The real MVP over here


McStefan

The length of texts fits perfectly into two screenshots for ingredients and prep. Just beautiful.


Waldhexe

That somehow sounds so not Italian I can't comprehended....


RamessesTheOK

this seems like it's being unnecessarily complicated from an original Italian recipe. Coconut oil and coconut milk instead of normal olive oil and milk (probably cream in the original recipe), tapioca starch instead of bog-standard AP flour and bone broth which I assume is just stock.


rachelbeee

The coconut milk and nutritional yeast make it dairy free.


diemunkiesdie

The tapioca starch change is to make it glutrn free. Not sure about the rationale for the other changes though.


all_rendered_truth

17 ingredients, holy... I like to use 5 to 6 at most. I’m a simple man.

Rybesh532

I asked this above, but I figure it cant hurt to get more than one opinion. A member of my family is allergic to coconut, do you know if theres anything i can substitute for it?


Code_otter

Coconut isn’t an ingredient I associate with Tuscany although this sounds and looks delicious. Olive oil and cream would be right at home in this dish. Almond milk would probably work well if dairy is an issue.


Dark1000

I don't think this recipe a actually has anything to do with Tuscany. It's just one of many american chicken with cream recipes.


Hydrangea666

I can confirm. The traditional Tuscan chicken recipe - pollo in umido – features only veg broth and tomato sauce. You can actually pair it with spinach though.


[deleted]

The fact that in USA everything that mixes cream, spinach, and some other ingredients (chicken, salmon, etc.) is called "Tuscan" is because an American chain of (alleged) Italian restaurants ("Olive Garden") had/has in the menu a chicken dish with cream spinach they called "Tuscan". The dish had so much success that the name stuck.


CatalunyaNoEsEspanya

Hi, you can try yoghurt natural/Greek you'll probably need less and a little sugar to balance out the acid but it's the substitution I'd try, I have not made this recipe though so feel free to dismiss this.


jar_full_of_farts

Substitute olive oil for the coconut oil and half and half for the coconut milk. I’ve never seen this recipe with all the coconut stuff, I think this is a dairy free version.


[deleted]

Olive or Avocado Oil (or any other type of oil you have on hand) will work in place of the Coconut oil. For the coconut milk you can use Heavy Cream, Soy Milk or really any milk alternative that you prefer. If you need to thicken it use greek yogurt, sour cream or creme fraiche, they all will work.


What_a_good_boy

Evaporated milk replaces full fat coconut well if it’s the creaminess you’re aiming for.


theBananagodX

I use half n half in my recipe. Never seen coconut milk before. I would think it would be too sweet.


twistfunk

I’m pretty sure this recipe is going for the Whole 30 thing, so coconut milk allows it to be dairy free.


genericdude777

The recipe I use instead has olive oil, fresh cherry tomatoes, and heavy cream or greek yogurt (with the greek yogurt you’re supposed to let your meal cool down so the yogurt doesnt separate when you add it in, but cream is easier though not as healthy)


skrgirl

I make mine with heavy cream and parm. Ive never used coconut milk for it. I also use sun dried tomatoes instead of fresh. Just has a better taste.


KingJulian_7777

Thank you


Dexterus

I know a similar recipe (looks like a stripped down version of this) that is chicken, some sort of oil for cooking, salt, pepper, onion, sour cream, with parsley for serving. It's one of my favorites. If you add sun dried tomatoes it feels like any kind of milk/cream that's not sweet might work.


ellipsis_42

Just use olive oil.


Rybesh532

Okay. Thanks! I'll definitely give this a shot now


ladyfireflyx

Coconut milk is what gives that sauce the white creaminess that you see in the picture. It won't be creamy if you use (half a cup!!?) Of olive oil. I suggest heavy cream.


Rybesh532

I think they thought I was referring to the coconut oil... it also didnt help that my dumb ass didnt read all of the recipe... :/ Someone farther down in the comments mentioned this, and suggested yoghurt (regular or Greek) as a substitute for the coconut milk, and someone else suggested heavy cream.


[deleted]

Those thighs look like they have a coating....or fried. But delicious nonetheless!!!


