Easy Delicious Lemon Chicken

This was for dinner tonight.  It was delicious and super easy.  I served the lemon chicken with pasta and a green salad.

Ingredients: boneless chicken breats, salt and pepper, 3 tablespoons of butter, 3 cloves of garlic minced, 1 cup of chicken broth, 1/2 cup of heavy cream, 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, juice of 1 lemon, 2 cups of spinach chopped.

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste.  Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side; set chicken aside in a pyrex dish.  Melt remaining tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, and lemon juice.  Bring to a boil; reduce heat, stir in spinach, and simmer until the spinach has wilted and the sauce has slightly thickened, about 3-5 minutes.  Pour sauce mixture over the chicken in the pyrex dish and place into oven and roast until completely cooked through about 30 minutes.
