Tasty Tuesday Chicken Florentine!

It's time for another recipe! I had some cream, chicken, Locatelli cheese, and spinach on hand, so I put my own spin on a classic. The guys gave it two thumbs up!

Chicken Florentine

2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, butterflied, then cut into pieces and pounded flat.
1/2 cup flour
2 tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 10 oz bag of fresh spinach
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese (Locatelli)
garlic powder

Egg noodles cooked according to package directions. (about 1/3 of a one pound bag)

Prepare chicken pieces as above. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then place in a bowl with a tight-fitting lid, add flour and shake it until chicken is coated with flour. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook just until it starts to change color--not browned. Remove garlic. Add butter to skillet. Place floured chicken in skillet and cook until golden brown on all sides. Remove chicken and add spinach to skillet. Saute until the spinach is wilted. Then add cream and reserved garlic and heat until bubbling. Add the chicken and grated cheese and cook about two minutes more. Season to taste with more salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add cooked noodles, toss gently, serve, and enjoy! Makes about three or four servings.

  2. That recipe looks good. I did a chicken stir-fry with fresh ginger root and some fresh garlic with red peppers, mushrooms, baby corn ears and onions. It came out pretty good - the kids loved it.

    Have fun Donna! I wanna do that someday XD

  6. Looks delicious, Cheryl! Um, I mean the chicken, of course. Mostly;-)

  8. Whew! Hi everyone! That looks delicious Cheryl! I love your recipes! Nice abs on our stud today....but what is he wearing on top...I don't get it....

  9. Hi girls!

    That looks so good Cheryl. And to top it off we get an Italian for desert. Yumm!

    Hope you had fun at the Casino Donna!

  10. I don't quite get that top thing, either, Lisa. It's interesting, though.
    Yes, ladies, the chicken was quite tasty. Unfortunately, I cannot vouch for the flavor of Leo, but he does look scrumptious, doesn't he? Maybe even better than gelato!
