CHICKEN & RICE BAKE WITH SPINACH:
The heat of summer is hitting us full blast! I’m hot and sweaty and the last thing I want to do is turn the oven on or have to stand in front of the stove for a long time. This recipe is quick and easy at it’s best. It’s a one pot dish that makes for a flavorful dinner with an easy cleanup. I like ginger however if you don’t simply keep it out and replace it with your favorite spices.
1 small onion, diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups chopped spinach (I use frozen)
1 cup of rice, raw not yet cooked
2 cups of vegetable or chicken broth
4 pieces of chicken breast, cut into small pieces
Salt, pepper, garlic, and ginger to season with
Saute onions with olive oil in a large pot until golden. Season with salt, pepper, garlic and ginger. Add the chicken pieces and cook until no longer pink. Add rice, broth and spinach to the pot. Cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed.
