The Original White Meat!

Yes, chicken!  And whenever I run across a recipe that is super simple, I just can’t resist.  Here’s a recipe that will only take you thirty (30) minutes to prepare but will taste like you slaved in the kitchen for hours!

Chicken Parmesan in a Garlic Mushroom Cream Sauce

Ingredients
4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
Salt and pepper
8 ounces of sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup of butter
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon of flour
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1 cup of heavy cream
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of spinach, chopped

Directions
1.  Season your chicken on both sides (salt and pepper).  In a large skillet, add the olive oil and cook the chicken on medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until browned/cooked to where there is no longer any pink in the center.  Remove the chicken and set aside.  Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook for a few minutes until they are tender.  Remove them and set aside.

2.  For the sauce, add the butter to you skillet and melt.  Throw in the minced garlic and cook until it is tender (a minute or so).  Add the flour and whisk until it is incorporated and slightly thick.  Whisk in the chicken broth, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.  Add the spinach and let it simmer until the sauce thickens and the spinach wilts.  Add the chicken and the mushrooms back into your sauce (to coat).  Serve on either a bed of rice, or over the pasta of your choice.

Yum!
