How to make Tuscan Chicken:

First step you want to wash the chicken and pat dry with a paper towel, this way any sliminess is removed from the chicken.

Next you want to season very well each side of the chicken and set aside.

Foremost i like to prep all my ingredients, having them next to me prevents me from scattering around kitchen or burning something while i am looking. I chop my vegetables, have my liquids ready and my spices. After i am done with an ingredient i put it back in its spot. This helps me with less cleaning at the end.

What Skillet is best to use:

Using One deep skillet rather than a frying pan and then pot saves you in time and dishes at the end. I like to use a deep cast iron dutch oven skillet with a lid. I believe that everyone should defiantly invest in a cast iron skillet and a dutch oven. Those two things can last your forever if taken care of properly.

With some butter you will brown chicken on each side. Remove and set aside. At this point it all about adding the remaining ingredients to pot/pan, sauteing and mixing to make the sauce.

After you have made your sauce based on the instructions in the recipe you will add your chicken back into the pan cover and let absorb all that delicious liquid and cook through for about ten minutes. After time is up, add the asparagus in between the chicken breast. One important thing when cooking asparagus is to trim the hard woody bottoms, sometimes its a good inch off.

Now cover it once more and let it simmer for 5-7 min because you need the asparagus to cook.

What to serve it with:

Without a doubt this dish is so good with some mashed potatoes, slice chicken breast place on top of the potatoes than drizzle a good amount of the sauce add the asparagus of-course too ! Top it with some fresh chopped parsley and you’re all done.
