PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOK TIME: 20 minutes
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/3" thickness with a meat mallet
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 small yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
1 cup spinach, chopped
1/2 cup oil-packed, sun-dried tomatoes, plus the oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Heat a large skillet to medium-high and add oil. Cook chicken for 5-7 minutes or until the chicken's juices run clear, flipping once in the middle of the cooking process. Remove chicken and set aside. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes, just until the onions are beginning to brown. Add garlic and cook for one minute more.
Add stock, making sure to scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan with the back of a wooden spoon. Simmer the stock until it reduces by half. Add cream, tomatoes, spinach and cheese; stir to combine. Add chicken back in and cook until the chicken is heated through. Serve immediately.
