    I posted this link on Facebook but I had to share with my C@ friends who don't go there. I am always checking out the recipes on the Olive Garden website and this one peaked my interest a few days ago. I finally had the opportunity to make it tonight and it far exceeded my expectations. We really LOVED it and even now, an hour after dinner the house smells soooo good! :doubleup: Olive Garden Italian Restaurant - Recipes - Recipe Search

    Tuscan Garlic Chicken
    Prep Time:
    15 minutes
    Cook Time:
    30 minutes
    Serving Size:
    4 8 12
    4 each (4 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 1/2 cups flour, plus 1 tablespoon
    1 Tbsp salt
    2 tsp black pepper
    2 tsp Italian seasoning
    1 lb fettuccine pasta, cooked according to package directions
    5 Tbsp olive oil
    1 Tbsp garlic, chopped
    1 red pepper, julienne cut
    1/2 cup white wine
    1/2 lb whole leaf spinach, stemmed
    2 cups heavy cream
    1 cups Parmesan cheese, grated

    Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.
    1. MIX 1½ cups flour, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in the mixture, shaking off any excess.
    2. HEAT 3 Tbsp oil in a large skillet. Cook chicken breasts 2 at a time over medium-high heat until golden brown and crisp (2-3 min). Add more oil for each batch as necessary.
    3. PLACE cooked chicken breasts on a baking sheet and transfer to preheated oven. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
    4. HEAT 2 Tbsp oil in a sauce pan. Add garlic and red pepper and cook for approximately 1 minute. Stir in 1 Tbsp flour, wine, spinach and cream and bring to a boil. Sauce is done when spinach becomes wilted. Complete by stirring in parmesan cheese.
    5. COAT cooked, drained pasta with sauce, then top with chicken and remaining sauce. Garnish with extra Parmesan cheese.

    Next time I make this I may skip the red peppers (thought I did LOVE the peppers) and add sliced baby portabella mushrooms and toss in some toasted pine nuts when it is all done. One of our local Italian restaurants that went out of business did a dish like this and it was wonderful.
