One Pot Healthy Tuscan Chicken

Who doesn’t like a one pot recipe? Less hassle of clean up is always a good idea. I don’t know anyone who enjoys cleanup in the kitchen as much as they enjoy cooking food. For this one pot delicious meal I’ve brought out my cast iron pan. Did I tell you I love my cast iron pan? Every time you cook in a cast iron pan, you use less oil, avoid harmful chemicals that can leech out from cookware like non stick pans or aluminum cookware and you get a good dose of iron in your food and into your body. So apart from easy cleanup, hassle free cooking, this is a good way to boost your daily iron intake too @sarchakra
