  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Heat half of the coconut oil in a large ovenproof skillet over high heat.
  • Liberally season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper before transferring to the hot skillet.
  • Sear the chicken 2-3 minutes per side, just until it develops a golden-brown color.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside. Allow the pan to cool slightly before heating the remaining coconut oil over medium heat.
  • Toss in the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms and cook until browned 5-7 minutes.
  • Pour in the chicken broth, yogurt, lemon juice, and oregano and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  • Let the mixture reduce for a few minutes until it has thickened.
  • Pour in the spinach and sprinkle over another pinch of salt. Let the greens wilt down, stirring occasionally.
  • Place the chicken breasts back into the pan and transfer the pan to the oven.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.
  • Serve chicken on a bed of the wilted spinach and top with a drizzle of the creamy sauce.
