Chicken with Spinach in Creamy Parmesan Sauce


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!


  • 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.


  • 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.
