One Skillet Tuscan Chicken

One Skillet Tuscan Chicken

This one skillet Tuscan chicken is just SO good and satisfying. Plus, it comes together quickly, perfect for those busy weeknights.

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 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, Cannelini 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 am starting to really venture into one-pot dishes. I know this is one my daughter and husband will love (though I am sure she will pick around the olives, haha!)

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      I know, one pot dishes are the best! 🙂 Easy prep and cleanup!

  • Julia

    One pot dishes are by far my favorite during the week. Less dishes is always a winner in my book. I love the combination in this dish–the mushrooms and the white beans sound like such a great addition!

    Neli, thanks. This was simple to prepare and cook, used more or less everyday stock cupboard items and was delicious. Tony

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Thanks Tony! I’ m glad you enjoyed it!! 🙂 If you are looking for more delicious one pot meals, I have several here on the blog. They are my favorite weeknight dinners! 🙂

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Hi Katrena, glad you liked it! 🙂 Yes, one pot meals are very easy to make and this one is so delicious!

  • Ashlyn ~ Dollop of Yum

    This recipe looks delicious and I love how it’s made in one skillet! It would make a really convenient weeknight meal. I included it in my “Kick Start The New Year #2: 15 Healthy Dinners” post!

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Thanks, Ashlyn!!
      I am heading over to your blog to check it out. 🙂

  • Sonya

    Made it tonight for dinner! Super easy, filling, and delicious!! Great that it’s healthy too!

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Thanks Sonya!! SO glad you liked it! 🙂

  • Nathan Williams

    Tasty, but the recipe text needs some editing. It never mentions adding the mushrooms back in – “at the end, with the chicken” is what I did and it was fine. Similarly, the prep to the chicken breasts should be mentioned – asking for “chicken breasts” in the ingredient list but “cubed chicken pieces” in the directions is not great.

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      I am glad you liked the recipe, Nathan! Thanks for your comment and pointing out those two things to me. I edited the post, and added the mushrooms to the recipe directions at the end, as well as “cubed” in the ingredients directions. Hope that makes the cooking process for all my readers easier! 🙂

  • Lisa Bonacci

    This recipe was AWESOME! Definitely adding it to my meal rotation. I’m an olive lover so I added extra olives.

    I do have to say though, my boyfriend and I aren’t big eaters, and we thought this meal more appropriately serves 3 people.

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Thanks, Lisa! another olive lover here – you can never have enough olives 🙂 I am glad you liked the recipe!
      I will have to make it again soon to check the servings sizes. I am sorry you ended up with only 3 servings.

      • Lisa Bonacci

        thank you again, this meal has become a staple in my house. Although I’ve modified it a bit. I now use a whole can of olives, double the mushrooms, a whole onion, and double the “wet” things. I also put it over linguini or angel hair (it’s awesome, although no longer “one pot” lol). When I do this, it serves 4 till we’re stuffed. I usually make it for the two of us and then eat it as leftovers the next day.

        • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

          That sounds delicious! Love all your additions! Olives are my favorite and I add extra of them too. 🙂

  • Christine Q

    This is one of the best recipes! We are trying to eat healthier and don’t want to sacrifice taste. We added a sprinkle of shredded parmesan on top too! My husband and I loved this!!! I will definitely make it again!!! Thank you for such a great recipe!!

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Thanks, Christine! Glad you and your husband enjoyed this meal! 🙂

  • Cindy

    I have made this several times!! healthy, easy and so good. never any left overs!

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Thanks, Cindy! I will be featuring your comment on Delicious Meets Healthy’s facebook page. 🙂 So glad to hear you love this recipe!

  • Randy

    We don’t care if this is a one-pot or a twenty-pot meal — this is some kind of tasty. Mind you, that it is a one-pot meal sure makes it easy.

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Great! Glad you liked it! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  • Adrienne

    Delicious and easy!

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Thank you! 🙂

  • Julie

    I added a bag of frozen (but heated through) artichoke hearts, which made this extra delish. Great recipe.

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Hi Julie, love the addition of artichoke hearts, sounds delicious! Glad you liked it! 🙂

  • Glenna

    I have just one comment. I had to print an additional full page to get the nutritional info, which I like to keep with my recipes. It would be nice if that option was included when printing the recipe. Or, did I miss something?

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Hi Glenna, you didnt miss anything. Unfortunately the recipe card doesn’t have the option to include the nutritional info chart. I wish it did too. I have to additionally include the nutritional info for each recipe.
      But I am working on finding a better solution for this. Thanks for letting me know, your input is appreciated! 🙂
      Hope your enjoy the recipe!

  • Anne Murphy

    That looks delicious! I’m all about one pot meals, and love beans and meat combos, so this is perfect.

  • 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 (author)

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

  • Roy (at Poc)

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

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

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

  • Kate

    I love the ease of one-pot meals and this looks great, particularly with those lovely olives!

  • J@BlessHerHeartYall

    Now this is what I call a delicious dinner! I need to go to the store and pick up a few ingredients and then I’m making this bad boy! Yum!

  • Roshani Khanna

    Wow, really, I can’t get over that delicious taste! So simple and yet – sooo great. Thank you for this recipe – it’s a real keeper

  • Shannon

    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 (author)

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

  • Suzanne

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

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Absolutely!

  • Nikta Arora

    Oh yum, they look amazing…I could eat them now. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

  • Dee

    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 (author)

      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! 🙂

  • Diane

    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 (author)

      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. 🙂

  • 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 (author)

      Awesome! So glad you liked it!! 🙂

  • Magdalen

    Can you freeze it?

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Hi Magdalen, yes, it freezes well.