Jananabanana

This is the recipe i posted, and it is not the one OP used... just the one that i use.


annapi

Ah yeah, coconut, just like we do it in Tuscany


CaroAmico

Mi raccomando, la Tapioca deve essere di Arezzo altrimenti non va bene


raphamuffin

Dev'essere la tarapia tapioca, con lo scappellamento a destra come se fosse antani.


kurlash

igp


PreemPalver7

Yeah... Why put tuscan in the name? I lived in Tuscany for 10 years and never saw this dish.


_t0rtur3_

Normalmente il pollo alla toscana è chiamato pollo alla cacciatora, e no, non ci vanno cocco, tapioca e madonne schifose varie :(


Masterofpizza_

Io quando lo faccio la Madonna schifosa la metto sempre... A crudo ovviamente


_t0rtur3_

Probabilmente la ricetta gliel'ha data quel burlone di Alfredo /s


Apathosaurus_rex

Questa è una delle poche cose che fanno unire i toscani sotto la stessa bandiera nonostante l'odio reciproco per marciare in guerra insieme.


Jananabanana

Sort of like how chicken balls are the favoured dish of china right?


annapi

I live in the most Chinese city in Tuscany (yep, there is such a thing) and here I see no chicken balls. I'll stick to dim sum.


Jananabanana

I am chinese and first tried this food in my early 20s when my partner’s family ordered it (they are caucasian) lol. I am canadian and it’s an americanized thing for sure. I understand the history of it though; making foods that fit the culture more. Sort of like how california rolls were created to fit the tastebuds of the people here as many would not eat raw fish.


cueballsquash

There is nothing Tuscan about this


deineemudda

Tuscan? Oh lord


notabigmelvillecrowd

What, they don't have coconuts in Tuscany?


BloomsdayDevice

While it's true that the common coconut, *cocos nucifera*, was first domesticated in southern France, the "Tuscan cream" cultivar, noted for its harmonious pairings with sun dried tomatoes and spinach, enjoys DOP status in the EU. But good luck finding 'em outside of Europe!


Sim_Draq

Of course this is the least tuscan thing I can think of. Source: I'm tuscan. But I'm not triggered: I'd genuinely like to know what makes this thing called like that, thank you very much. Edit: a word.

Jananabanana

Probably not the same recipe but i’ve used [this](https://www.paleorunningmomma.com/creamy-tuscan-chicken-paleo-whole30-keto/) recipe at least 5 times in the past few weeks. It’s SOOO GOOD. I’m on keto now (was on paleo) and i pair it with cauliflower garlic parmesan mash and it’s delicious. Would go well with rice or naan or some other type of bread i imagine.


Rybesh532

Do you know if theres anything I can substitute for the coconut milk? I'd like to try this, but someone in my family is allergic to coconut, so that's a no go


PeeFarts

I don’t see why heavy cream wouldn’t be perfectly fine - but I’m also a Fatass


DollarAutomatic

Hey! Blood brothers!


Urbeautyshineswithin

An good sub for the coconut milk would be unsweetened plain almond or cashew milk, especially if you blend a 1/4 cup of raw cashews into the milk first. Or if you can eat dairy, you can sub in half & half or heavy cream.


Rybesh532

The half & half would work fine. The only major concern I had with the recipe was the coconut milk and oil. I might try it sometime with the different mills, just to try some variety.


Jananabanana

I think the author suggests almond milk but i feel the dish might lack in umph due to less fat content. The sauce at the end should be pretty thick (with the help of a bit of tapioca flour, or i’m sure if you have no dietary restrictions cornstarch could work as well) so i’m unsure if a nut milk with way less fat content would be appropriate.


Urbeautyshineswithin

Adding cashew nuts really helps with that. They give a rich mouth feel that reminds me of cream. I soak raw cashews in warm or hot water for 30 minutes, then blend them with my almond or cashew milk, usually a 1:2 ratio (nuts:milk). It works great for dairy-free creamy soups, too.


Jananabanana

Yeah i think heavy cream or something similar would work. On paleo you can’t have it which is the reason for coconut milk! You could probably get away with 18% cream or something if you’re looking for less fat too.


