- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 4 cups fresh spinach leaves
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


1. **Season the Chicken* Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.

2. **Sear the Chicken* In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

3. **Make the Sauce* In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and chopped onion. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the fresh spinach leaves to the skillet and cook until wilted.

4. **Add the Cream* Pour the heavy cream into the skillet and stir to combine with the spinach mixture. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly.

5. **Smother the Chicken* Return the cooked chicken breasts to the skillet and spoon the spinach sauce over the top. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the chicken and sauce.

6. **Serve* Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired, and serve the Smothered Chicken with Spinach hot with your favorite side dishes.

- Feel free to customize the dish by adding extra vegetables like mushrooms or bell peppers to the sauce.
- For a lighter version, you can substitute half-and-half or milk for the heavy cream.
- Serve the Smothered Chicken with Spinach over cooked pasta or rice for a heartier meal.
