tips and tricks

Use high-quality raw materials: Tuscan chicken is all about flavor, so it’s important to use good quality olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.

Don’t skimp on sun-dried tomatoes: Sun-dried tomatoes are a key ingredient in Tuscan Chicken – adding a rich, tangy flavor to the dish.

Use wine to add depth of flavor: Replace half of the chicken stock with white wine for extra flavor.

heavy cream substitute

Greek yogurt: You will need 1 cup Greek yogurt to replace the heavy cream in this recipe. Greek yogurt is not as rich and creamy as heavy cream, so you may need to adjust the amount of liquid in the recipe. You can also dilute Greek yogurt with a little milk or water to make it easier to incorporate into the sauce.

coconut milk: You will need 1 cup coconut milk to replace the heavy cream in this recipe. Coconut milk is not as thick as heavy cream, so you may need to adjust the amount of liquid in your recipe. You may also want to reduce the heat and cook the sauce longer to thicken and reduce.

Coconut Milk and Greek Yogurt: Coconut milk has a distinct coconut flavor, probably noticeable. If you don’t want the coconut flavor to be too prominent, you can use a combination of half coconut milk and half Greek yogurt instead. This adds some creaminess and tartness to the sauce without adding too much coconut flavor.

mushroom

We absolutely love mushrooms in this recipe. However, over the years we have learned that many of you do not share that love. With that in mind, mushrooms are recommended – but optional in this recipe.
