For the Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter6 cloves garlic, minced1 cup chicken broth1 cup heavy cream1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese1 teaspoon Italian seasoning1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)Salt and pepper, to taste

Prepare the Chicken:Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.In a large skillet or pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.Cook the Potatoes:In the same pan, add the baby potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden and fork-tender. If needed, add a splash of chicken broth to help soften the potatoes and prevent sticking. Remove the potatoes from the pan and set aside with the chicken.

  1. Make the Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce:
    • Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter to the pan. Once melted, add the minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant.Pour in the chicken broth to deglaze the pan, scraping up any browned bits. Add the heavy cream, grated Parmesan, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes (if using). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and let the sauce simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until it begins to thicken.
    Combine Ingredients:
    • Return the cooked potatoes to the pan, stirring them into the sauce. Add the spinach and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the spinach has wilted.Place the cooked chicken breasts back into the pan, spooning the sauce and vegetables over them. Let everything simmer together for another 2-3 minutes, ensuring the chicken is heated through and everything is well coated in the sauce.
    • Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary. Serve the chicken, potatoes, and spinach hot, with extra grated Parmesan cheese on top if desired.
  2. Tips for Success:
  3. Chicken Thickness: If your chicken breasts are very thick, consider slicing them horizontally to create thinner cutlets for more even and quicker cooking.Sauce Consistency: Adjust the thickness of the sauce to your liking by simmering it for longer to reduce and thicken, or by adding a bit more chicken broth to thin it out.Serving Suggestions: This dish is quite hearty on its own but can also be served with a side of crusty bread to soak up the delicious sauce.

This Chicken, Potatoes, and Spinach with Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce is a wonderfully comforting and flavorful dish that’s sure to please any crowd. Enjoy the creamy, garlicky goodness alongside the nutritious vegetables and tender chicken for a complete meal that’s both satisfying and delicious.
