How to Make Low-Carb creamy Tuscan Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes

To begin, bake your chicken breasts in a covered dish with the butter, salt and pepper.

Next, add in the heavy cream, chopped zucchini, onion powder and sun dried tomatoes about half way through.

You’ll want to make sure the chicken is cooked well enough before the final touch. Finally, sprinkle on some magic with parmesan cheese just before removing from the oven.

How to make Tuscan chicken with garlic or spinach

If you like a bit more flavor, add in some fresh garlic cloves to this creamy, cheesy Tuscan chicken bake. 

Love spinach? Instead of zucchini, try pan-searing your chicken, then frying on low. Simply add in a cup or two of fresh spinach to the mix, while the chicken finishes. That’s what I call an easy one-pan dinner winner! 

Sides for Tuscan chicken casserole 

Since casseroles are already a one-dish dinner, I typically serve a salad for a starter. A nice Greek salad with onion, olives, green peppers and tomatoes.
