My son made this dish on his own with my just giving him a few guidelines. He learned a lot from this dish. Like to have your spices ready to go before you turn the pan on so the olive oil doesn’t burn. Yes, he started over again. But, in the end he did a wonderful job. He said to me after dinner, “I think I will be fine at college with the cooking and food stuff. It is just the paying for it that may be difficult.” Even I understand that one!
We have always called this dish Tuscan Chicken but I heard someone refer to it as Marry Me Chicken. As the story goes someone once upon a time made this dish for her date and it was the THE DISH that made him fall in love with her so they named it “Marry Me Chicken.” I like Tuscan Chicken better even though I don’t think there is anything Tuscan about it.
This amazing dish could be served to company! It is fairly easy to make (my 16 year-old made this) and has tons of flavor. Make enough for leftovers as the chicken is even better the second day as the flavors meld together for a nice lunch.
We served this over mashed potatoes (which at first I was questioning) but they were delicious with this. You could also serve it over Angel Hair pasta or rice. I added green beans and a green side salad to complete the meal.
