Chicken With Mushrooms and Spinach

Chicken is a tasty low fat meat that has many nutritional values for our bodies. It is high in protein, which is important for growing and maintaining muscle mass, it is rich in vitamin B3 (niacin) which is essential for cancer protection. One small serving of chicken can meet your daily requirements of niacin. Niacin is also essential for our brain health and it may protect us from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Vitamins B6 and B3 contained in chicken help give our bodies that boost of energy when we start to feel a bit sluggish.

And let’s not forget to mention the great taste chicken has to offer. Tonight I prepared it with some bella mushrooms, fresh spinach (for the extra iron) a clove of garlic, for added flavor.

This is such a wonderful meal to prepare that not only tastes delicious but looks wonderful too.

      Hello, And thank you for the interest. This recipe is really so simple. You just take 4 4 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breast and pound then to about 1/4 inch thick. Place them in a skillet with some heated olive oil, about 1 tablespoon. Make sure you first season them with salt and pepper. Cook over medium low heat about 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat and keep warm. Add 1 more tablespoon olive oil and when hot add 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Add a bag of spinach and place the chicken back into the skillet. Cover and allow for the spinach to wilt, about 4 minutes. Remove and serve with your favorite side. Enjoy!
