Cast Iron Sicilian Chicken

Pan seared chicken thighs and spiced-up flavors along with fresh spinach is an awesome dinner time go to. Plus, this dish is low on the carbs!

Once you pan fry the chicken thighs, the spinach is combined with sun-dried tomatoes and cream before adding the chicken back to the skillet.
