I love when we go to Publix and one of the ladies there is cooking a meal and giving samples. If I time it right, my kids can practically eat dinner there. They get a sample plate of dinner (which is sometimes a great portion size for the them), a free cookie from the bakery, and a few bites of sandwich meat and cheese from the deli counter. When we are done shopping and get home, their tummies are full. 🙂
The other day when we were there, the meal being fixed and sampled was this Tuscan chicken. I love anything with sun dried tomatoes and when I realized the recipe was gluten free and wouldn’t require any substitutions or adjustments on my part, I grabbed the recipe card and the necessary ingredients.
It is yummy and so so super easy. I think the entire meal was complete in 15 min. I’m not kidding. It really is that simple. Saute some chunks of chicken, add in chicken broth, sun dried tomatoes, rosemary, and a can of cannellini beans and simmer. Then thicken with a bit of cornstarch and you are done! We served it all over some quick brown rice and it was a hit with everyone.
You should definitely make this for your family soon. You will be so pleased with the little amount of time required, the great taste, and the empty plates that greet you when dinner is over.
