Tuscan Chicken Skillet - the perfect one-pan meal!

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.

Here’s the low-down on how you make this Tuscan skillet chicken:

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.

Sauté 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!

This Tuscan Chicken Skillet recipe 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!

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 pound chicken breast tenderloins
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 12 ounces brown mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2/3 c. sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can Cannelini Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Parsley for garnish


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the garlic, and sundried tomatoes. Sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in the oregano, thyme, beans, diced tomatoes, and sugar.
  4. 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.

  1. I found it easy to make and quite good. but my wife whose tastes run to a blend of Cantonese and Filipino finished with a comment “it’s nice” Code for don’t make it again. For me. if I were to make again, I’d add just a little spice to liven it up a bit. That would reflect having down all of my real cooking in Texas and Arizona.

  2. this dish looks amazing! I can’t wait to try it. Question: I may have missed this in another comment (there are soooo many!!). What type of sun-dried tomatoes do you use? I have seen them several ways, dried in a bag, stored in olive oil, etc. thanks!

  3. Fabulous recipe! I’m trying to go more Mediterranean diet in order to get off some meds. This meal fit the bill, was easy and delicious to boot! I had a little chuckle when you mentioned the dining table. My husband and I are recent empty-nesters and have migrated back to eating in front of the TV! The circle of life! 🙂

  4. The dish looked very inviting and it did not disappoint. I cooked this for my wife and daughter and we all agreed that we will enjoy this again in the future. We tried this with buttered garlic French bread and it was a good combination. Clean up was a breeze. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  5. This was so unbelievably good! My picky parents loved this! I used leeks instead of the garlic and onions to make it fodmap friendly and it was such a huge success. Thanks for the recipe! I will be making this over and over again.

  6. Made this tonight for my son & husband. Everyone loved it! I served it over brown rice with steamed green beans on the side. My husband commented that it would make a good vegetarian meal without the chicken. (He really liked the sauce on the rice.) Will definitely be making this again soon. Thank-you!
