Chicken Florentine

  • Prep time:
  • Cook time:
  • Total time:
  • Yield: 2-4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Recipe type: Entree, Main Course


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise
  • Fresh Spinach – about 6 ounces
  • 4 garlic cloves – minced
  • 2 Tbs. sweet onion – minced
  • 1 ½ cups white wine (pinot grigio)
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • Fresh nutmeg
  • Salt & pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  1. Season chicken breast with salt and pepper on one side and then dredge lightly in flour. I used a fine quick mixing type of flour and sprinkled it on, but you can use regular flour and just simply coat the chicken lightly if you don’t have it. The brand name of the flour is Wondra and it’s used to make gravy. It’s great for pan searing.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Swirl some olive oil in the pan, just enough to lightly coat the bottom. Add the spinach. Season with salt and pepper and toss. Add several grates of fresh nutmeg and toss. Cook until spinach wilts and remove from pan to a plate and cover it with foil to keep warm.
  3. In the same pan, add some olive oil and then add the chicken. Cook the chicken until it gets brown on one side. Turn it over, reduce the heat to medium and brown the other side. Once the chicken has cooked on both sides, remove from the pan to a plate and cover with foil, while you make the sauce.
  4. In the same pan over medium heat, add about a tablespoon of olive oil. Add the garlic and the onion. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 2 minutes until the onion softens.
  5. Add the wine. Raise the heat to medium high and cook until it reduces by about half.
  6. While the wine is reducing, chop the spinach and then recover with foil.
  7. Once the wine has reduce, lower the heat to medium and gradually stir in the cream. Add the parsley and several grates of fresh nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine. If using ground nutmeg, use only a small pinch. Cook for another 3 minutes until the sauce reduces slightly.
  8. Return chicken to the pan with the sauce. Coat chicken with the sauce and cook for about another three minutes or until the chicken is heated through.
  9. Serve: place some of the spinach on a plate and top with the chicken and sauce. Recipe by: Diane Kometa
