Creamy Tuscan Chicken Pasta
First things first, let’s take a look at what you’ll need:
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 8 ounces cooked pasta
Now that we’ve got our ingredients together, let’s get cooking!
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant. Next, add the chicken breasts and cook until they’re browned on both sides and fully cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, add the cherry tomatoes and spinach. Cook until the tomatoes start to soften and release their juices, and the spinach wilts down. Next, pour in the heavy cream and stir in the grated Parmesan cheese. Let the sauce simmer for a couple of minutes until it thickens slightly.
While the sauce is simmering, cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and add it to the skillet with the sauce. Toss everything together until the pasta is coated in the creamy Tuscan sauce.
Slice the cooked chicken breasts into thin strips and place them on top of the pasta. Give everything one final toss to combine all the flavors.
