2. In a bowl, beat together the spinach, cream cheese, and heavy cream. Add half the garlic, salt, onion powder, chili powder, black pepper, and Italian seasoning and beat to combine. Add parmesan cheese and 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese and continue beating to combine.

3. Lay the chicken breasts flat in the bottom of a large baking dish. Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper and the remaining half of the garlic. Spread the spinach and cream cheese mixture on top of the chicken, top with sun-dried tomatoes then drizzle a tablespoon of oil reserved from the sun-dried tomatoes. Finish by topping the chicken casserole with mozzarella cheese.

4. Bake the Tuscan chicken casserole for 35 minutes: Cook for 20 minutes loosely covered with foil then uncover and bake 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through (165˚F – 71ºC internal temperature).

Tuscan chicken casserole tips

  • Use your chicken leftovers: You can use your leftover chicken to make this Tuscan chicken casserole. Just bake in the oven for 15 or 20 minutes, depending on the amount of chicken used.
  • Add a pinch of mustard powder, or cayenne for an extra kick.
  • If you want a crisp, crunchy topping, sprinkle your chicken casserole with breadcrumbs. Panko is wonderfully flaky and delicate while crushed pork rind might be a good option for those following a low carb or keto diet.

    This is delicious exactly as written. I added a pinch of cayenne to the spinach mix and also some red pepper flakes to season the chicken. Thank you for the recipe! Will definitely be making this again!

    I haven't made this yet, but I REALLY appreciate that there wasn't a 7-page short story about your husband and kids. So THANK YOU.

    This recipe is amazing!!! Made as written except used 1/2 the sun-dried tomatoes. Restaurant quality with very little work. Some have said chicken was chewy. Mine wasn’t. I always use fresh chicken breasts (Miller’s all natural) a local farm. We live in northeast IN.

    Made this for dinner tonight and my husband loved it. Instead of using frozen spinach, I bought a bag of fresh spinach, sauteed it in butter and after cooling a bit, added it to the cream cheese mixture. I served the chicken over coucous. It was delicious!

  • Nancy

    So delicious and so easy with spinach, cheeses and sundried tomatoes and chicken my family loved it! Thank you for sharing this recipe

    DELICIOUS! I used fresh spinach and half and half instead of heavy cream ………..

    I want to make a couple of these casseroles and freeze them. Can I freeze them before I cook them.

    Best chicken dish ever! The only thing I changed was broccoli instead of spinach (yuk) will make often Thanks!!!

    I normally don't like to write a review when I've altered the recipe, however I thought this might be helpful to others who are interested in 1) PREPARING IN ADVANCE and 2) prefer CHICKEN TENDERS. I prepared this for company and made it the night before. It came out heavenly! I used chicken tenders which came out great. I followed the advice of others and doubled the sauce recipe except for the sundried tomatoes. We devoured it. I will definitely make this again.

  • Sandra

    2023-09-21 12:21:30

    This was delicious ! Followed directions but added a little evoo on the bottom of the pan (as recommended by another reviewer) . It turned out perfect . Family loved it .

  • Mary

    2023-07-05 20:30:59

    The flavors! ❤️ I put some of the cream sauce on the bottom of the dish so the chicken wouldn’t dry out. Dropped the temp to 375. I was so afraid the chicken would dry out but we did well!Used fresh spinach so there was a bit more water. My sun dried tomatoes were already julienned so it all went well! I did make some spinach linguini to sop up the juices. Excellent recipe!

  • Barbara

    2023-06-26 12:49:01

    Excellent recipe and very flavorful. I used fresh spinach [about 5-6 oz] chopped up, which got further shredded by using a hand mixer to mix cheese/spice mixture. I also cut the dried tomatoes in half, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The chicken was not too dry for my taste, but maybe brushing a little olive oil on bottom of pan would keep it more moist for those that did. A keeper for my family!

  • Karen

    2023-04-25 22:55:48

    Could I shred my chicken and and make this a hotdish in a crockpot?

  • Grinnie

    2023-04-22 19:17:30

    I followed the recipe exactly as written. The topping was delicious but the chicken was too dry. I might try the recipe again using chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts.

  • Glen

    2023-03-28 11:39:25

    My wife used roasted and peeled red peppers in place of the sun dried tomatoes (Not Fans) and the recipe was delicious. (Next time we will cut the cooking time by 10 minutes as ours came out very over cooked with the chicken being dry. And we used whole breasts not sliced because they were so big they would not have fit in the dish if sliced. Overall very delicious, it just needs some tweaking to the baking time.

  • Lu

    2023-02-14 16:03:18

    Delicious! I had diced chicken breast pieces. I stir fried them for a couple minutes in a little butter. I used extra light cream cheese, a little milk (no cream), fresh spinach ( just shredded, not pre cooked. I omitted italian spices. Only had light mature cheddar cheese. Half the sun dried tomatoes mixed with a couple of fresh tomatoes. Moist succulent chicken, delicious tangy creamy sauce. Served with baby potatoes. Will definitely make again. I love recipes that still work even with substituted ingredients.

