This is a copycat of Olive Garden's Tuscan Garlic Chicken. If fettuccine pasta is not available, use a noodle that is similar or something spirally. The sauce is a lighter alfredo style sauce and spaghetti is not a good match for this type of sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in the mixture, shaking off any excess.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 3 Tbsp olive oil. Cook chicken breasts 2 at a time over medium-high heat until golden brown and crisp, about 2-3 minutes. Add more oil for each batch as necessary.
  4. Remove chicken breasts from skillet and place on a baking sheet, Cover with aluminum foil and transfer to preheated oven. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
  5. In a medium sauce pan, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil. Add garlic, red pepper flakes and red bell pepper and cook for approximately 1 minute. Stir in 1 Tbsp flour, wine, whipping cream and evaporated milk. While stirring continuously, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and add spinach and basil. Sauce is done when spinach and basil are wilted. Complete by slowly stirring in parmesan cheese.
  6. Coat cooked, drained pasta with 3/4 of the sauce. Serve pasta topped with chicken and remaining sauce. Garnish with extra Parmesan cheese.
