A delicious and impressive dinner in under 30 minutes!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (more or less, to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (more or less, to taste)
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise (about 11/2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 cups tightly packed fresh spinach


  1. Season sliced chicken breasts on each side with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add chicken and cook until golden brown, cooked through and no longer pink (about 4 minutes on each side depending on thickness).
  3. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
  4. Add garlic to skillet and cook until fragrant, stirring constantly (about 30 seconds).
  5. Add broth, cream, sun-dried tomatoes, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.  Stir well to combine.
  6. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently.  Add spinach and continue to simmer (while stirring frequently) until spinach is wilted and sauce is slightly thickened, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  8. Return chicken to skillet and serve topped with cream sauce.


Half and half can be substituted for heavy cream.
