The Deen Bros. Lighter Chicken Florentine

Ingredients

  • 4 (5 oz) chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, fresh ground
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lb shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, caps sliced
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (5 oz) container baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat jarlsberg cheese, shredded, or swiss

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray a medium baking dish with cooking spray.

Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer the chicken in one layer to the baking dish.

Add the oil to the skillet along with the mushrooms, shallots and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are tender, about 8 minutes. Add the spinach and cook, stirring occasionally, until the spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes.

Whisk together the flour with 2 tablespoons of the milk in a 2-cup glass measure until smooth. Stir in the remaining milk, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and nutmeg until blended. Add the milk mixture to the spinach mixture in the skillet, and cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture bubbles and begins to thicken slightly, about 2 minutes. Pour the sauce evenly over the chicken. Sprinkle evenly with the cheese.

Bake, uncovered, until bubbly around the edges and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
