Chicken Florentine

Chicken Florentine


  • 3 chicken breasts (or any protein on hand)
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 cup red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 small heads kale or 9 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 2 Oz Brie cheese Or 2 ounces 1/3 less fat cream cheese, I like Philadelphia
  • ¼ cup half & half cream
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • kosher salt
  • fresh black pepper



  • In a large skillet over medium heat add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and 1/2 tablespoon of butter, red bell pepper and garlic and cook for about 4 minutes.
  • Add spinach season with a pinch of salt and pepper mix until the spinach wilts down.
  • Add cream cheese, half & half and parmesan cheese mix well until cream cheese is melted and resembles creamed spinach.
  • Heat a separate skillet on medium high heat, add remaining oil and butter.
  • Season fish on both sides with salt and pepper and place on the hot pan.
  • Cook 6 minutes on first side and flip chicken over and cook other side an additional 5 minutes, until cooked through and browned. (If it’s too thick, you can cut into pieces or throw in oven on 350 til cooked thru)
  • Divide the spinach mixture on the bottom of each plate and top with piece of protein.
