Low Carb Tuscan Chicken and Mushrooms

This is a delicious recipe and another win with the family. There were no leftovers either. I like having leftovers but I think I prefer my family liking a recipe so much that they eat it all the first night it is served. This Tuscan chicken with mushrooms is delicious. My mushroom hating kid even ate the mushrooms. The spinach is almost undetectable in this dish. I don’t care for cooked spinach but this was so good.

I was going to serve this as shown, no pasta or anything. My son came into the kitchen and asked where the pasta was. I had just bought some dreamfields angel hair pasta, so I decided to change up my recipe a little. The recipe will be my original recipe, but if you want to serve this over a low carb pasta alternative, I will share what I did. Trim healthy mama “allows” dreamfields pasta occasionally. I have it around twice a month. I like spaghetti squash and zoodles but my hubby doesn’t care for them.

To serve this over a low carb pasta alternative, I cut up the chicken and put it back in the skillet. I added an extra can of the diced tomatoes and added about a 1/2 cup of hot water. This made it saucy enough to go over some sort of pasta.

With or without pasta, this is delicious. It is also another busy night recipe winner. This Tuscan chicken and mushroom recipe doesn’t require constant watching either. I was able to do other work in the kitchen while I cooked this dinner. I made everything in the same skillet but you could grill or bake your chicken. I didn’t want to turn my oven on so this was a perfect skillet meal. Add the ingredients to your shopping list this week. I don’t think you will be disappointed with this recipe.
