Sun Dried Tomato Tuscan chicken
Baked Tuscan Chicken
I am always trying to come up with meals that are full of flavor, easy to make and remind me of something that I would get if I were going out to eat. I find that making restaurant quality meals at home drastically reduces the amount of eating out that we do and I am always wanting to cut back on our spending when I can.
The one reason that chicken is my go to meat is that there are so many baked chicken dinner recipes that you can make and none of them taste even remotely the same. Adding different spices, and ingredients makes it so easy to give chicken breast a different flavor every time you make it.
Since we are always so busy I have been having my oldest daughter help me cook dinner at times to. She is 14 years old and she was able to cook this Sun Dried Tomato Tuscan chicken recipe with ease when I had her make it for dinner one night after we came up with the recipe.

We normally serve this easy tuscan chicken with a salad chuck full of veggies and one of our favorite salad dressings.
Since tuscan chicken is naturally low carb, if I am not serving this tuscan chicken recipe over pasta or zoodles then I make some steamed or roasted veggies and call it a day.
Sometimes we make this easy Tuscan chicken recipe and serve it over pasta making it a tuscan chicken pasta recipe. When we do that, I make zucchini noodles for myself and serve it over my zoodles. If you are serving it over pasta or zoodles, you can add some extra heavy cream and chicken stock and it will thin the tuscan chicken sauce enough to be an amazing pasta sauce recipe!
