This garlic and provolone chicken is to die for!
I have a serious garlic obsession. Well I have a lot of obsessions to be honest.
Garlic is one of the top ingredients in my kitchen though. I literally use it in everything. I’m talking chicken, mushrooms, beef, eggs, cupcakes… Just kidding on the cupcakes!
More to the point though great chicken doesn’t have to be complicated at all. You really just need to make sure you use the right cooking method and some salt and pepper for delicious results.
I eat clean though, which means a lot of chicken. So there comes a point where creativity has to come into play.
I still like to keep things simple though. It just makes counting those macros that much easier. No need in having to figure up calories, fat, and sodium for 20 different ingredients. That just sounds exhausting!
So I came up with this garlic chicken with provolone that fits right into a healthy diet and taste delicious. I then decided to top it with sauteed spinach just to make it even more delicious.
Garlic Chicken w/Provolone:
- 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 4 slices of smoked provolone cheese
- 3 cloves of garlic
Preheat your skillet over medium-high heat with the olive oil in it to get it good and hot. Not quite to smoking point though.
Meanwhile salt and pepper the chicken to your liking.
Add crushed garlic to the oil and let cook for about 1 minutes. Just long enough for it to get really fragrant.
Place the chicken breasts into the skillet and let sit on one side until it begins to brown. About 5-6 minutes.
Flip the chicken breasts and let the other side brown.
Cover and turn down to medium low for approximately 10 minutes or until almost completely cooked through.
Place the slices of provolone on top of the chicken, cover and remove from heat.
Let rest for about 5 more minutes.
At this point the chicken should have finished cooking through and the cheese should be melted.
Now it’s time to top it with sauteed spinach and serve!
