Easy Cheesy Italian Chicken Recipe with Tomatoes and Spinach

I’m always looking for new healthy recipes and the first time I made this meal I was skeptical whether or not it would be bland or yummy. Well…it was SUPER yummy! We ate this easy cheesy italian chicken over pasta – it was so moist and flavorful I was amazed at how simple it was to prepare.

I lived in Florence, Italy, for four months while I was in college so I know that good Italian dishes are often very simple and just require fresh ingredients.

Place all ingredients in a bowl and pour in a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, a generous amount of salt and pepper, a teaspoon of sugar, a couple tablespoons of flour {since the chicken will produce so much liquid}.
