YIELD: 3 SERVINGS
PREP TIME: 5 MIN
COOK TIME: 20 MIN
2 juicy chicken breasts
3 tablespoons of rich butter, divided
A pinch of salt and pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon of aromatic oregano
1 finely chopped medium onion
4 minced cloves of garlic
1 jar of sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
1/2 cup of savory chicken broth
1/2 cup of creamy heavy cream
1/3 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 cup of tender spinach (or more for extra greens)
Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of oregano, ensuring that each piece is well coated.
In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts to the pan and cook for 4 minutes on each side until they are golden brown. Once fully cooked, transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
To create the creamy spinach parmesan sauce, add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the same pan. Sauté the onion, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and 1/2 teaspoon of oregano until fragrant. Gradually add in the chicken broth, heavy cream, and parmesan cheese, whisking until the mixture is smooth. Let the sauce simmer for 2-3 minutes, adjusting the seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
Stir in the spinach into the sauce and cook until wilted. Return the chicken breasts to the pan and reheat for 2-3 minutes.
Serve the creamy chicken breast in spinach parmesan sauce immediately, topped with fresh chopped parsley for a burst of color and flavor. Get ready for a tantalizing taste experience!
