It is springtime, and we’re getting fresh spinach out of the garden, which means Nana is looking for new ways to enjoy spinach.  She actually borrowed this recipe from one of her sons.  After tasting it, she made her changes then decided to share.  In the unlikely event that you have leftovers, cut the chicken into bite sizes and serve over your favorite pasta.


  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons basil, dried
  • 1 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic

  • 4-6 cups fresh spinach
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


  • Combine first 7 spices in a small bowl and sprinkle on both sides of the chicken.
