– 2 tablespoons olive oil (0g carbs)
– 2 cloves garlic, minced (2g carbs)
– 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped (2g carbs)

**Total Carbs for the Recipe:** Approximately 10g carbs
1. Start by seasoning both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 6-7 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through and have a golden-brown crust. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
3. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and chopped onion. Sauté for a couple of minutes until the onion becomes translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
4. Add the fresh spinach leaves to the skillet. Cook and stir until the spinach wilts down.
5. Pour in the heavy cream and chicken broth. Stir to combine and let the mixture simmer for a few minutes to reduce slightly.
6. Add the grated Parmesan cheese and nutmeg to the sauce. Stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is creamy.
7. Return the cooked chicken breasts to the skillet, nestling them into the creamy spinach sauce.
8. Allow the chicken to heat through in the sauce for a couple of minutes.
9. Once the chicken is heated, spoon the creamy spinach sauce over the chicken breasts.
10. Serve the Chicken Florentine with a side salad or low-carb vegetables for a complete Keto meal.
