A Weeknight Wonder or Dinner Party Star
Creamy Chicken Florentine with Sun-Dried Tomatoes is a perfect weeknight meal.
Easy… prepared in one skillet. And in 30 minutes.
Impressive and affordable. Quick to prepare.
Dinner party guests will also love this restaurant-quality dish!
The rich, silky sauce that’s decadent, bright and light. Drizzled over chicken that’s cooked to perfection.
Our secret to success: prep all of your ingredients before beginning the cooking process. You’ll be delighted at the ease with which this dish comes together.
And more importantly, the magical result.
A decadent dish like our Chicken Florentine deserves a respectable wine pairing.
We recommend enjoying a beautiful Rosé with this dish.
The acidity from the tomatoes harmonizes beautifully with the light, fresh acidity of the wine. All while letting the richness of the cream sauce shine through.
Our absolute favorite is a local Paso Robles wine… Clos Solène 2018 La Rosé, from French winemaker Guillaume Fabre.
A blend: 52% Grenache 22% Cinsault, 20% Mourvedre and 6% Syrah… this wine is special.

Layers of Lusciousness
This Chicken Florentine is full of flavor even though it’s a quick cook dish.
It’s all about building flavor with key ingredients.
Pro Tip #1: Season the chicken breasts on both sides with sea salt and pepper prior to pan sautéing.
Pro Tip #2: Reserve the olive oil that the sun-dried tomatoes came packed in for cooking the chicken breasts. Olive oil marinated with herbs, spices, garlic, and sun-dried tomatoes… leads to layers of delicious flavor.
Pro Tip #3: Sauté the chicken breasts over medium-high heat. This creates a nice crust while maintaining a moist interior.
Pro Tip #4: Always taste your sauce prior to serving your finished dish. Adjust the seasoning as needed.
Dreamy Creamy Italian Chicken Florentine
In the style of a Florentine dish, our Creamy Chicken Florentine with Sun-Dried Tomatoes features spinach as an integral and delightful ingredient in this dish.
We use 4 cups of fresh spinach. For spinach lovers, wilt an entire 6-ounce bag.
The Right Tools
An instant-read thermometer is key for perfectly cooked chicken. Without it, risk overcooked and dry, or undercooked chicken.
We love a good cast iron skillet for this dish. It creates a lovely crusty sear on the chicken.
You can also substitute your favorite non-stick skillet.
If you’re on a low-carb diet like Keto or others, you’ll be thrilled to know that this chicken passes the test!
If you’re not watching carbs, plate the chicken and sauce over your favorite pasta or with a crusty piece of French bread. It’s wonderful to sop up any leftover sauce.
Optional garnishes: Torn basil and freshly grated parmesan cheese.
