Directions

1. To make the creamy chicken and spinach recipe: Thoroughly season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon oregano on both sides.

2. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter with a bit of oil from the sun-dried tomatoes over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook for about 4 minutes on each side until browned. Once done and no longer pink, transfer grilled chicken breasts to a plate and set aside.

3. To make the creamy spinach parmesan sauce, add the remaining tablespoon butter to the same pan. Cook onion, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon oregano and sun-dried tomatoes. Slowly add chicken broth, heavy cream, and Parmesan cheese and mix to combine until smooth while simmering for 2-3 minutes. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

4. Add spinach to the mixture and continue cooking until wilted. Add the chicken breasts back to the pan and reheat for 2-3 minutes. Serve the creamy chicken with spinach and parmesan sauce immediately, garnished with fresh chopped parsley. Enjoy!

Tips for the chicken and spinach recipe

  • Remove chicken breasts from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before cooking to bring them close to room temperature.
  • Season chicken just before cooking to prevent drawing out moisture and drying out the meat.
  • If you have large chicken breasts, pound them or slice them horizontally to make the thickness even. Chicken will cook faster this way.
  • You can sub crispy bacon instead of sun dried tomatoes for a nice flavor.
  • For a variant of this chicken recipe, you can use chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts. They’re delicious and cook faster! Just keep an eye on it so they don’t overcook.

What other readers say about this creamy spinach chicken recipe

“This is amazing!! Winner in our house! The sauce is so delicious, cannot say enough good things about it. I have given the recipe to all my friends. Thank you!” – Nichole

“Really delicious! I substituted the half and half with Coffeemates natural bliss half and half (almond and coconut) and used thin chicken breasts. First time trying a dairy free half and half and it was definitely a win!” – Leah

‘This is one of the tastiest and easiest recipes I’ve made in a long time. Served with a spinach salad with tangy mustard dressing, walnuts and apple” – Anel

“Delicious! I used chicken thighs since that’s what I had added mushrooms and substituted fresh cherry tomatoes for sun dried” – Susan

“Followed recipe just added 3 tablespoons of pasta water to onion mixture to soften it. Tasted really good will make again” – Kelly

“Good, very rich and customizable. […] Served over rice, but this could go on anything. I had large chicken breasts, so doubled sauce, cooked chicken longer, added more spinach, a few chopped artichoke hearts, and sliced mushrooms. Some substitutions that I did are using grated Parmesan, Romano & Asiago cheese blend, Tuscan seasoning blend, and chicken bone broth. I bet corn and zucchini would be good additions.” – Tanya

    I don’t have heavy cream always on hand, could I switch out for sour cream?

    Do you think coconut cream could work to replace the cream?

    Made this recipe for dinner tonight, and really enjoyed it! It was pretty easy to make and tasted yummy. I do wish that the instructions told a specific amount of time for cooking the onions/garlic/tomatoes, I cooked them for maybe 3-5 minutes and that seemed to be fine.
