Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Pour olive oil into a nonstick pan over medium heat and cook the chicken for about 8 minutes on each side or until the thermometer reaches 165 degrees.
Remove the chicken from the pan, and in the same pan, add more olive oil, thinly sliced shallots, and chopped garlic for about 3 minutes. Add chicken broth, spinach, and mushrooms, and cook until spinach is wilted. Stir in the lemon juice and Greek yogurt. Taste and add any salt and pepper if you need. Add the chicken back to the pan and serve with Wente Vineyards Riva Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir.
