Rustic Tuscan Chicken and Bean Skillet

This name of Tuscan chicken has been a bouncing around for the last decade, I feel. I wasn’t quite sure what it meant for the first bit. Essentially it’s just a more rustic chicken dish, usually with cannelini bean, tomatoes, etc.

This rustic Tuscan chicken and bean skillet looks awesome. Tomatoes, chicken, beans, and herbs galore. YUM. 

This is a really great family meal. It does only serve four so plan accordingly. This meal does take about 45 minutes. So if that feels like just way too much for a weekday, consider it for a family Sunday dinner. It really is a beauitful dish!

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb. chicken breast tenderloins
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • ½ tsp. thyme
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • ⅔ c. sundried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (15 oz) can Cannelini Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 (15 oz) cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Parsley for garnish
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large sauté pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, then add the chicken and brown for 3 minutes on each side.
  2. Remove chicken and set aside on a plate. Add the remaining tablespoon olive oil to the pan. Add the sliced mushrooms in a single layer and brown, working in batches, a few minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the garlic, and sundried tomatoes. Sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in the diced tomatoes, spices, beans, and sugar.
  4. Transfer the chicken back to the pan and spoon some of the sauce and vegetables over top of the chicken. Cook, covered, on the stove top until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is bubbling, about ten minutes. Return the mushrooms to the pan. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Serve hot, garnished with parsley.
