How to make Chicken with Spinach and Mushrooms in Creamy Parmesan Sauce

Prepare the Chicken:

Step 1: Place the chicken breasts on a large plate. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Step 2: Add a tbsp olive oil and a tbsp butter in a large skillet. Melt the butter over medium-high heat.

Step 3: When the butter has melted, add the chicken into the skillet. Brown for about 4 minutes per side. Then, transfer to a plate.

Prepare the Sauce:

Step 2: Add in a tbsp of flour and continue to cook until it is no longer raw.

Step 3: Gradually pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Allow simmering.

Step 4: Once the liquid is simmering, add in the Parmesan cheese and stir. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.

Step 5: Season with salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning according to taste.

Step 6: Into the sauce, add the spinach and let it wilt.

Step 7: Place the cooked mushrooms back to the skillet and stir to incorporate.

Step 8: Add in the cooked chicken and reheat for another 2 to 3 minutes. Cover the pan.
