    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.

    I cannot eat olives or mushrooms, do you think without them it would drastically alter the flavor of the dish?

      It will not change the flavor drastically. It won’t be the same but it will still be delicious. Hope you enjoy it!

    I picked up Chickpeas by mistake, dinner was still fabulous! For me, the sun-dried tomatoes and the olives I added kicked this up to making my rotation.
