Chicken Toscana

Candace Karu


On a trip to Tuscany, we stopped at a small, hilltop village for lunch. Dining outside in the warm, golden fall air, we asked our server to bring us whatever the kitchen recommend. "I'll bring you my family's meal," our charming host said.

He produced a dish so simple, yet so delicious, I wrote down the ingredients to try when I got home.

Fast forward to a snowy night when I needed a great meal in a hurry with ingredients I had on hand. I remembered that afternoon in Italy and decided to try to replicate that perfect dish.

This easy, elegant dish comes close. I hope you enjoy it!
