Course Main Course
1/2cupsun dried tomatoes
2cupsshredded Parmesan cheese
1chicken bouillon cube
In a small bowl, mix salt, pepper, Italian seasonings, garlic powder, and garlic salt. Using half of the seasoning mixture, season both sides of the chicken breasts with seasoning mixture. Set the rest of the seasonings aside.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the olive oil and chicken breasts. Let the chicken breasts cook for 5 minutes per side, or until browned.
Cover the skillet and turn the heat to medium-low. Allow the chicken breasts to cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees and they are no longer pink in the middle. Depending on how thick your chicken breasts are, this may take 3-5 additional minutes.
Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside. Add butter, onions, sun dried tomatoes and garlic to the skillet. Mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes over medium heat.
Add water and the chicken bouillon cube and stir well. Deglaze the bottom of the pan by using your spatula to gently scrape the bottom of the pan to get all browned bits up and into the sauce.
Add the remaining seasoning mixture and stir well. Allow the pan to simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Add the heavy cream and parmesan cheese and stir well to combine. When the pan starts to gently bubble add the spinach and stir.
Turn the heat to low and add the chicken breasts back into the skillet. Cover and let simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Spoon sauce over the top of chicken and serve.
Pro tip: Add ½ cup of shredded parmesan cheese to your sauce after you add the spinach for an extra layer of creaminess.
