The one thing I generally do not do when it comes to cook is try to make up my own recipe. This would be the exception. I had pretty much a whole bag of spinach, left-over chicken (from a buy one get one free sale) and pasta. I knew that somehow this combination needed to be a meal.
I looked through Google and Pinterest but could not find a recipe that would not require that I go out and get additional ingredients. Having to do this would defeat the purpose of using the leftovers to make a meal. So I decided to make something up.
Here is what I came up with:
Lemony Chicken with Spinach:
What you need:
1 cup of lemon juice
2 boneless/ skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp nutmeg
2 cups of spinach
1 box of pasta
1) Boil the pasta;
2) Cube the chicken;
3) Place chicken in pammed pan with lemon juice;
4) Cook chicken through then add spinach and nutmeg.
5) Serve over al dente pasta.
The only complaint I had about this dish was it was too “lemony”. I found when re-heated it was just right but on first bite it was a bit powerful. I think cutting down the lemon portion to 1/2 cup might help if you are not a huge lemon fan.
