Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken

A few months ago I discovered this recipe when I was looking for a keto dinner idea. This meal feels indulgent and it has amazing flavor, but it allows you to stay on track too. I don’t eat keto typically, but my husband follows a modified version. I serve the chicken and creamy sauce overtop…
