Lemon Pepper Chicken and Sauteed Spinach with Garlic and Oil

Most of the time I like to own my kitchen. But sometimes we cook together and not only do I appreciate it but it really is a ton of fun! Michael and I were making dinner, raw corn tortilla chips (new recipe to come soon) and kale chips and we managed to do this all so quickly because we were working together. (btw Michael’s kale chips were the most deelish I had ever had! He is the kale master!)

This chicken dish is my go-to dish when I am tired or am super busy but still want to put a healthy dinner together for my husband. The chicken is super quick and so was the spinach. I love that this dish is so fast yet looks and tastes (Michael says 🙂 ) like a good home cooked meal.

    I like easy things like this and will definitely try it out. But please consider parchment paper instead of foil. No metal leakage into the food, better for the environment, and no non-stick spray needed. And one can lean to the raw foodist side by pressing the garlic and mixing it in raw with the spinach instead of cooking it in. Pretty much the same flavor, but a little stronger so you may want to cut down on how much. But even with less quantity, a million times better for you.

      Thanks so much! I agree with the parchment paper! Awesome idea. I have been using non-stick foil lately, but parchment paper is totally the way to go.
      I also love the raw garlic idea. I don’t think things have to be 100% raw to get the benefits as long as some parts of your meal is raw. So that is such a great idea! thanks!
