Creamy Tuscan Chicken and Potatoes


I’m not sure why I’m digging “tuscan” flavors so much, but guys, I’m kind of obsessed. Good thing my family is too! This dish is one we’ll be making over & over again. It’s easy, so so flavorful, and you can add pretty much anything to it. We’ve added some bacon crumbles and mushrooms and WOW was that delicious!! ????

You’ll need 6 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs OR three large chicken breasts. Since potatoes take a while to cook, you want a nice thick cut of meat so it doesn’t get dried out. Timing is everything. ⏰ If you’re super worried about firm potatoes, you can either steam the cubes or boil them for a bit before tossing them in the pan with everything else. I didn’t have an issue, but I made sure I cut them nice and small and tried to spread them out so they’d have room to cook.

Once the chicken is crispy and golden and the veggies are nice and tender, pull it out and sprinkle everything with a few big shavings of parmesan and enjoy!
