How to make keto low carb creamy tuscan chicken

Start by seasoning your chicken with salt, don’t skip this step as it really adds flavor to the finished recipe.

Then heat a little olive oil in a heavy skillet, I like to use a well seasoned Cast Iron skillet for this as it works really well, and then add the chicken skin side down and leave it alone for at least 10-15 minutes over a low medium heat (you don’t want to burn it) and as the skin crisps up eventually it will unstick from the skillet without tearing the skin and you’ll be able to turn it over.

Turn the chicken and continue to cook it on the other side until the chicken is cooked through, then remove from pan.

Now add the onions, garlic, and cook for a few minutes until soft and translucent.

And finally the cream, some pepper,  bring it to a boil then add the Dijon mustard, cheeses, and reduce to a simmer over a medium heat until the sauce has thickened, then add back your chicken and spoon over the sauce.


  1. Season the chicken on both sides with a little salt and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Add the olive oil to a large non stick, or cast iron skillet, over a medium heat.
  3. Cook chicken thighs skin side down (if using thighs) for about 12-15 minutes to crisp up the skin, keep it on a medium-low heat so it does not burn.
  4. If using chicken breasts brown it works best if you cut large pieces in half lengthways, cook on each side for about 6 minutes per side to brown.
  5. Turn the chicken and continue cooking over a medium-low heat for a further 15 minutes or until fully cooked, then remove from the skillet.
  6. Add the red onion and garlic to the same skillet and cook until translucent over a medium low heat for three to five minutes until translucent.
  7. Add the chopped sun dried tomatoes, spinach, and stir for 30 seconds.
  8. Add the heavy cream, black pepper, and bring it to a boil then add the Dijon mustard, cheeses, and simmer over a medium heat until the sauce has thickened. Taste the sauce and season more if needed.
  9. Add the chicken back the pan and coat in the sauce and reheat gently if needed.
