Chicken Florentine

This is one of my favorites, breaded boneless chicken breast, with homemade garlic cream sauce with mushrooms and spinach. Classic Italian recipe that I obtain by eating a similar dish at Sorento's Ristorante in Boston.

  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep time: 15 Minutes
  • Cook time: 45 Minutes


  • 1 pound(s) boneless chicken breasts Coat with Progresso Italian bread crumbs and add garlic powder
  • 1 container(s) sliced mushrooms saute in a pan with olive oil

  • 1 pound(s) fettuccine, linguine, or penne pasta cook pasta until al dente
  • 2 eggs beaten add a little milk
  • 1/2 pint(s) heavy cream add garlic powder and heat until warm


1. Beat two eggs with a little bit of milk, in a mixing bowl put roughly a cup of Progresso Italian style bread crumbs and about a 1/2 TSP of garlic powder.

2. Rinse the chicken breast under cold water and then coat with the egg mixture.

3. Heat a frying pan with olive oil and cook the chicken until tender (about 30 min).

4. Cut the chicken into cubes once it is done cooking and set aside.

5. In a sauce pot, fill with cold water about a quarter of the way and steam the spinach until tender (about ten minutes).
