2.

Heat a large pan over medium heat and add butter to melt. Once the butter has melted add garlic, peppers, onions and mushrooms to the pan and cook. Allow to cook until the onions are translucent and peppers begin to soften. Approx. 5-10 minutes. Add thawed and drained spinach. To drain the water from the spinach just simply squeeze it out of the bag. Be careful though the bag can pop and a disaster follows. Mix the spinach in with the vegetables.

3.

While the vegetables cook, cut your chicken into bite sized pieces. Alternatively, for tracking purposes, you can cut your chicken into 4 oz. cutlets and place on top at the end to cook vs. mixed in with the vegetables.

    This looks amazing! One question though, what is 281 grams in cups?

    • daniellelima

      I’m not sure, maybe around 1.5. If you’re not measuring / tracking – it’s 6 servings so you can just split the dish by 6.

    So excited to make it! I’m tracking my macros. How much spinach? The store I’m shopping at has several size options

    I made this recipe last night and, oh my gosh it was AMAZING!!!! The only thing I did different is that I seasoned the chicken pieces with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper, and just a smidge of poultry seasoning and then pan fried them in cooking spray. When almost cooked through I added the butter and vegetables with the minced garlic added at the end so as not to burn. I served over rice. This will definitely be on repeat. Thanks for an awesome recipe!!!!!

    This looks delish! I’m not a huge fan of sour cream, so I would maybe substitute with Greek yogurt, or just omit.
