Tuscan Chicken Pasta is a Mediterranean dish with a creamy sauce that is loaded with flavor. Seasoned and perfectly cooked chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, baby spinach, and more all in one comforting dish.

How to Make

Start by dicing your chicken into small bites, and get all the other ingredients measured and placed out.

In your skillet add in your oil, sundried tomatoes, seasonings and then the diced chicken.

Now you will reduce heat a bit, add your water and pasta. Let it cook for 12-15 minutes.

Next, you will work on creating the creamy based sauce. Add the ingredients in and cook as directed in the printable recipe card below.

Once ready dish up and serve with all your favorite sides.

Best Sides To Consider

  • Crisp Green Salad
  • Breadsticks, Dinner rolls, etc
  • Roasted or steamed vegetables
  • Etc

Get creative and pair with any or all your favorite sides, or count this as a meal in one if you would like.

Storing Leftovers

You are more than welcome to store any leftovers you may have. Just place them in a proper container and store in the fridge for a few days.

Then you can reheat in the microwave for a quick reheat, or stovetop. Now, if you do the stove you might find the sauce is a lot thicker. If you need add a splash of milk or even water to help thin the liquid a bit so it isn’t as thick as you heat it up.

Due to the creamy sauce you will find this recipe does not freeze and thaw properly. The sauce will curdle a bit, the pasta will be softer in texture.

So for that I don’t recommend freezing your leftovers.

Can I Use Gluten Free Pasta

If you are gluten-free you can absolutely reach for a gluten-free pasta to replace. The key is to make sure the pasta gets fully cooked. If you run into needing to add extra liquid go ahead as it cooks.
