Pan Sauteed Chicken and Mushrooms with Garlic Spinach

Ingredients

Serves 4 – 5

  • Olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided

  • 3 large boneless chicken breasts, sliced lengthwise into 2 thin cutlets each

  • Salt

  • pepper

  • Flour

  • 2 cups sliced baby portebello mushrooms

  • 2 bunches of baby spinach, washed and drained and paper towels

  • 3 large cloves of garlic, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon flour

  • 1/2 cup white wine

  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

  • Squeeze of lemon juice

Directions

  1. Heat a large saute pan to medium high and drizzle with olive oil and about 1 tablespoon of butter. Season chicken cutlets with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Saute for 3 – 4 minutes per side until lightly browned. Remove cutlets from pan and cover with foil to keep warm.

  2. In the same pan, drizzle a little more olive oil and add the sliced mushrooms. Saute for 5 – 7 minutes until they begin to brown slightly. Remove from pan and keep warm with the chicken.

  3. In the same pan, drizzle a little more olive oil and add the spinach in 2 batches. Cook each batch until the spinach is wilted and most of the water has cooked away. Remove spinach to a plate. Add garlic to pan and cook for 1 – 2 minutes until it just begins to brown. Add more olive oil if the pan seems dry. Add back the wilted spinach and a pinch of salt and pepper and toss to combine. Remove to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

  4. In the same pan, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. When it just begins to bubble, whisk in the 1 tablespoon of flour. Cook for about 30 seconds. Whisk in wine and stock and cook for 2 – 3 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Turn heat to low and keep sauce warm.

  5. To serve, place Garlic Spinach on a large platter. Top with the sauteed chicken and mushrooms and drizzle with the wine sauce. Serve.
