PREPARATION
1.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2.
Season the chicken with salt, pepper and paprika. Set aside.
3.
Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a large oven-proof skillet (a Le Creuset Dutch Oven works well or a RockCrok or cast iron skillet) over medium high heat.
4.
Add the chicken and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove and set chicken aside on separate plate.
5.
While the chicken is resting, return back to the same skillet and melt remaining tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently about 1 minute.
6.
Stir in chicken broth, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice and thyme.
7.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Add in the spinach and simmer until the spinach has wilted and the sauce has slightly thickened.
8.
Continue to cook the sauce about 5-7 minutes so the sauce becomes thicker. You don't want the sauce to become too runny.
9.
Once your sauce is to the desired thickness, return the chicken to the skillet.
10.
Place in the oven and cook for about 25-30 minutes.
11.
Remove the dish and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
