How to Make Skillet Tuscan Chicken

How to store Tuscan Chicken
If you have leftovers that you won’t be eating right away, I recommend saving some for later. You can place your Tuscan chicken inside of a Ziploc bag or Tupperware style container. Then keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to reheat and eat.
How to reheat Tuscan Chicken
You can reheat your Tuscan chicken on the stove over medium heat until warmed through. You can also mix it together with some pasta and top with additional cheese and bake until cooked. Either way, it will taste delicious. If it seems dry, add in a little butter or splash of heavy cream to get it to liven back up.
Can I freeze Tuscan Chicken?
Yes you can. If you plan on freezing it, then I recommend putting it in a covered aluminum pan. This makes it much easier in both terms of storage and reheating. Simply take the pan out and keep in the fridge overnight before baking. You can also bake from frozen and add additional cooking time.
What to serve with Tuscan Chicken
Most of the time Tuscan chicken is served as is or alongside a pile of cooked noodles. You can choose to serve it with mashed potatoes or cooked rice if you wanted. Even a creamy risotto would be a great option! Whatever you choose, I’m sure it will be good!
