Chicken Florentine

Thanks to Wendy at our Napier, NZ centre for this pic.

Pan-fried chicken served with garlic-flavoured spinach – it even looks healthy! Serves 4

Ingredients

¼ tsp pepper
500g chicken breasts or thighs, cut in half
1 Tbsp olive oil
500g fresh spinach, or 250g packet frozen spinach
3 Tbsp shredded basil
1 clove garlic, minced
80g grated parmesan

Method

  1. Sprinkle the pepper over each chicken piece. Place to the side.
  2. Heat a frying pan to medium and add the oil. Add chicken pieces and gently cook for 10 mins or until cooked through, turning once.
  3. Wash and drain fresh spinach, then place spinach, basil and garlic in a large saucepan with ¼ cup water and cook until spinach is wilted (approx 2 mins). Drain off excess liquid and toss with a fork.
  4. Place spinach on a serving plate and arrange chicken on top. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve immediately.
