I made this recipe for my husband, who has to work out of town. He and the guys in his quarters take turns cooking, and he wanted something different, healthy, and easy. I apologize for the canned ingredients, but this is a kitchen-naive man without a lot of time to cook. He will usually shop at a whole foods healthfood store, so that helps a bit.
This is good served with rice or linguini. They just need to follow the directions on the package of rice or pasta.

How to Make Easy Chicken Florentine

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash and dry the chicken breasts, and season with salt and pepper. Place half the olive oil in a medium skillet and cook the chicken about 4 minutes on each side over medium heat. Remove to plate, cover with foil, and keep warm.
  2. Place the rest of the olive oil in the same skillet and heat over medium heat. Sautee the mushrooms and onions until well cooked and the liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated. Sprinkle with the garlic powder.
  3. Add the spinach to the skillet and heat through until wilted. Stir in the soup, cream, and nutmeg, and blend well. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and cover. Cook over low heat until chicken is done and flavors blend, about 8 minutes longer.
