Wanted something easy, kinda quick, and delicious. This checked all boxes!
chicken breast, I used one cut in half length wise, but you could use 2-3 larger ones
2-3 tbsp butter
About 3.5 cups spinach
About 1 cup mushrooms, I used baby bella’s
About 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 garlic cloves
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
baby golden potatoes
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. While it’s preheating quarter your potatoes and put onto a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil on top and season with your favorite seasonings. I used garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika. Pop your potatoes into the oven then heat some olive oil in a pan. Season your chicken with some Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder. Cook your chicken until internal temp reaches 165. Set aside on a plate. Grate your cheese if you’re grating it yourself. Melt your butter in the same pan and then add your tomatoes and mushrooms. Cook until the tomatoes burst, then mash them. Add your spinach and let it wilt, then add your garlic. Pour in the heavy whipping cream and Parmesan cheese and mix all together. Add your chicken back into the pan and cover. Heat the chicken back up in the sauce. By now your potatoes should be done, pull those out. Serve with some sauce over the potatoes, or not. Totally up to you, but the sauce is amazing and key. I grated a little more Parmesan cheese on top.
I haven’t posted a lot on here, mainly because my life has been hectic! T and I are moving in together, and we’ve been actively trying to redo a bunch of rooms in his house so when I move all my stuff in we don’t have to move anything to paint or anything. Because of that I’ve been recycling a lot of our favorite old recipes and haven’t had anything new to try. This weekend we decided to lay down new flooring in an extra room we’re going to use as my office/craft room. This room has been an absolute headache. We ripped down old wallpaper to find out that the drywall was never sealed, the floor under the rug wasn’t the original hardwood throughout the rest of the house, but some kind of terrible ceramic tile. We’ve figured out it’s probably an addition to the house, but man. That’s frustrating to us. Hopefully it’ll end up looking really nice when we’re done. Wish us luck!
