IMG_3533

As I do often, I tried another recipe from the blog “Closet Cooking” and wasn’t disappointed!  It’s a chicken recipe that’s all cooked in one skillet and includes two of my favorite things: sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes.  Throw in fresh spinach and some cream cheese and you’ve got a decadent, delicious and quick dinner!

Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat, season the chicken with salt and pepper, add the chicken to the pan and cook until lightly golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side, before setting aside.

Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to the pan and saute until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the broth and deglaze the pan.

Reduce the heat to medium, add the cream cheese and cook, stirring, until the cream cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes.
