Easy chicken florentine looks and sounds fancy, it even tastes fancy, but it’s a quick and easy 30 minute meal that is perfect for a busy weeknight.
Chicken Florentine Recipe
Chicken Florentine might sound like a fancy dish at an expensive Italian restaurant, but this delicious meal is so easy with the help of Bertolli® sauce.
The Organic Fire Roasted Garlic Marinara uses vine-ripened tomatoes, roasted garlic and delicious herbs and spices. The Organic Creamy Alfredo sauce uses fresh cream, real butter, and aged Parmesan and Romano cheeses. Both use natural ingredients, organic ingredients.
Best idea ever, you could mix the two sauces to make a Rosa Sauce.
How do you make Chicken Florentine?
Chicken Florentine is made all in one skillet.
First, you crisp up the pancetta in a skillet, then remove it. Next, you bread thin chicken breasts with egg and a cheese and panko bread crumb mixture and cook them in the same skillet. Then, you warm some olive oil and minced garlic then wilt the spinach. Finally, you remove the chicken and simmer the marinara with the cooked pancetta.
Put it all together, along with some pasta, and you have an easy meal that is full of flavor.
I loved the spinach in this recipe. It was so flavorful and perfect with the pasta. I would gladly serve it with either the alfredo or marinara sauce and skip the chicken, for a vegetarian option. You’d have to skip the pancetta to make it truly vegetarian, but then you’d miss out on the salty flavor it adds to the spinach.
I made this Chicken Florentine as an easy weekend dinner for Bob and I, but it would come together really quickly during the week after work. It felt fancy and like we were on a date, even though we were just on the couch after the girls went to bed.
The Tuscan Way of cooking is all about using a few quality ingredients, cooked with olive oil to lock in flavors. Bertolli helps me bring Tuscany to my table by making products that taste great and are full of natural ingredients that I feel good about serving to my family.

- A good skillet – you only need one for this dish, make it a good one.
