  • 2 large chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Flour for dredging
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter divided
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 pinch Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 2 cups (loosely packed) fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese


  • Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise so you have 4 thinner pieces. Season each side of the chicken with the garlic powder and salt & pepper. Coat the chicken in flour on all sides.
  • Add the oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter to a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes/side until golden. Take the pan off the heat and remove the chicken to a plate.
  • Return the pan to the heat and add the rest of the butter and the minced garlic. Let it cook for about 30 seconds or so.
  • Add the wine, chicken broth, and Italian seasoning to the skillet. Let it cook for 3-5 minutes or until it's noticeably reduced.
  • Add in the cream and let it bubble for 2 minutes, then stir in the spinach.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan and cook, over medium heat, for another 4-5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickens up a bit. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over top of the chicken and sauce prior to serving, and season it with extra salt & pepper if needed.


  • If you prefer the spinach to be a bit less wilted/cooked, add it to the skillet during the last couple minutes of cooking.
