Ingredients

Chicken

Sauce

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup Hood Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1/2 cup Asiago cheese, grated
  • 1 cup baby spinach, packed
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup baby bella mushrooms, chopped
  • fresh parsley, for garnish
  • Parmesan Cheese, for topping

Instructions

Chicken

  • Slice the chicken breasts in half to create 4 thin cutlets. Rub the chicken on both sides with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. 
  • Spread the flour out on a medium plate and coat each of the chicken cutlets with flour.
  • Add the olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook each side for 3 to 5 minutes until golden brown and an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached, transfer the chicken to a plate.

Sauce

  • Add the garlic and chicken broth to the pan and use a wooden spatula to scrape and deglaze the bottom of the pan, allow the broth to come to a simmer.
  • Add in the Hood Heavy Cream, salt, pepper, Italian seasonings, and asiago cheese. Stir frequently until the cheese has melted. Bring the creamy mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently.
  • Add in the vegetables and continue to stir until sauce begins to thicken and the spinach begins to wilt. Add the chicken back into the pan and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Serve by itself with a salad or with pasta*, garnish with parsley and add Parmesan cheese and additional salt and pepper to taste.

Notes

  • If serving with pasta, I recommend doubling the sauce recipe.
  • I use fresh sun-dried¬†tomatoes, not the jarred kind. You can use the jarred kind, but I recommend draining and patting with a paper towel before adding to the sauce.
  • Recipe adapted from Salt & Lavender.
