Cook Time : 50 mins
Total Time : 60 mins

Ingredients
  • 4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts cut in half
  • 1/2 Tablespoon paprika
  • 3 Tablespoons butter divided
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Splash of dry white wine optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • Dash salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Season the chicken with salt, pepper and paprika. Set aside.
  • Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a large oven-proof skillet (a Le Creuset Dutch Oven works well or a RockCrok or cast iron skillet) over medium high heat.
  • Add the chicken and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove and set chicken aside on separate plate.
  • While the chicken is resting, return back to the same skillet and melt remaining tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Add garlic and cook stirring frequently about 1 minute.
  • Stir in chicken broth, splash of dry white wine, lemon juice and thyme.
  • Bring to a boil and reduce heat and let the sauce reduce and thicken.
  • Continue to cook the sauce about 5-7 minutes so the sauce becomes thicker. You don't want the sauce to become too runny!
  • Add the heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, turn temperature down and cook for a minute or two.
  • Add in the spinach and simmer until the spinach has wilted and the sauce has slightly thickened.
  • Once your sauce is to the desired thickness, return the chicken to the skillet.
  • Place in the oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes until internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees.
  • Remove the dish and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
