Parmesan Chicken & Sautéed Garlic Onion Spinach {Gluten Free}

ImageWorking long days in an office atmosphere can make you famished. That was the case for me yesterday.

The oatmeal, soup and veggies was not holding me over anymore and something homemade and filling was smack dab on my mind as I left the office.

It was about 7 degrees yesterday in the Washington, DC area – so going to the grocery store was not an option.

So, I thought – ‘what do I have in my fridge?’ A bag of spinach and some frozen chicken! Let me tell you, a lot can come from those two items. It made the perfect lean and green meal.

You will need: 1 cup Parmesan cheese, olive oil, 2 frozen chicken breasts (thawed), salt and pepper, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 small onion, 2 heaping handfuls of fresh spinach.

First – prepare your chicken. I dipped my thawed chicken breasts in olive oil and then rolled them in the Parmesan cheese. Yum! This created a little bread like texture – but gluten free!

Line a cookie tray with foil and set your chicken on there. Pop in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. You want the cheese to be a little golden brown.

In a pan on the oven, drip in some olive oil. Let that heat up. Chop up an onion and 2 cloves garlic {or more – depending on how much of a flavor kick you want!} Dump these into the hot pan and sauté.

Put one handful of green spinach in the hot pan mixture and fold these leaves into the oil. Let this cook down {it will not make as much spinach as you think!} Add in the other handful and let it cook down. Sprinkle salt and pepper as needed.

Set your cooked spinach on a plate. Then, take your chicken out of the oven and plate this delicious piece of meat on top of your greens. Fit, healthy and filling!
