Creamy Tuscan Chicken
Featured in: "Daffodil Season"
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
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.

Get that “restaurant-dinner vibe” without leaving the house! This dish is rich, flavorful, and perfect to serve with your favorite pasta. The sun-dried tomatoes and spinach really make the sauce’s flavors pop. Turn up the heat with more garlic and red-pepper flakes; or add other veggies, such as green peppers. Want extra sauce? Just add more chicken broth, milk and extra cream cheese to the pan.
