    One Skillet Tuscan Chicken

    As you have probably noticed, I love one-pot and one-skillet recipes. If you haven’t tried these yet, you should check out two of my favorite weeknight meals – One Skillet Tilapia Veracruz and the One Skillet Chicken Puttanesca. They are simple, quick, and easy to make. And of course delicious and healthy! 🙂

    I just love when something delicious is also healthy, don’t you? The Cannellini beans are a great addition to this meal and turn this one skillet Tuscan chicken into a super filling quick meal. If you want to make it paleo, skip the Cannellini beans.

    How To Make One Skillet Tuscan Chicken

    What you need

    • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
    • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
    • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
    • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
    • 1 (15 oz) can Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed
    • 1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
    • 1/3 cup black olives
    • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil or ghee
    • 1 Tbsp honey
    • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tsp oregano
    • 1 tsp thyme
    • 2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped for garnish
    • Salt & pepper to taste


    Preparation

    In a large cast iron skillet heat oil over medium heat, add the cubed chicken pieces and cook for about 8 minutes on both sides, until cooked through. Remove chicken and transfer to a plate.

    Add 1 Tbsp of olive oil to the skillet and sauté the sliced mushrooms 5 – 7 minutes until the mushrooms are tender and the juices have evaporated. Set aside.

    Add another 1 Tbsp olive oil to the skillet and the diced onion. Sauté the onions 3 – 4 minutes until translucent. Add the minced garlic to the onions and sauté together one more minute. Add salt and pepper to taste while cooking.

    Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to the skillet and toss the diced tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, Cannellini beans, and black olives. Season again with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Sprinkle in the oregano, thyme and drizzle the balsamic vinegar and honey. Stir a few minutes.

    Next, add the cooked chicken and mushrooms to the skillet – stir and cook 1-2 minutes, or until chicken is heated through. Add more salt and pepper if needed.

    Serve hot, garnished with the fresh basil.

    This meal was so delicious, I couldn’t get enough of it.

    We made this tonight and loved it! We did change a few things based on our vegetarian diet: we added about 1 cup shredded spinach and subbed Quorn for the chicken. We also used 14 oz can of fire roasted diced tomatoes in place of the fresh/sun dried tomatoes. We will make this again!

    I made your skillet Tuscan chicken. It was delicious. Thanks very much for the recipe.

    Courtney

    Will definitely make again! Healthy comfort food 🙂

    Janice Hilstad

    This looks delicious, and I would like to make it. But first….where is the 14 grams of polyunsaturated fat coming from?

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Janice,

      I am sorry for the confusion. I just reran the recipe and the nutritional information was updated. There is no polyunsaturated fat.
      Thanks for checking!

    Can you freeze it?

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Magdalen, yes, it freezes well.

    Kathy Humann

    Using what I had in the kitchen….I substituted a can organic black beans, left out the mushrooms only because I had none and instead of sundried tomatos I used a couple tablespoons of tomato puree I had in the freezer. DELICIOUS! Even my picky hubby loved it! This recipe is a keeper! Thank you!

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Awesome! So glad you liked it!! 🙂

    I made this Recipe and similar to Lisa Boracic, I doubled mushrooms and quadrupled the tomatoes and garlic (we love our garlic). I cooked up some Wheat pasta el dente, and when it was time to add the chicken (I left my mushrooms in) I also added my pasta, which soaked up the delicious juices and flavors!! Don’t get me wrong I put in enough tomatoes so we still had a sauce to pour over this DELICIOUS RECIPE. It was a hit with my husband the first night! Second night my Daughter came over and visited and shared left-overs with us and she also loved it. Now tomorrow night I am making it again for Hubby and my Mom – I cannot wait to see if she likes it as much as we do!! Delicious and Healthy the way we like to eat

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      So glad to hear that you and your family loved this recipe! 🙂 The sauce is so delicious, isnt’t it? Your additions of pasta, more mushrooms, tomatoes & garlic sound sound great! More sauce, more deliciousness! This one skillet recipe is a favorite in our home too. 🙂

    Do you think this could work without the honey? I. In phase one of the South zbeach diet so trying to make is fit in.

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      It will definitely work without the honey. It might not taste quite the same. If you wish, you can add another sweetener like maple syrup. Happy cooking! 🙂

    Would black beans be an okay substitute for the white beans?

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Absolutely!

    I made this last night. Didn’t have mushroom and black olives, and added potatoes and chicken broth. Followed everything else exactly. DELICIOUS. My husband and I couldn’t stop eating it. I will be making variations of this as the weather cools off. YUM!

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      The addition of potatoes sounds really good! I am glad you and your husband loved it! Thanks for stopping by, Shannon! 🙂

    I cant take my eyes off the colours. I am trying new flavours recently and this just sounds perfect to the rainy days. 🙂

      Thanks, Roy! I agree, it’s a perfect comfort meal for rainy days.

    Carla

    This looks so tasty and I would love to try it, but could you please clarify if the oregano and thyme are fresh or dried? Thank you!

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Carla, they are dried. 🙂 Happy cooking! Hope you enjoy this recipe!
