Creamy Chicken and Spinach

The original recipe I learnt from a dear and recently deceased friend. One of my best friends, a fantastic woman that left us too soon. To you Cordélia, I dedicate this recipe.

Of course I did add some tweaks (as usual) and it is a favorite of everyone I make it for. It’s creamy, it’s delicious, it’s comforting, simple, easy and keto.
