Servings: 6

Keywords: chicken, spinach

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins


  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 3 tablespoons capers
  • 4 tablespoons fresh parsley - finely chopped
  • Instructions

    1. Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally to form two thin cutlets from each breast. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a heavy skillet, on medium-high heat, melt one tablespoon of butter in one tablespoon of olive oil. Sauté the chicken for about 3-4 minutes each side, until cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a plate, cover in foil and keep warm. Remove excess oil from the skillet, add one tablespoon butter, lemon juice, and wine then bring to a gentle boil. Once it begins to boil turn off and add capers and parsley. While the sauce is being prepared, in a separate skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sauté the spinach and flavor with salt and pepper. Spinach is ready when it starts to wilt – do not overcook. Pour the sauce over chicken, top with sautéed spinach and serve. Click for larger image
