Reviews for Tuscan Chicken
"An excellent quick, easy, change of pace for those of us who avoid red meat. Learn from my error though....I marinated the chicken in Worcestershire sauce. It would have been best to omit that step."
"This was easy and different from the usual chicken meal. I served it with cous cous. It was nice to have something different."
"This wasn't bad, but it wasn't great, it was all right. If I make this again, I will pair it with pasta and sauce."
"We did not like this. It was very easy, but not good. We threw it out."
"This was delicious and so easy to make! I paired it with the Zucchini Parmesan side dish. I will definitely be making it again."
"Great flavor, easy & quick. I served Goya's recipe for Easy Arroz-con-Pollo minus the chicken of course. I will repeat this meal frequently. Will try a grilled version as suggested by another reviewer."
"Great flavor, very simple and tasty with a side of pasta."
"This was really good and my 7 year old ate it without complaining!"
"i cooked on the grill used spices as a rub and used a little extra rosemary from the garden then drizzled evo husband loved chicken will cook agein thanks"
"Very tasty, and the short prep time is a plus!"
"Wonderful recipe, will definitely make it again."
"My husband & I loved this simple recipe. I did change it up a little. I put salt & pepper on the chicken breast, then I combined all the herb ingredients with the olive oil. I poured the mixture over the chicken breast and left it to marinate for 20 minutes. Then I scraped the herbs & oil off of the chicken and proceded with the regular instructions. It turned out delicious! Oh, and I used fresh Rosemary, instead of dried. Wonderful!"
"I made this for my husband and 2 year old son and it was a hit. I was a little skeptical at first that all the spices might be too much, but they all worked well. I added one extra clove of garlic, and I used full size boneless skinless chicken breasts. It still worked out well--I just had a longer cooking time. I didn't think my 2 year old would like this because of all the herbs, but he gobbled it up. :) I will be making this again for sure!"
"All of the spices made for wonderful flavor!!"
"Easy and fantastic flavor."
"This was wonderful! Tastes just like something you'd get at a restaurant!"
"this has become a weekly dinner. So quick so good. have been sharing this recipe with all our friends."
"Wow...what a delicious recipe with very intense yummy flavor. I used all fresh herbs and garlic and my husband said it was a gourmet dish. I found the herbs burnt a bit while the chicken was cooking so next time I will remove them at least until the chicken cooks through, then put them all back in the pan so the flavor will go through the chicken. Thanks for submitting this recipe. I will make it over and ove again :)"
"Quick, easy, and the chicken is juicy and tender."
"This was fantastic. I used less salt and pepper, but followed the remaining recipe exactly."
"I have made this several times. The sliced garlic really makes it tasty!"
"Hubby enjoyed very much. Easy, breezy! Nice recipe."
"Very tasty... I actually added a bit of butter near the end of cooking as they were looking a bit dry..."
"This was fantastic! My kids all had seconds. I didn't have any fresh garlic, so I mixed in a couple tsp. of minced from a jar. Turned out great."
"ade this for my husband we both thought it was excellent and very easy to make. Can't wait to make it for my sister in law."
"It was so tasty - made the 4 breasts and used 2 as leftovers on salad (cold) very good!"
"Fabulously easy and so good. I made the recipe for 4 and used the leftover 2 breasts for a salad - really tasty."
"Love this--my favorite part is the sliced garlic. I actually add more because I end up sampling the garlic while it's cooking!"
"Delicious and very easy for a weeknight - will definitely make again!"
"Made this last night it was quick, easy and very tastey. My husband loved it."
"Unbelievably tasty! I made it with boneless/skinless chicken thighs and it could not have been better!"
"This was great. I used chicken tenders as that was what I had on hand and used a shallot instead of the garlic. Served it with red potatoes, asparagus, and a simple salad of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Definitely an easy 30 minute meal."
"Easy,quick and delicious."
