We’ve taken traditional Chicken Florentine and made it Keto friendly, but you don’t have to be on a keto or low-carb diet to love this comforting, creamy meal! It is quick and easy to prepare (and loaded with good4u veggies!) and a satisfying meal everyone will love. It’s also great served over baked spaghetti squash or your favorite pasta if you’re not watching your carbs.

4
1 1⁄4 pounds organic boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced against the grain into 1-inch strips
  Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Real Salt and Organic Ground Black Pepper
3 tablespoons organic butter, divided
1 large organic shallot, finely diced
2 large organic garlic cloves, minced
4 ounces organic cremini mushrooms, wiped clean and sliced
3⁄4 cup organic chicken broth, divided
1 tablespoon Natural Grocers Brand Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup organic heavy whipping cream , (or thick plain, unsweetened non-dairy alternative, such as ripple® Unsweetened Original)
1⁄2 teaspoon Natural Grocers Bulk Real Brand Salt
2 cups Organic Baby Spinach
1⁄4 cup Natural Grocers Brand Organic Parmesan Cheese Shreds, optional
  1. Heat a large deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. Generously salt and pepper all sides of each piece of chicken. Add two tablespoons of butter to the skillet. Once the butter has melted and the foaming has subsided, add the chicken pieces and cook 2-3 minutes per side, until browned and mostly cooked through.
  2. Transfer the chicken to a plate and tent with foil. Add a tablespoon of butter to the pan along with the shallots and garlic. Sauté, stirring frequently, for one minute. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they just begin to soften, 2-3 minutes. Increase the heat under the skillet to medium-high and add ¼ cup of the broth and the vinegar to the pan. Cook until the broth is mostly evaporated, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the remaining ½ cup of broth, the cream, and the salt and stir well.
  3. Heat the sauce until it just starts to bubble, reduce the heat slightly to maintain a gentle simmer, and simmer for about 3 minutes. Add the spinach and stir to combine. Add the chicken and any juices that have accumulated on the plate to the sauce. Nestle the chicken pieces into the sauce and continue to simmer for another 3-4 minutes.
  4. To serve, divide among four serving plates and top each with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
