Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper each
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 1 6 oz jar sun dried tomatoes drained, chopped
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  • Heat a skillet over medium high heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Pound chicken breasts out to even thickness and sprinkle on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Cook chicken in heated skillet for 5-6 minutes on each side or until fully cooked. Rest for 4 minutes, then slice into thin strips with a sharp knife or mandolin.
