Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

How to Batch

Cool within 2 hours of cooking, then divide the cooked recipe into individual servings and freeze immediately.

We recommend a reduced-fat cream cheese rather than a fat-free one here. The result is a little richer and stands up better to reheating if you plan on batch cooking this recipe.

Swap this

Use sundried tomatoes (they won’t need cooking but will be much higher in calories) instead of fresh tomatoes, or pork steak instead of chicken.

NEW TIP
Easy to follow recipe, so tasty
Cut the chicken into slices Served with wholewheat rice & seasonal veg.
NEW TIP
Easy and fairly quick to cook- I used rice instead of pasta
NEW TIP
Reduce the sauce plenty! Use Philly lightest to lower guilt!
I am a huge fan of Italian food but it can be quite heavy on syns with creaminess but this is excellent when you get creaminess from lightest Philadelphia. You may need to cook a little longer to reduce the sauce so it’s a bit thicker.

NEW TIP
Creamy sauce
Only use 300ml water if you like a thicker sauce and use mini breast fillets rather than normal chicken breasts!
NEW TIP
Tasted Delicious! Had to cook longer to reduce the sauce
I diced the chicken rather than leaving it as a whole breast and added 1 tsp of Bouillon served with Tagliatelle & Garlic Bread.
NEW TIP
Very easy to make with bags of flavour.
Versatile dish which can be served with pasta, potatoes or just vegetables. I like to add mushrooms as I find they go well with this dish.
NEW TIP
Creamy Tuscan Chicken is amazing !
I used 200ml less of stock and the consistency was perfect.
Wow... gone to Tuscan heaven!
This creamy dish is an excellent dinner party pleaser as well as a quick mid week meal. If you're short on time, dice the chicken and half the amount of stock.
This dish is lovely made with prawns too
This dish is lovely topped with lots of cracked black pepper!
Family favourite
This is one of our absolute favourites, I added slightly less stock and it thickens beautifully

If I wanted to use pork instead of chicken, what pork would be best? thanks!

    Hey Eve, the creamy sauce from the Creamy Tuscan Chicken would work well with pork loin steaks or pork chops, hope that helps!

Could this be adapted to be prepared in a slow cooker?

Reply

    HollyMonday 10th January 2022

    Hey Nicola, We haven’t given this recipe a slow cooker method because of the way the cream cheese could separate or curdle. Members of our facebook community have tried it but it is not something we have tested, if you would like more information on how to convert a recipe to the slow cooker have a look at THIS article, hope that helps!

    Hi Irene, you can substitute cream cheese for quark, crème fraîche, mascarpone or in some recipes Greek yoghurt. Hope that helps!

Can I make the Creamy Tuscan Chicken in the morning – cover and store in the cold oven, then heat up for a meal at 6 in the evening?

    Hey Sandra, Yes you can reheat this recipe from chilled, pop in the microwave or oven until piping hot. Hope that helps!
