Chris Mann Home For Christmas

When I think of Chris Mann and food , I am immediately drawn to make classic, timeless and simple dishes. I thought about Chris going to Europe to perform in an Italian Opera after his graduation from Vanderbilt University and decided to make a simple, classic Italian dish. Tuscan Chicken is easy, delicious and it makes a great leftover Italian Chicken Sandwich when you’re rushing to hit last minute holiday shopping. I paired it with some light Italian beans to really give this dish a simple Tuscan feel you can enjoy while listening to Home for Christmas on a cold winter day. Enjoy !
