Tuscan style is rustic but simple. No heavy sauces yet blends of blends of vegetables, herbs, and olive oils. Cooking this way really makes the natural flavours stand out.

This is one reason why I love my hearty Tuscan Barley Soup, the intense flavours can’t be beat.

On the heels of my stuffed chicken breast recipes, like my Pesto Cheese Stuffed Chicken and popular and easy Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken – here’s another to drool after, and devour when made.

Stuffed chicken is popular, full of flavour and really raises the bar when compared to chicken breasts solo and plain. It’s an easy way to liven up a meal, and satisfy the tastebuds.

How to make Stuffed Tuscan Chicken

When you glance at this dish, you might think it’s difficult. Yet it’s just all the ingredients oozing out of the chicken, this dish offers quite the presentation points as it does the taste.

To make this recipe you coat chicken breasts in a blend of spices and seasonings, then stuff with all the best in ingredients. Sundried tomatoes, spinach, cream cheese and then both mozzarella and parmesan – it’s a combination winner that’s for sure.

It’s cooked on the stovetop too, making it a one-dish meal much like my Honey Dijon Chicken recipe. Not only is the outside seared but the inside is tender and moist thanks to covering the pan and allowing the flavours and heat to bake to perfection.

When done, the scent is amazing, or perhaps that’s the oozing cheeses out of the sides that’s so enticing. Serve with a potato and vegetable side dish {I have fine recipes of both so do a search and find your preference} and you have a complete meal.

Or, you could make my 12 Hour No-Knead Bread, which would go perfectly with this Tuscan dish.
