Lemon Butter Chicken #keto

I love chicken, I could eat it almost everyday, and with that being said, I am always on the look out for new ways to prepare it.
So I saw a recipe similar to this on line and then could not find it again. hahaha just my luck but I thought I remember how they did it, so here is my version and oh man...very rich and delicious.
My son had his over rice, but since I do keto, I did not eat rice, just the delicious chicken and some green beans.

Lemon Butter Chicken
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
3 TBSP butter
salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika
1/2 - 1 cup spinach
chicken broth 1/2 cup
1/3 heavy cream
juice from one lemon
In a skillet on medium heat put 3 tablespoons of butter. Take your boneless skinless chicken thighs and sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Paprika on both sides. Place the chicken thighs in the butter. Cook until golden brown on one side and then flip. Cook until the internal temperature is at least 165. Remove the chicken and add 1/2 cup of chicken broth into the pan. Add 1/3 to 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese. Stir well. Next add 1/2 to 1 cup of raw spinach. Stir well and allow the spinach to wilt. Add in 1/3 cup of heavy cream. Squeeze the juice from one lemon into the pan and stir. Stir well add the chicken and allow to simmer for five minutes.

ENJOY (I sure did)
