{NEW} Tuscan Chicken White Bean Skillet ????????

A COMFORTING + FLAVORFUL dinner idea!

Simple ingredients such as flavorful fresh garlic and herbs blend together to create a warming weeknight meal that satisfies our need for a bowl of comfort during these cooler months.

Tuscan chicken and white beans is an EXCELLENT choice for meal prep too!
In fact, this skillet meal tastes even better the next day.

So double up this recipe, then pack up the leftovers for your next few lunches. (Look at you and your planning ahead skills ????)

This recipe has received great feedback since I first shared on our social media channels.
I’m confident you’re going to love it too!

➡️Rachel’s Tips:

If you do not have wine on hand, you may substitute wine for additional chicken bone broth.

The wine adds flavor and is used to deglaze your skillet.

All of the alcohol will cook out of your final meal, so no worries there.

Do not use “cooking wine” as most have a flavor much like rubbing alcohol…LOL.

For best flavor and results, use a decent to nicer bottle of dry white wine that one would drink, because this will produce the very best flavor.

makes 4 servings
Ingredients:

  • 4 (6-oz.) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbsps chopped fresh thyme, divided
  • 4 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken bone broth
  • 2 (15-oz.) cans cannellini white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 12 ounces baby spinach or chopped kale leaves
  • 1 (15-oz.) jar diced tomatoes with juices
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste, about 1/4 teaspoon each

Season your chicken with sea salt and pepper to taste; set aside. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place your seasoned chicken breasts into the hot oil and sear each side until nicely browned, about 4 minutes on each side.Add in your onions, half of the fresh thyme, and then the garlic and cook until fragrant, just a few minutes. Pour in the wine and simmer until reduced, about 2-3 minutes.

Next pour in the stock, cover and reduce the heat to LOW. Allow the chicken to simmer in this sauce until cooked through and no longer pink in the inside, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside.Add in the beans and diced tomatoes, then simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Stir in spinach/kale, and cook until just wilted.Sometimes I use a potato masher and mash just a bit of the beans to create a thicker, creamier sauce at this point. This step is completely optional.

Season with sea salt and pepper to your taste, then return the chicken back into the sauce and continue to simmer for a couple of minutes, until just heated through and bubbly.

Garnish with remaining fresh thyme and serve immediately. Place leftovers in glass meal prep containers in your fridge, and use within 3-4 days.
