Caramelized Chicken with Spinach and Mushroom Sauce

My plan for this week was to cook dinner every night. Obviously that didn’t happen.

Fortunately last night I took the night to myself, got a pedicure, and made this chicken dish.

Totally hit the spot.

Cooking is so therapeutic for me. I love trying out new recipes or creating dishes that come to mind. I’ve been eating out so much recently that it made me miss cooking. Sometimes its nice to spoil yourself and make a good home cooked meal.

Caramelized Chicken with Spinach and Mushroom Sauce
Ingredients: 1-2 thinly sliced chicken breasts1 cup of chopped mushrooms1/2 onion, chopped1 cup of low sodium chicken stock1 tbsp of butter (the real deal)salt & pepper to taste1 big handful of fresh spinach2 tbsp of olive oil
 Saute the mushrooms and onions over medium heat in 1 tbsp of olive oil  While the veggies are cooking, saute the chicken breast (in a second pan) over medium heat until golden brown on both sides. Once the mushrooms and onions are soft, add the chicken stock and cook for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the butter and let it melt into the sauce (this will give it a velvety texture). 
Once the butter is melted, add the spinach and let it wilt with the heat of the sauce. Add the chicken to the sauce and let the flavors blend together for about 2 minutes. fantastic I hate doing the dishes so much that I often leave dishes in my sink for days at a time gross.
I ended up doing them anyways…ughhhh
How do you like to spoil yourself?
Have a great day!
