Smothered Chicken Breasts With Spinach

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Chef Emstar

This is the best recipe for those nights when you just don't feel like cooking, but you also don't want take out. You can use a store bought curry simmering sauce if you want to make an Indian version instead of Italian. For the Italian version serve with pasta or garlic bread for the Indian version serve with coconut rice.

You are so right about this being a great recipe for nights when you don't want to cook. We loved how healthy and flavorful this was. I made as written using Recipe #417788 and resisted the urge to put some cheese on top which would have been less healthy but very yummy. Fallowed you suggestion and served with garlic bread which was the perfect side. This is the kind of recipe I like to keep on hand, thanks for the post.
