Quick and Easy Chicken with Spinach

Look Ma, I am a chef!

Sometimes I get home from work and I don’t feel like cooking a full meal. Who am I kidding, I never want to. Tonight was one of those nights and thankfully my husband had cooked up several chicken breasts earlier in the day. yay husband!  With the chicken already made I just needed to get some veggies to go with the chicken.  I wanted some yummy and easy.  Something I didn’t have to peel or turn the oven on for.  So I looked in the fridge and came up with this recipe, which I literally threw together on the spot. It’s enough for one or two people, and it took me about 10 minutes.

Gina Makes Chicken with Spinach (and it’s good)

1 chicken breast (grilled or oven roasted)
4 handfuls baby spinach
6 mushrooms chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
Salt (I used Kosher)
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Water (as needed)
1-2 tblsp olive oil

In a skillet like thing heat the olive oil over medium high heat.  Add the chopped garlic.  Let it cook for a little bit…like a minute?  Long enough to make the kitchen smell like you are cooking something good.  Add the mushrooms and stir.  Cook those while you slice up your already cooked chicken breast.  Set the chicken aside and add the spinach to the pan.  I added in handfuls so it wasn’t a big pile of spinach that you couldn’t stir.  After the second handful add about 4 tblsp of water.  I eyeballed it.  May have been more, but not less. Add the rest of the spinach.  Pour in the lemon juice and season with the salt and pepper.  Season to your liking.  You know how much salt or pepper is good for your taste buds.  Add the sliced chicken.  Stir and simmer for about a minute.  Enjoy!

So easy and soooooo yummy!
