Pan fry chicken
In a large skillet, add the olive oil and cook the chicken over medium heat, turning once (about 10-12 minutes per side). May need to cover the skillet if you have thick chicken breast. Heat until internal temperature of chicken is 165 degrees. Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside.
Make the cream sauce
Add onions to the skillet and sauté until translucent, 3-5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in the chicken broth, cream, Parmesan cheese and basil. Continue to stir until cheese has melted. Stir in arrowroot powder if using to thicken up the mixture. Reduce heat to low and simmer.

Add spinach and sun-dried tomatoes. Continue to simmer until spinach has wilted. Add the chicken to the mixture and serve.

I have a question, if the recipe calls for 2 chicken breast and the recipe nutrients says 4 servings for the 6 net carbs, does that mean a serving for that carb amount is a half a breast? Low Carb Tuscan Chicken Recipe
Yes, you can add more chicken if you want more protein.
Just made this the other night and nit even two bites in, both my husband and teenage son told me to never lose this recipe and have already asked me to make it again next week.
Thank you so much for not only a fantastic recipe, but one that comes together very quickly. I cooked the chicken in my InstantPot while starting on remaining ingredients.
I am new to keto and new to cooking with a recipe, I love this so much! It’s super easy to make. I made it 2 days in a row! Love it!!!
Oh my, this is so good. Even my non-keto family and kids loved it.
This was so good! My entire family, including our picky 15 year old, loved it.
What would change if I wanted to double this?
I would keep the arrowroot powder amount the same (1 teaspoon) but you should be able to just double all the other ingredients.
So I’m not a fan of the OG Tuscan Chicken…this is so much better!!! I doubled everything but left out the arrowroot bc it didn’t really need any thickening once I added the cheese. So easy and I put this over some cauliflower rice and made a side of lemon broccoli, def a keeper!
I’m the type that usually changes something about a recipe but this is perfect the way it is!
My husband, the fussy former restauranteur, loved this recipe! It was a great intro to Keto and keeping him motivated. We will do this again.
Wow this recipe is amazing, my son tasted and started to eat it and said can you make it for dinner too, I didn’t have fresh onions and put onion flakes and still come out amazing
Cooked this tonight for my son and served over some soy based spaghetti from Aldi. Was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend. Thank you for sharing the recipe
