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

    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! ๐Ÿ™‚

    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

    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 sautรฉ 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. Sautรฉ the onions 3 – 4 minutes until translucent. Add the minced garlic to the onions and sautรฉ 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 โ€“ 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.

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

    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

      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! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Hope your enjoy the recipe!

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

    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.

      Great! Glad you liked it! Thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!!

      Thanks, Christine! Glad you and your husband enjoyed this meal! ๐Ÿ™‚

    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

      Thanks, Lisa! another olive lover here – you can never have enough olives ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.

        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

          That sounds delicious! Love all your additions! Olives are my favorite and I add extra of them too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    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

      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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

    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!

    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!)
