Servings 4 People
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 cup white wine or chicken stock
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup grated parmesan
- 3 handfuls fresh spinach
- Salt and pepper to taste
First, if your chicken is a little too thick, you may want to cut it in half lengthwise, or pound it using a meat tenderizer before cooking it. Don't worry about pounding too much, your chicken breasts will plump up when cooked. Next, you want to make sure that you finely mince you garlic cloves.
In a shallow plate, combine flour, 1 tsp pepper and 1 tsp salt. Dredge your chicken breast in flour mixture and set aside.
Warm up a non-stick an on high heat and add your olive oil. Cook your chicken breasts for 2-3 minutes on each side or until they get golden brown. Remove the chicken and lower the heat to medium-low.
Add your butter along with your minced garlic. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the garlic is slightly golden. Add your white wine or broth and cook for another 5-7 minutes until the alcohol evaporates and the wine is reduced.
Add your heavy cream and parmesan and gently stir. Add your spinach one handful at a time and cook until it reduces in size. Place your chicken on top of the sauce and cook until the sauce reduces to your desired consistency. I like to cook it for another 5-7 minutes.
Serve with pasta, mashed potatoes or with a slice of crusty bread. Enjoy!
