This meal tasted as good as it looks! I don’t care for white meat but cooked this way it was absolutely delicious! I added some fettuccine to soak up that delicious sauce that is flavored with freshly grated parmesan cheese, garlic and Italian seasonings. Toss in some spinach and fresh tomatoes…….amazing!

For all the real Italians cooks reading this, I am not Italian and this is just my version of Tuscan Chicken so go easy on me. All I can say is where has this been all my life!
