(Pssst! Hey friends – I’m partnering with Mezzetta this month, so if you’re making this recipe you can grab a coupon and enter their sweepstakes! I’d love if one of my very own readers won their contest! First prize is an awesome Instant Print Digital Camera. Cheers!)
Don’t you just love one-pan meals?
Just the sheer joy of only having one pan to wash overwhelms me. In our house, dishes are the enemy. No matter how many dishes we wash, there always seem to be more. Sometimes I wonder if they are secretly multiplying behind my back.
It probably doesn’t help that I have a compulsive shopping problem when it comes to anything kitchen-related.
This Tuscan Chicken Skillet is so easy to put together but tastes like it took all day. The cannellini beans turn this skillet dish into a one-pan meal by adding extra protein and bulk.
I just love when something delicious is also healthy, don’t you?
Here’s the low-down on how you make it:
- Start by browning your chicken on both sides until it’s nice and caramelized.
- Remove the chicken from your pan, then add your mushrooms in batches so you can brown them all in a single layer. Once browned on both sides, spoon them out of the pan and set them aside.
- Saute some onions, garlic, and sun-dried tomatoes, then add in the canned fire-roasted tomatoes, beans, and fragrant spices.
- Add the chicken back in, cover the pan, and let simmer until the chicken is cooked through.
- Return the mushrooms to the pan and garnish with fresh parsley.
Dinner is served!
Dish it up and pour yourself a glass of wine. You deserve it, really. You’ve been washing a lot of dishes lately.
In my experience, this dish is best eaten while watching really trashy television. Does anyone still eat at the dinner table? I keep telling myself that the husband and I will migrate back to the dining room once we have some kids.
I think it’s important to teach your kids to eat in the dining room. You know, so they can grow up and eat in their own living rooms someday.
This fit so perfectly in the “Everyday Pan” which came with my new dish set. I’m not sure what about it makes it as an “Everyday Pan”, but I’ll admit that I do use this pan ALL the time. I love that it has two handles! Plus, it’s super easy to clean which makes it even better in my book.
Here’s Your Recipe!
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
- 1 lb. chicken breast tenderloins
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tsp. oregano
- ½ tsp. thyme
- ½ yellow onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 12 oz. mushrooms, sliced
- ⅔ c. sundried tomatoes, chopped
- 1 (15 oz) can Cannelini Beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 (15 oz) cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Parsley for garnish
- Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large sauté pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, then add the chicken and brown for 3 minutes on each side.
- Remove chicken and set aside on a plate. Add the remaining tablespoon olive oil to the pan. Add the sliced mushrooms in a single layer and brown, working in batches, a few minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the garlic, and sundried tomatoes. Sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in the diced tomatoes, spices, beans, and sugar.
- Transfer the chicken back to the pan and spoon some of the sauce and vegetables over top of the chicken. Cook, covered, on the stove top until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is bubbling, about ten minutes. Return the mushrooms to the pan. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Serve hot, garnished with parsley.
