We like to call this one…Crazy Busy Mama 𝘎𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘮𝘦𝘵 😘💋👩🏻‍🍳 I mean don't all of us Crazy Busy Mama's love a little gourmet without all the fuss?

Easy One Pan Tuscan Chicken served over Angel hair pasta was a massive hit and it's pretty dang easy to put together. I would definitely save this one for a weekend or a night where you aren't running in all sorts of directions as it does take closer to an hour from start to finish, but the actual “work” of putting this dish together only takes about 10 mins of prep including the pasta. It not only looks gourmet but thats that way too. It's one once you try you will be putting it on rotation for your family.

This dish was one of my late husbands favorites. He would get so excited to see this Tuscan Chicken Pasts on the menu. Gosh I miss him so much. I am going to have to make this one again soon in honor of him.

Doesn't this dish look incredible?
