How To Make Creamy Tuscan Garlic Sauce For Chicken?

  1. After browning the seasoned chicken breasts and transferring them to a plate, add ½ tbsp of olive oil to the same skillet and saute the minced garlic for 30 seconds.
  2. Pour in the white wine to deglaze the skillet, scraping the bottom to release anything stuck to it, and simmer until reduced by half.
  3. Add the chicken broth, heavy cream, Italian seasoning, parmesan cheese, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes. Simmer until slightly thick and the spinach has wilted.
  4. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook until heated through.

Can I Freeze Creamy Sauces?

You can, but the consistency won’t be the same after they thaw. I would rather you cook the sauce without adding the heavy cream and freeze it. Whenever you are ready to cook the chicken and add the sauce, thaw it out, heat it up and add the heavy cream just before serving the dish.

  • After browning the seasoned chicken breasts and transferring them to a plate, add ½ tbsp of olive oil to the same skillet and saute the minced garlic for 30 seconds.

Notes

  • Don’t forget to season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Do not use oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, they will make the sauce greasy.
  • To properly brown the chicken breasts, make sure the skillet and oil are hot before placing the breasts on it, and don’t move them for 3 mins.
