Ingredients
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup diced shallots
  • 1 lb. baby spinach
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan

Instructions
  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Working one at a time, dredge chicken in flour.
