How to Make Awesome Sautéed Chicken Breast w/Spinach


  • 2Gather your ingredients.
  • 3Pick four good-sized spinach leaves and reserve.
  • 4Slice the chicken breast in two.
  • 5Chef’s Tip: If you have a chance to brine the chicken breast, do so. It will give the dish a bit more savory flavor.
  • 6Salt and pepper both sides of the sliced chicken breasts.
  • 7Add the butter and olive oil to a sauté pan over medium heat.
  • 8After the butter has melted, add the chicken breasts.
  • 9Chef's Note: Sauté until no longer pink, about 3 to 5 minutes per side.
  • 10Chef’s Note: Don’t overcook the chicken or it will become rubbery.
  • 11Remove the chicken from the sauté pan and reserve.
  • 12Add the spinach and the minced garlic to the sauté pan.
  • 13Add the tablespoon of balsamic vinegar.
  • 14Sauté the spinach until it wilts, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 15When the spinach is wilted, remove from the heat and stir in the feta cheese, and add a bit of salt and pepper.
  • 16While the spinach is cooking, add a slice of provolone cheese to each of the sliced chicken breasts.
  • 17Place under a broiler, until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown, about 2 to 3 minutes
  • 18Roll up the reserved spinach leaves into a tight roll and chiffonade.
  • 19Chef’s Note: A chiffonade is when you roll a bunch of herb leaves into a tight roll, and then cut into this strips. It makes for an excellent visual presentation.
  • 21Divide the spinach between two serving plates.
  • 22Add the sliced chicken breast to the top.
  • 23Garnish with some of the spinach chiffonade. Enjoy.
