spinach chicken

This is something I really like all year round.
There are only 2 of us in the house, but we usually make enough for 4 portions so that we have lunch for the next few days.
  • Make 2 cups rice (dry) we have a rice cooker, but however you cook it is fine.
  • Cut up 2 chicken breasts and cook through in wok
  • While chicken is cooking cut half a medium onion into strands or however you like your onions and through in walk
  • When chicken and onions are cooked through add 1/2 bag fresh spinach or 1 package frozen spinach
  • Put in 2 tablespoons minced garlic, 1 teaspoon sesame seed oil, and about 1/4 cup soy sauce ( I use low salt).
  • Mix until spinach is limp or thawed and warm.
  • Add more seasoning as needed.
  • Serve over warm rice.
**Different proteins can be substituted or excluded.

rosemary balsamic chicken

I have been wanting to experiment with chicken and balsamic. I bought some balsamic with rosemary in it. I preheated the oven to 350 F and cut 2 chicken breasts in half so 4 pieces total. In a bowl I mixed about 1/2 C balsamic with 1/2 packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix. After pouring the mix over the chicken and mixing it around so that the chicken is covered the chicken was baked approx. 40 min.

*Marinate the mixture
*Bake potatoes with chicken in the mixture
