Skillet Chicken Florentine Simple ingredients, one skillet, delicious dinner!

Skillet Chicken Florentine is a gluten free, low carb delicious dinner with simple ingredients!

One of our favorite meals is Skillet Chicken Florentine. We all like spinach and chicken and we all REALLY like creamy, cheesy sauce on anything. This is all of that. I love that it is made in one skillet. Who has time to wash a bunch of pots and pans, anyway? For that matter, if you HAD time, who WANTS to?! Not me! This electric skillet is so easy to wash too. I love this thing!

4 pounds chicken tenderloins (or breasts cut into strips)

Salt and pepper to taste

Extra virgin olive oil

(2) 12 oz bags frozen chopped spinach, thawed

2 Tbsp minced garlic

½ cup grated parmesan cheese

1 ½ cups heavy cream


Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook in olive oil over medium heat until a little bit browned. They do not have to be cooked through.

Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Add a little more olive oil and the spinach and garlic. Cook and stir for just a few minutes.

Stir in the cheese and cream and combine it all well.

Spread the spinach mixture over the bottom of the skillet and add the chicken on top.

Cover and cook on low for about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. It should be at a gentle simmer.

This makes a lot so half the recipe if you want. I make a big batch because it is wonderful warmed up for lunch the next day.
