Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

Season the chicken with salt, pepper and paprika. Set aside.

Step 3

Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a large oven-proof skillet (a Le Creuset Dutch Oven works well or a RockCrok or cast iron skillet) over medium high heat.

Step 4

Add the chicken and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove and set chicken aside on separate plate.

Step 5

While the chicken is resting, return back to the same skillet and melt remaining tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Add garlic and cook stirring frequently about 1 minute.

Step 6

Stir in chicken broth, splash of dry white wine, lemon juice and thyme.

Step 7

Bring to a boil and reduce heat and let the sauce reduce and thicken.

Step 8

Continue to cook the sauce about 5-7 minutes so the sauce becomes thicker. You don't want the sauce to become too runny!

Step 9

Add the heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, turn temperature down and cook for a minute or two.

Step 10

Add in the spinach and simmer until the spinach has wilted and the sauce has slightly thickened.

Step 11

Once your sauce is to the desired thickness, return the chicken to the skillet.

Step 12

Place in the oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes until internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees.

Step 13

Remove the dish and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
