Clinton Kelly's Braised Chicken with White Beans & Spinach from ABC's The Chew
   Time 60 min | Servings 4
8 skinless chicken thighs
Extra virgin olive oil
Unsalted butter
1 onion, thinly sliced
6 garlic cloves, smashed
1 medium rosemary sprig, leaves finely chopped
1/2 cup white wine
2 cups chicken stock
14 ounce can cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
3 cups fresh spinach
1 lemon, strips of zest & juice
3 ounces prosciutto slices, thinly sliced into ribbons; optional
Parsley, to garnish
Salt & freshly Cracked Black Pepper

   Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Season chicken liberally with salt and pepper on both sides. Add to the pan and sear until golden, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate.
   Add a few tablespoons of butter and allow to melt. Stir in onions, season with salt and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes. Toss in rosemary and garlic and cook just until fragrant. Deglaze pan with white wine. Return chicken to the pan along with the stock. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes until chicken is cooked and tender.
   Remove chicken to a plate. Stir in beans and spinach, cover and cook for 5 more minutes to infuse flavors.
   Serve warm with a drizzle of olive oil, parsley, lemon juice and top with prosciutto.

I changed up a few things to "make it my own". One of the biggest differences was the prosciutto. I can find it more easily diced (rather than in thin slices) so I added the diced prosciutto to the pan right before the onions to let the fat render out a bit and add that flavor the dish.