  • Kathleen

    2023-02-11 07:33:19

    Amazing!! The whole family loved it! I made it just like the recipe except my chicken breasts were large so I cooked at 375 for 50 minutes. Definitely a do over

    Great recipe, and reheats well in the microwave. Because I had a number of people showing up for dinner, I used two pounds of chicken breast (two very large chicken breasts), which I sliced horizontally into four slices. I didn't have enough ingredients to double the cheese mixture, so I began with 1 cup of marinara sauce in each of two 8 X 8 inch glass baking dishes. Then the chicken slices -- one pound each. I used 3 ounces of fresh spinach in each dish, and one-half of the cheese mixture in each dish. Used one jar of sun-dried tomatoes split between the two dishes. I doubled the mozzarella but split it between the two dishes. Baked per the recipe. It was great. I hope to make the recipe true-to-form soon, but the way I made it was still scrumptious.

    Just made this dish tonight. I thought this was exceptional! I did make one adjustment, I had some garlic Boursin cheese that needed to be used so I added that as well. I will be making this over and over. Thanks for the recipe.

  • Jan

    The recipe sounds so wonderful I'm making it tomorrow for my daughter's 45th birthday party. I will be tripling the recipe. My question is: can I make the topping mixture ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight? Also - can you heat the cheese spinach mixture before adding it to the chicken? I hope you can answer before tomorrow, though I know it's last minute. Thanks so much!!! Praying everyone likes it!!!

  • Andrea G.

    2023-01-01 11:43:46

    Easy & delicious! I did use fresh spinach (quick sautee before adding) and doubled "the sauce" as some reviews noted. 1.5x would probably have been enough, but I didn't really have time (or desire) to do the math for that so I just doubled and threw the extra spoonful or two away. It definitely would have been perfect for one more chicken breast, but I had already committed to the pan and didn't have room. Also, the "sauce" isn't really sauce as much as it is the grease & oil that melts out of all the cheese and cream. Most of the "sauce mixture- even when doubled" stays on top of the chicken and doesn't really melt [into a sauce]. Delicious though. And I'm excited for the left overs tonight as many folks comment that it's even better as leftovers.

    Semi picky teen approved! Did use fresh sauteed spinach, as suggested by another reviewer.

    It was good but quite rich. I’ll make it again but will half the amount of sun dried tomatoes. Also…just a tip…whenever a recipe calls for frozen spinach, thawed and the excess water squeezed out…don’t do it. Instead buy fresh spinach and sauté in a little olive oil on the stovetop. You can add as little or as much as spinach to the dish as you like. The flavor of the spinach done this way is much less potent than the taste of the frozen and frankly this method is just way, way easier! Enjoy!!!

    Turned out great ! Nice and easy to make

  • Cindi

    2022-04-06 08:39:41

    Delicious and even better as a left over. I added white wine to the sauce and used fresh spinach. Yummy! I usually do not leave reviews but this one is sooooo worth it.

  • Bob

    Easy to make, but tasted complicated

  • Ed

    Great dinner changed a few things. Used fresh spinach an increased liquid to have more sauce. Was easy and a keeper . Thanks Ed

    We loved this dish! It’s definitely a keeper!!!

    2022-01-30 07:49:44

    Great recipe, I accidentally added Italian dressing seasoning as well as Italian seasoning bc I was in a rush and it still came out amazing. It was bursting with flavor and I will definitely be making this again.

    This is one of the best recipes I’ve ever gotten off of Pinterest- it is soooo delicious - and so easy to make. Everyone I have made it for has loved it! Thank you.

  • Sarah

    Easily becoming a go-to favorite for my family. We also slice the chicken breasts in half for thinner cuts and enjoy using spinach noodles on the side—decreases health value but better than regular noodles!

  • Mary

    2022-01-07 20:57:22

    I decided to make this recipe this evening and it was yummy! I wish there was more sauce and creaminess to the casserole. When I make this again, I will add broth and more of the ingredients. Thank you for the recipe. You did a great job with the instructions and photos!

  • Amy

    Loved the recipe BUT the chicken was tough. Would love to know how to make chicken tendet.

    Your yummy photos drew me in, so wanted to make asap, until I got to the spinach. Not a fan, but when I read it’s mixed with the cream cheese, I decided to make it. I am so glad I did! I couldn’t tell there was spinach and actually, the green color made it look very appetizing. I loved this casserole so much I’m making it again next week. I did change one thing, I cut the huge tomatoes in half. Served with angel hair pasta. Thank you for your recipe and teaching me that I can eat and like spinach.

  • Jane

    2021-11-17 21:05:59

    I made this for dinner this evening, and it was delicious. I increased all ingredients, plus added approximately 1/2 cup of chicken broth, as I also added fresh uncooked tortellini which required a little extra liquid for the pasta to cook properly. The chicken was very moist and the casserole was very flavourful. Will prepare again.

  • Mary

    2021-11-11 17:52:54

    This is a great recipe, Very tasty.

    Delicious, had great flavor . I only used half the amount of the sun dried tomatoes . Turned out great.
