Saucy Tomato & Spinach Chicken

Simple, easy, and delicious!

Ingredients: (serves two)

§  2 chicken breasts, cut into pieces

§  2 cloves garlic, minced

§  1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

§  1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes

§  Few huge handfuls fresh spinach

§  1/2 C black beans or cannellini beans (optional, rinsed and drained)

§  2 servings cooked brown rice (or whole wheat pasta)

§  Cracked pepper and Chili powder to taste

 

Instructions:

1) Start by tossing the chicken, garlic, and olive oil (plus some cooking spray if your pan tends to stick) into a pan on medium/medium high heat. sauté until the chicken is fully cooked.

2) Once the chicken is cooked, add in the can of diced tomatoes, stirring until mixed.

3) Next, add in a few huge handfuls of fresh spinach — don’t worry about adding a lot as it will cook down! Stir until fully wilted — this will only take a minute or two.

4) Next, add in the beans and whatever grain (already cooked) you want to use — we used two servings of cooked brown rice, but cooked whole wheat pasta would also be good!

Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, serve with a salad
