Keto Tuscan Chicken

I am not sure I have seen this in Tuscany. I have known this dish as such for ages, and I will keep using it, so please my lovelies Tuscans, if this is not correct I beg your pardon.

However, it does honor Tuscan and Italian cuisine, as it is based on using fresh and simple ingredients, is rich in flavor, it is filling, it is heaven on a plate. I promise it will leave you with a smile after eating it. It cannot be more Tuscan than that, I promise.

Note: This time, besides what is in the recipe card, I also added a few leaves of parsley, just for a touch.
