Lemony Chicken with Spinach

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

Steps:

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.

Enjoy!

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.
