This easy-to-create comfort food of chicken stew has Italian inspirations including basil, fennel and minced garlic.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch thick wedges
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Fennel Seed
1 can (15 ounces) cannellini or other white beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup red wine
1 teaspoon McCormick® Basil Leaves
1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic, Minced
1 teaspoon McCormick® Rosemary Leaves
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Oregano Leaves
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Black Pepper, Coarse Ground
1 package (6 ounces) baby spinach leaves
Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 10 minutes or until browned. Remove chicken from skillet. Add onion and fennel seed; cook and stir on medium heat 5 minutes or until tender.
Stir in beans, tomatoes, red wine, basil, minced garlic, rosemary, salt, oregano and pepper. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 3 minutes. Return chicken to skillet.
Stir in spinach. Cover. Cook 5 minutes longer or until spinach is wilted.
(Amount per serving)
Excellent, made it twice. Second time I used Ro-tel tomatoes in place of diced tomatoes and I added 1/2 cup Merlot wine.

This is a very flavorful, hearty dish. I agree with the comment that John H. made in his review that the amount of spinach called for in the recipe is a bit too much. I fully realize that it's Tuscan chicken and supposed to be chock full of spinach, but then again, you don't want spinach to be the only thing that you taste either. So, that being said, I cut it back to 4 oz instead of 6 oz. And I have an allergy to wines (alcohol of all types), but rather than use water like it recommends in exchange for the wine, I used Swanson chicken Tuscany broth, but you can use plain chicken broth too.
Made this a while ago and tasted a little flat and "tomato-y", also I would cut back on the amount of the baby spinach leaves (6 oz. was too much for this dish for me). Probably could stand a little more salt and garlic powder to bump up the flavor. Will try again with some "tweeking" and keep you posted.
Second review... Made it for the Mother's Day potluck at church. It got many compliments.
My 14 year old says it is a "make again" recipe, so it has to be excellent!
Wow. This chicken recipe is fantastic!!
