Ingredients

  • 4 8-ounce boneless skinless Chicken Breasts (aproximately 2 pounds total)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground Black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon Unsalted butter
  • 3 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 3 cups fresh Spinach (one 5-ounce container)
  • 1 ½ cup Cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 1/2 cups Half and half
  • 2 tablespoon Italian parsley chopped
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle ½ tsp of salt and ½ tsp pepper on both sides of the chicken breasts to season.

  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook for 5 - 7 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Remove from the pan.

  3. Lower the heat to medium-low heat, and add the butter to the skillet. Once the butter has melted, saute the garlic 2 - 3 minutes.

  4. Stir in the spinach and tomatoes until the spinach is mostly wilted.

  5. Sir the half and half, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and Italian seasoning into the skillet. Bring to a simmer.

  6. Stir in the parsley and Parmesan cheese. Stir frequently over medium high heat until the sauce begins to thicken (aproximately 5 minutes).

  7. Add the chicken back into the pan and spoon the sauce over it until covered.
