach, chopped

¼ c. grated Parmesan cheese

 

Once the cream cheese is melted and the sauce is fully combined, add the chicken back to the skillet and heat through. Serve over pasta. Makes 4-5 servings.

Slow cooker option: I always make this on the stove, but other versions of this recipe allow for set-it-and-forget prep. Search for "creamy Tuscan chicken" online and you'll find several variations of this dish!

18-20 oz. chicken breast, cut into pieces

1-2 t. margarine or oil

Add to the skillet, stirring to combine ingredients and gather up any leftover chicken bits in the pan:

½ c. chicken broth (or water and chicken bouillon granules to taste)

¼ c. milk

1 t. minced garlic

½ t. red pepper flakes

1 t. Italian seasoning
