Sauteed spinach & leeks with chicken (jalapeno too!)

Submitted by: GETSTRONGRRR

Introduction

Sauteed leeks & spinach are great! You can add any number of variations. I like mine with chicken breast, but you could just as easily add ground beef. I make mine with jalapenos for some zing, but you can ditch the peppers and add some garlic to the yogurt topping. Sauteed leeks & spinach are great! You can add any number of variations.

Ingredients

    Spinach, fresh, 1 package - 10 oz
    Leeks, 1 leek
    Mushrooms, fresh, 1 cup, pieces or slices
    Jalapeno Peppers, 1 pepper
    Chicken Breast, previously cooked - 6 ounces
    Butter - 3 tbsp
    Yogurt, plain, whole milk - .5 cup

Directions

Prep by slicing 1 leek into thin slices, slice mushrooms into bite size pieces, chop up the jalapeno into very small pieces, and chop up the spinach with a large knife. For this recipe, I use leftover chicken breast that I had grilled earlier in the week.

Put one tbsp butter in a saute pan. Once sizzling, toss in the leeks. When they begin to brown, toss in the jalapenos and stir up for another minute or 2. Take them out and place in a small bowl for later use.

Put in another tbsp butter and saute the mushrooms until well browned, then toss in the leeks & jalapenos

If needed, add the last tbsp butter, then put in the spinach, one handful at a time, stirring quickly so that the spinach wilts. Once all the spinach has been added and it has reduced in bulk, add in the chicken and saute until everything is well mixed.

Pour into serving bowls and top with a dollop of yogurt. Voila!

Serving Size: Makes 2 bowls per person

  • Sounds yummy but I would probably go with a fraction of the butter. - 8/30/12
