Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream

Directions

  1. Sprinkle chicken with seasoned salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook until a thermometer reads 170°, about 6 minutes on each side. Remove from pan; keep warm.
  2. In same pan, cook and stir shallots until tender. Add wine; bring to a boil. Cook until wine is reduced by half. Add spinach and salt; cook and stir just until spinach is wilted. Stir in sour cream; serve with chicken.
