Free Creamy Italian Chicken Skillet
This Creamy Italian Chicken Skillet tastes like a fancy dish from an Italian bistro. Seasoned chicken, spinach, and tomatoes come together beautifully in the creamy parmesan sauce. Serve this dish with a side salad or zoodles to complete the meal.
- 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 4 (4-5 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and oregano. Sauté for 6-8 minutes on each side, or until done. Remove chicken.
- Introduce the butter to the same skillet, and allow it to melt. Sauté the garlic in the butter until fragrant, careful not to burn.
- Next, toss tomatoes into the skillet. Season with salt and pepper and cook until the tomatoes release their juices.
- Next, add spinach and sauté until just wilted.
- Pour in the heavy cream and sprinkle the parmesan cheese. Simmer until the sauce thickens a bit, about 3 minutes.
- Return chicken to the skillet, and cook for another 5 minutes.
- Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice if desired.
- You can substitute unsweetened coconut milk for heavy cream.
- This dish pairs perfectly with zucchini noodles!
