    Deglaze the cooking fat with 1 cup of white wine and a good pinch of fresh chopped parsley. Reduce the mixture.

    On the side, saute two handfuls of fresh spinach until wilted, 4 garlic cloves chopped and 2 tablespoons of ExtraVirgin Olive Oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Display the spinach on the bottom, then the chicken and finish with the wine reduction over the top.
