My friend Dolly mentioned that she would like to see some recipes on this blog, so I thought I’d take a stab at posting one each week. In keeping with the “Fit” and “Fearless” theme, I’ll try to select recipes that are somewhat healthy, and/or recipes that sound difficult and that I’m afraid of, so I can conquer my fear!!
For this first one, I’m going with the healthy theme: Greek Chicken.
My boss told me how to make it. It is soooo easy. And fast!! And it incorporates two super foods (tomatoes and spinach) which are crazy-good for us. You can adjust the amount of spinach and tomatoes and cheese you use. Spinach cooks down to almost nothing, so we have been known to use an entire large bag of spinach. And if you don’t like feta, use whatever sounds good to you. Last night we used mozzarella. I usually serve this with Parmesan noodles or brown rice. I think my boss serves it with risotto....I've never made risotto. Is it hard? Maybe my next posting will be about my attempt to conquer my fear of making risotto......
Greek Chicken (for 4)
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (flatten them a bit if they’re huge)
Greek seasoning (in the spice aisle)
Small bag of baby spinach
Two tomatoes, chopped
¼ cup Feta cheese
Sprinkle seasoning on both sides of chicken.
Heat large frying pan with non-stick spray to medium-high.
Saute one side of the chicken breasts until browned.
Flip, and put the spinach and tomatoes on top of the chicken.
Cover, and let other side brown, about 5 minutes on medium.
Stir the wilted spinach and tomatoes around the chicken.
The tomatoes will add liquid to the pan, but if it dries out add some water.
Sprinkle the cheese on top of everything and cover for another few minutes.
