Repeat with remaining chicken pieces. Sprinkle flour on a plate and season with salt and pepper. Coat chicken pieces in flour, shaking off excess.

  3. Heat remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, in batches, for 2 minutes each side or until golden. Remove to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Arrange chicken in a single layer. Top with spinach mixture and mozzarella. Preheat grill on medium-high heat.
  4. Pour pasta sauce into frying pan. Bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes. Stir in sugar and basil. Place chicken under grill and cook for 2 minutes or until cheese melts.
  5. Divide pasta sauce between shallow serving plates. Top with florentine chicken and serve with potatoes and broccolini.
