Marry Me Chicken / Tuscan Chicken

This easy chicken recipe is perfect for a mid week meal. It comes together in minutes and tastes amazing. Marry me chicken is also known as Tuscan chicken. The reason why they call it ‘marry me chicken’, is because apparently it tastes so good that you will want to marry it! And once I tried it, I can totally agree (sorry hubby!) Serve this with pasta and you will be so happy you gave this recipe a go!
