Greek Chicken and Spinach

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by kitchengrrl

This was a quick "throw together" meal one night recently, and it worked out great. Sorry, no exact proportions on a lot of things. It's very much an "eyeball" recipe. Use as much or as little of the ingredients as you like.

This is such a great recipe. It took no time at all to make, but it was very rewarding because it was so good. I used lots of seasoning, so it was very flavourful. We had this with Greek rice, and it was a perfect dinner. I'll definetely make this again. Thanks!

  1. Pound the chicken breasts with a mallet til they're flattened and uniform thickness.

  4. While marinating, mince a couple of cloves of garlic.
  5. Saute until fragrant in a little olive oil.
  6. Add a bag of fresh spinach and wilt over med-high heat.
  7. When bright green and not quite finished, add a handful of chopped parsely, some dill (to taste, I don't like much dill), and the juice of half a lemon.
  8. Stir together.
  9. Remove from heat, crumble some feta cheese on top and and cover for a few minutes to let the cheese heat up and soften.
  10. Serve with sparkling water and some fresh crusty bread.
