I’ve been doing really good at keeping up with my workout routine so I treated myself to a plate of this creamy chicken goodness. It’s so very simple with everything being prepared in the same skillet. The chicken is cooked first, then transferred to a plate while the easy cream sauce is being prepared.
I just LOVE the combination of sun dried tomatoes and spinach. You can serve this over your favorite pasta and/or with a salad. I ate is just like it was! It was THAT GOOD.
Oh, you’ll probably want some crusty French bread to soak up all of that amazing cream sauce. Or just eat it with a spoon like I did. Enjoy!
