This simple recipe is made with chicken cutlets that are seasoned and dredged with flour.
Once cooked, they’re smothered in a rich sauce made with savory ingredients like spinach, sundried tomato, mushrooms, garlic, Asiago cheese, and Italian spices.
Now, I’ll let you in on a little secret!
To create a truly decadent cream sauce, there’s one ingredient that absolutely can’t be compromised: the cream, of course!
For me, the natural choice is to use Hood Cream, a brand that’s trusted by chefs as well as everyday consumers.
I’ve used Hood dairy products for years, and as I kid, I remember seeing their jugs and cartons in our fridge!
As an adult, I always use a splash of Hood Half & Half in my coffee for a rich, creamy caffeine kick first thing in the morning.
When it comes to dairy products (and your morning cup of coffee), you simply can’t skimp on quality!
So it should come as no surprise that when I created my Creamy Tuscan Chicken recipe, I automatically reached for Hood Heavy Cream.
In my opinion, it’s the key to making the best possible cream sauce.
In addition to being a quick and family-friendly meal, Creamy Tuscan Chicken is versatile and can be served a couple of different ways.
Naturally, it’s to die for over pasta (the noodles drenched in the cream sauce are so good — I recommend doubling the sauce recipe), or you can lighten it up with a side salad or a scoop of steamed broccoli.
As “back to school season” draws near, Creamy Tuscan Chicken is a wonderful recipe to have on hand for an easy and hearty dinner to prepare after a long day.
With its rich sauce and zesty flavors, this dish will definitely become a family favorite!
Life is busy, but you can make Creamy Tuscan Chicken for a gourmet 30-minute meal any night of the week.

Creamy Tuscan Chicken
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup Hood Heavy Cream
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
- 1/2 cup Asiago cheese, grated
- 1 cup baby spinach, packed
- 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
- 1/2 cup baby bella mushrooms, chopped
- fresh parsley, for garnish
- Parmesan Cheese, for topping
- Slice the chicken breasts in half to create 4 thin cutlets. Rub the chicken on both sides with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
- Spread the flour out on a medium plate and coat each of the chicken cutlets with flour.
- Add the olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook each side for 3 to 5 minutes until golden brown and an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached, transfer the chicken to a plate.
- Add the garlic and chicken broth to the pan and use a wooden spatula to scrape and deglaze the bottom of the pan, allow the broth to come to a simmer.
- Add in the Hood Heavy Cream, salt, pepper, Italian seasonings, and asiago cheese. Stir frequently until the cheese has melted. Bring the creamy mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently.
- Add in the vegetables and continue to stir until sauce begins to thicken and the spinach begins to wilt. Add the chicken back into the pan and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
- Serve by itself with a salad or with pasta*, garnish with parsley and add Parmesan cheese and additional salt and pepper to taste.
- If serving with pasta, I recommend doubling the sauce recipe.
- I use fresh sun-dried tomatoes, not the jarred kind. You can use the jarred kind, but I recommend draining and patting with a paper towel before adding to the sauce.
