Creamy Keto Tuscan-ish Chicken

This one-pot meal is so creamy and satisfying I can't even handle it!

I had a major craving for Tuscan Chicken one night but you know me, I wanted to make a "Healthified" version. I didn't want to use cream or cheese (all the good stuff, I know!) but my husband was on a Keto-diet this past January, and wanted to make it work anyway! I subbed in coconut milk for the cream and just omitted the cheese! I promise you won't miss it.

You can totally use sundried tomatoes in this instead of crushed tomatoes..I just used what I had on hand, and I personally don't love sundried tomatoes.

This is my take on Tuscan chicken, and it is dairy-free, grain-free, and keto-friendly!

By:

Ingredients
  • 1 pound of chicken thighs { I used @moinkbox - breasts would works too}
  • 1, 13.5oz can coconut milk
  • 1, 8.5oz can of artichoke hearts
  • 4oz sliced mushroom { I used up just a few I had on hand, feel free to add more}
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup onions diced { any color}
  • 1/4 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/4 tsp. Paprika
  • Pink salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbl. coconut oil and/or ghee for cooking
  • 2 Tbl. Broth
  • 2 Tbl. Coconut flour for thickening
Directions
  • Step 1 Get a cast iron skillet hot and add Tbl. of cooking oil or ghee. Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towel, pink salt and pepper them.
  • Step 2 Cook chicken thighs 4 mins on each side. Remove from skillet and set a side.
  • Step 3 Add more cooking oil or ghee to the same skillet and cook the onions down until translucent.
  • Step 4 Add the sliced mushroom with 2 Tbl. of broth { this helps them cook down} then add the minced garlic.
  • Step 5 Add the drained artichoke hearts, can of coconut milk, crushed tomatoes, and paprika. Stir together and cover with a lid.
  • Step 6 When the mixture starts to heat-up, place the chicken thighs back in the skillet and cover them in the mixture. Cover and simmer 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked all the way through.
  • Step 7 At the end, add the spinach to the skillet to wilt. This is also where you can add coconut flour to thicken the mixture if needed.
  • Step 8 Serve as is or with a side of quinoa if you are not on a keto diet. ENJOY!!
