Tuscan Chicken Recipe

Updated on June 30, 2015

Tuscan Chicken.

Tuscan chicken is a popular chicken dish in the Korean region. It is dry so no gravy in this chicken. It is usually eaten in dinner. This recipe of chicken has lots of tomatoes and mushrooms in it along with some other vegetables so it is healthy food though it may not be as healthy as my last recipe Chicken, vegetable and ginger salad. Since this recipe uses saffron as ingredient so it has very rich colour and aroma. A must try.

1. Chicken: 4 portions skinned.

2. All purpose flour: 2 Tbsp.
