Tuscan Chicken Skillet Recipe Ingredient Substitution Ideas

Here are a few substitution ideas:

Chicken: This dish is typically made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

But you could also use chicken thighs as well if that’s more your thing.

Italian Seasoning: You can usually find Italian seasoning at the market.

If not, just use a mix of mix of individual spices such as oregano, thyme, basil, and rosemary.

Garlic and Onion: Lots of garlic is always welcome.

And for onions, you can use white, yellow, or even shallots.

Sun Dried Tomatoes: After trying several jars from different brands.

Spinach: Feel free to go heavy on the baby spinach (pack the measuring cup) since it wilts down to teeny bits as it cooks.

Heavy Cream: While dairy-based heavy cream is traditionally used, you have dairy free options as well.

You can use a can of coconut cream (not to be confused with coconut milk) or you can make cashew cream at home.
