Easy, healthy fave that will get the kids to eat their spinach!! Easy, healthy fave that will get the kids to eat their spinach!!
Number of Servings: 1


    3- Bonelss, skinless chicken breasts-diced into cubes
    1c- chopped onion
    3- cloves garlic, minced
    6- carrots julienned
    1c- chicken broth
    1- bunch fresh spinach, stems removed
    cooking spray


Cut chicken breasts into cubes, or bite size chunks, mince garlic, and chop onion. Add onions, garlic and chicken to hot skillet coated w/cooking spray. Brown chicken all around, pull out of pan. Add carrots to skillet. Coat w/garlic and onion, add chicken back to skillet. Reduce heat, cover and cook 15-20 min until chicken is done and carrots are soft. Remove carrots and chicken from pan. Set aside. Add chicken broth to skillet and boil to reduce (2-3 min.) Put liquid mixture into blender.--Caution--liquid is very hot and will cause top of blender to come off. I cover w/towel to keep secure and avoid splattering.
While liquid is blending, put clean, dry, spinach in medium saucepan, cover and cook on medium heat 2-3 min until just starting to wilt.
Place spinach on plate, arrange chicken and carrots on top and pour sauce over.
Very delicious, even my kids eat it. A household favorite for sure!!
Make 6 1/2 breast servings.

    This was delicious! I was a little dubious about the spinach part (before I ate it), but it was just right. This is definitely a keeper. - 8/22/10

    2 Thumbs up!!!!
    Only problem that I faced was that I was not sure how to separate the onion from the carrots. I think that the next time I cook this I will use 1/2 of the onion in with the chicken and carrot and then for the sauce use the rest of the onion.

    Very Good
    Really good! I did this without the spinach, only because I didn't have any on hand, and it was still so good. Will definitely have again, this time with spinach! - 2/25/09

    Very Good
    This was really really good. Wasn't quite sure how to pick out the carrots and leave the onions in the pan but I got most of them out with the chicken. I'll definitely be making this again. - 11/20/08
