Tuscan-style Chicken with Italian Sauteed Beans

I have another recipe for you from one of the MOPS moms that I have the privilege of hanging out with on Tuesdays. This delicious recipe for Tuscan-style Chicken with Italian Sauteed Beans comes from our fearless MOPS leader, Amber.

Tuscan Style Chicken with Italian Sauteed Beans


  • 1 pound of boneless chicken breast
  • ½ teaspoon of kosher salt ( I use sea salt)
  • ¼ teaspoons of pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup of dry white wine
  • 1 bag fresh baby spinach leaves (5-6 oz)
  • 1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1 14.5 oz can of Italian style diced tomatoes (undrained)
  • 4oz fresh mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes.  Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Place oil in pan; swirl to coat.  Arrange chicken and cook 3-4 minutes on one side or until lightly browned.
  3. Turn chicken and add remaining ingredients and cook 4-5 min or until chicken is done. Meanwhile, slice mozzarella cheese thinly. 
  4. Remove pan from heat.  Top chicken with cheese slices; cover and let stand for 2-3 minutes or until cheese melts.  Serve over the beans.