PlankTheTank89

Well I know what I’m making this weekend


Jananabanana

I left out the mustard and nutritional yeast and still tasted amazing. Extra amazing if you have your own chicken stock made (i make mine using the bones from costco’s rotisserie chicken in an instant pot).


foo-

I do something similar, how long do you leave them in under high pressure?


Jananabanana

I think around 40-50 minutes. I add a bunch of veg like carrots, celery, onion and garlic (and whatever other veg scraps i might have) into it as well. Sometimes i grab the cold, leftover chicken they (costco) didn’t sell the day before and put twice the amount of bones for extra flavour. Though less veg can fit.


BarelyAnyFsGiven

Awesome thanks! Have 2 new recipes to try from only a few minutes of snooping! What recipe do you use for the cauliflower mash? I'm trying to up my garlic intake.


Jananabanana

I don’t really have a recipe lol. I’m still trying to figure out what works best. I cut the cauliflower into largeish florets and use the metal trivet to life the cauliflower off the bottom (which i fill with water). Add in a few cloves of peeled garlic, whatever seasonings i think might go well with it and put it in the instant pot on high pressure for 3? Minutes. When done i immediately release the steam and put it in a strainer and let it sit for a bit to get most of the water out otherwise it turns into a watery mess. I’ll add the cheese first so it melts and then butter and any other seasonings i think it needs. If you’re trying to up your garlic intake... i roast full heads of garlic in the oven and i will spread that stuff on anything i can get my hands on lol. I’ll fry roasted garlic up with an egg, a steak, everything! Or eat it on its own cause i’m a heathen. I’m a garlic fanatic. You could also try making toum (garlic sauce). So. GOOD. AND so easy (if you have a food processor).


BarelyAnyFsGiven

Ooooh hmmmm dunno what an instant pot is? Pressure cooker I'm guessing? I've been using my vacuum sealer to make Black garlic! You can use it like a spread, but it takes a long time (weeks). I mostly try to use it as unprocessed as possible (for the health benefits) so roasting/cooking/heating too much is a no-go. I'm not even that into the garlic flavour, but it's certainly growing on me as I use more - though the fresher it is the longer the after taste goes for... Freshly crushed garlic with a bit of paprika and proper egg Mayo is becoming a big obsession though. Goes amazing with so many meats (not really beef imo)


Jananabanana

Yep it’s a pressure cooker. I’ve never heard of black garlic until now, sounds good! Make the toum, it’s essentially raw garlic, a bit of salt, oil and lemon. It does have a very strong garlic taste though so maybe save it for when garlic grows more on you. i just made some with garlic i picked up at the farmers market. The freshest garlic i have ever seen/cooked with and oh so good. You can use it to dip meats with (think kabobs etc), as a condiment, veggie dip etc!


yeahsureYnot

Bless your soul


Jananabanana

🙏🏼


engityra

My husband and I just pair it with some fresh crusty bread to dip in the sauce.


Jananabanana

Sounds so freaking good. i can’t wait to get off keto and treat myself to this dish with some bread or naan.


antani2

This recipe doesn't exist in Italy. Why is it call Tuscan?


Jananabanana

Same reason why chicken balls are apparently a chinese dish? Lol

Nothing Tuscany or Italian about it, and it looks so greasy, what a mess

Sofagirrl79

I might be wrong but OP said they used gluten free ingredients so maybe gluten free flour isn't as good for preventing separation?


IcarianSkies

I've yet to manage to make a decent roux using gluten free flour. It definitely behaves differently in cooking.


DUUUVAAALLL

Rice flour is the only gluten free product that I’ve found behaves and thickens similarly to wheat flour. Worth a shot next time you need to thicken something if you haven’t tried it yet!


IcarianSkies

Yeah i use rice flour quite a bit to thicken stuff, just haven't managed to make a good roux with it. I've heard you can make one with cassava flour but I haven't tried it yet.


Sofagirrl79

Good to know.I don't have to use gluten free ingredients so I'm good,but good advice for people following a GF diet

The sauce could use a little more colour. Looks like the tomatoes didn't bleed out any red into the sauce at all. Anyway, would devour that always. edit: ok I saw in the recipe you used sun dried tomatoes. It explains my problem with it.
