A wonderful recipe full of nutrients from the bed of spinach and protein from the chicken. This dish combines several flavors for a great tasting lunch or dinner. Adapted from a popular weight loss tracking website.

  1. Steam the asparagus tips for 2 minutes or until crisp but tender.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt, curry, lemon juice, and salt until well combined.
  3. Add the steamed asparagus, chicken, bell peppers, cilantro and almonds. Toss to coat with dressing. Serve on fresh spinach leaves.

Delicious! I added both the asparagus tips and a bit of the stalk. I roasted the asparagus for about 10 minutes in a 400 degree oven rather than steaming. And I used "short-cuts" grilled chicken breast to make this an easy weeknight dinner. I also sprinkled the almonds on top. I can't wait to make this in the spring when both asparagus & cilantro will be overflowing in my vegetable garden. I will post a picture this weekend.

Hi, I know I'm supposed to be picking things from the tag game; however I had to try this and I am always too late to get your name. It is wonderful. I served it over rice instead of spinach only becuase I had my servings of fruit and veggies for the day but was lacking in the fibre department. It is an absolutely quick tasty weekday meal. I had to poach the chicken first,and even with that it was under 30 minutes. I have taken a picture and will post it soon I have a couple more pictures to post this week, so I'm going to download them all at once. To everyone out there: TRY THIS!!!!!
