Original Recipe: Eating Well


      • 1 pound chicken cutlets
      • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
      • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
      • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
      • 3 large cloves garlic, grated
      • ½ cup dry white wine
      • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh spinach
      • ¼ Greek yogurt and ¼ milk/milk substitute blended well


            • Step 1

            Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

            • Step 2

            Add garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Increase heat to medium-high and add wine. Cook until slightly reduced, about 1 minute. Return heat to medium and stir in spinach and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in yogurt/milk combination. Return the chicken to the pan and turn to coat with the sauce.
