This creamy Boursin Chicken is a quick and elegant meal that's rich in flavor.
- 2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts halved horizontally to make 4
- 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small onion, very finely diced
- 4 oz. baby spinach leaves, optional
- 3/4 cup chicken stock
- 1x 5 oz. pack of Boursin Garlic & Herbs Cheese, at room temperature
- Salt & Pepper, as needed
- Cut each chicken breast in half horizontally to make 4 even-sized pieces. In a large shallow dish, mix flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and black pepper. Dredge each chicken piece in the flour mixture, shake off excess, and set aside.
- In a large pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken for a few minutes on each side until they develop a golden crust and are nearly cooked through. Transfer them to a plate, lower the heat to medium.
- In the same pan, toss in the spinach and cook for about 30 seconds until it starts to wilt, then take it out and set it aside.
- Cook the onion for a couple of minutes until it's soft. If needed, add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan.
- Pour in the chicken stock and mix in the Boursin until it's well combined with the stock. Let it simmer for a few minutes until the sauce starts to thicken. Return the spinach and the chicken, simmer for about 30 seconds to thicken. If the sauce is too thick, add a bit of stock; if too thin, simmer more.
- Serve and enjoy!
