I am in love with this Tuscan Chicken recipe that was ready in under 30 minutes! It uses my favorite piece of meat, boneless skinless chicken thighs. They are so juicy, full of flavor, and cook up so fast!
For this tuscan chicken recipe, I used lots of fresh rosemary. I stripped the leaves from the stems and chopped them finely. I also diced up a large shallot.
This recipe comes together so fast so have all of your ingredients ready to go before you start cooking.
I put a large skillet over medium high heat and I added avocado oil. I then browned the boneless skinless chicken thighs on both sides. I cooked 3 at a time so I didn’t crowd the pan. I added the minced garlic to the pan while the chicken was browning.
After the chicken was all browned on both sides, I removed it from the pan onto a plate and set it aside. I then added the vinegar to the pan and let it reduce. This only took a few seconds because the pan was so hot.
I reduced the heat to medium, added the butter, beef broth, shallot, and rosemary. I let that simmer for a few minutes to soften the shallot and reduce the sauce.
I then added the chicken broth to the pan. I normally use regular chicken broth, but for this recipe I used reduced sodium which I would highly recommend. Otherwise, this sauce can get too salty.
I then added the boneless skinless chicken thighs back to the pan and let them simmer for 5-8 minutes so they could finish cooking.
When the tuscan chicken was finished, I removed them to a platter and spooned the delicious sauce over top.
This boneless skinless chicken thigh recipe has so much flavor and it is so rich! I would serve it with a side salad and call it dinner.
