Chicken Florentine

Florentine in a recipe title means the dish features spinach, but you could also make this with kale, broccoli rabe, escarole or other greens.  This is a family friendly dish!

Recipe from: Weight Watchers Success


*2 teas olive oil
*4 (3oz) thin-sliced skinless chicken breasts
*1/2 teas salt
*1/4 teas pepper
*1 small onion, thinly sliced
*1 (10oz) bag triple-washed spinach, cleaned
*1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
*1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Jarlsberg or Swiss cheese


1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil.  Saute the chicken until golden brown, about 3 minutes.  Turn over adn sprinkle with 1/4 teas of the salt and 1/8 teas of the pepper; saute until cooked through, about 3 minutes.  Transfer the chicken to a plate.

2. In the skillet, saute the onion until tender, about 3 minutes.  Add the spinach, in batches if necessary; cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes.  Add the wine; cook until most of the liquid evaporates, about 1 minute.  Return the chicken to the skillet; sprinkle evenly with the cheese.  Cook, covered, until the cheese melts, about 1 minute.
