Chicken Florentine

Quick enough to whip up on a week night but special enough for company. This dish would be wonderful served with a creamy mash, a side of orzo or oven roasted potatoes. The white wine sauce is smooth and velvety, the chicken is tender and moist. I think this one will definitely make it into your regular rotation!
