Paprika Chicken & Spinach with White Wine Butter Thyme Sauce + Paired with Dry Riesling


2 large chicken breasts

1 tsp paprika

salt & pepper

5 Tbsp butter*

¼ cup fresh thyme leaves

3 large garlic cloves, minced

1 cup dry white wine

2 handfuls spinach (chopped if they're huge pieces)


1. Season the chicken breasts with the paprika, rubbing it evenly over both sides. Also season with salt and pepper — about ¼ tsp each.
2. Melt 1 Tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add the chicken breasts. Cook on the first side for three minutes (or until crisping and golden), flip, and turn the heat down to medium, or slightly less. Let cook for another three minutes before adding the remaining butter, thyme and garlic.
3. Cook, stirring the thyme and garlic around, for about 2 minutes before adding the wine.
4. Bring the wine to a gentle simmer and let cook for 20 minutes. It will reduce, so add more if necessary.
5. Add the spinach, and let wilt fully. Season with salt and pepper, make sure the chicken is done, and serve with a grain of your choice.
