Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet onion
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chiffon

Instructions

  1. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat.
  3. Add avocado oil to the pan and then chicken breast. Sear chicken for 4-5 minutes per side.
  4. Remove from pan and set aside.
  5. Then immediately add butter to the pan and let melt. Add in garlic and saute for 30 seconds, stirring the entire time.
  6. Add in onions and saute until translucent, about 2 minutes.
  7. Deglaze the pan with white wine, scrapping with a wooden spoon to get any brown bits from the bottom. Season with salt and 1/8 teaspoon of red pepper flakes.

  9. Next add in spinach and saute until wilted down, about 2 minutes.
