Portobello Mushrooms with Chicken and Spinach
Looking for a delicious dish that you can indulge yourself with that will not ruin your healthy eating habits? I created this recipe using ingredients that were in my refrigerator, and now it is one of my favorites! It is easy to prepare and so nutritious.
First, here are the ingredients that I used:
Grated carrots, diced cooked chicken, diced mini portobello mushrooms (Costco purchase), baby spinach......
and Tomato Basil Dressing from Whole Foods. You can find it in the refrigerator section of the store.
I used about 8 oz. of mushrooms and diced them. I put 1 tsp of olive oil in the pan to saute them and then added the grated carrot.
Next, add the chicken. Since this is one serving I'm making, I measured out 2 ounces of chicken...and yes, I used a kitchen scale!
Once the chicken has been in the pan and is heated up, I put in the spinach. I put my cast iron skillet on the pan as a cover, and let the spinach steam for a minute or so.
Sprinkle some grated cheese on top. It not only tastes great, but it looks yummy as well!
Close up! I have tried other no oil dressings such as the Fig Balsamic Dressing, but I really like the Tomato Basil Dressing the best. You could use fresh basil and a little tomato paste from a tube and a few other herbs if you don't have the Tomato Basil Dressing. Enjoy!
