LEMON-GARLIC CHICKEN WITH CREAMY SPINACH

Welcome to Foodie Friday!

This week has passed so quickly. I'm not sure where it has gone. Hubby and I are traveling to the Florida house for a couple days. We are going to spend the Christmas holiday in Florida this year with our family. This trip we decided would be a great time to get the house decorated inside. Of course, this is quite early, even by my standards. I've learned that as the holidays approach, my calendar becomes quite full, and if I am proactive....as my family says..."When Mom's happy, everyone's happy!"

The recipe that I've chosen for today's blog is LEMON-GARLIC CHICKEN WITH CREAMY SPINACH. It's one of those really easy light recipes, that tastes great, serves 4, and takes 45 minutes to prepare.

I've made is several times for hubby, and each time he gives his seal of approval.  AND the left-overs are terrific the next day too! 





Begin by heating a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add canola oil, then onions
and garlic. Cook until onions start to soften, 8-10 minutes. Push onions and garlic to the side of the pan and add the chicken breasts. Cook until golden brown on both sides. (2-3 min per side).


Add the chicken broth. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through, 18-20 minutes. Transfer chicken to platter.




ADD-cream to the pan and boil until slightly reduced., 1-2 minutes. (Be careful not to curdle.) Stir in spinach until wilted, about 1 minute. 



Serve with chicken and lemon wedges.
