Powered by Mom Blog LOVES this Easy & Tasty Chicken Recipe

I don’t know about you but some days I’m just so darn tired from work, running around and all that comes with being a working mom that it can be a bit of an effort to get on the table a tasty but healthy dinner. Well when I discovered this particular chicken recipe from Canadian Living I was over the moon when we first tried it as it really is an easy and tasty chicken recipe that you can also modify to suit you and your family’s taste buds!

Here’s a picture of the finished product that I served over soba noodles but it’s absolutely delicious with brown rice or really anything you want!

Easy and Tasty Chicken Recipe

Now I admit that once I’ve done a “recipe” a few times I generally don’t follow measurements as I cook it to suit our needs and family size so I apologize if the measurements are not exact. You can easily adjust to make more or less and with these ingredients you really don’t have to worry about how much of each as it will taste good no matter what I’m sure!

Here’s what I do:

  • 4 boneless & skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of white wine (or white cooking wine, red will do in a pinch too)
  • 2 cups of baby spinach
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 cups of mushrooms (crimini, portabello, or white) – optional
  • chopped onions – optional (I don’t use but the original recipe called for it)

Directions

Bake chicken breasts with a bit of olive oil on them and if wanted a bit of sea salt and pepper for 20 minutes max on 350 degrees. It’s okay if there still a bit pink inside don’t worry they’ll get cooked. Take out and set aside.

I love mushrooms so I always add it to this recipe. Saute mushrooms with garlic and some salt and pepper

Set aside mushrooms (if you don’t want it mixed in) and using the same pan add the spinach and a little bit more garlic and mix around until spinach is wilted.

Add half of the white wine. Cut up the chicken and add that to the spinach and cook for a bit (about 5 minutes) then add the rest of the white wine. Cook until chicken is cooked all the way through doesn’t take long.

You can either add the mushrooms in at this time and mix it up or add them on top of the finished product up to you. I leave the mushrooms in as you can see above and mix it up so it gets some of the amazing flavoring from the wine.

Serve over rice, noodles, with potatoes or whatever you want. It is so yummy and after you’ve made it at least once it’s so easy to make and quite quick! Hope you all enjoy it and feel free to share your favorite easy and tasty recipes 🙂

  4. We have been eating a lot more chicken since I had my stent surgeries last year. This recipe looks really easy and tasty. Thanks for the recipe, I’m going to have to try it.

  5. I want to try this recipe, looks good. I tried soba noodles for the 1st time a couple days ago. I liked them. They seemed a little different but I liked them. Now I want to try more recipes with the soba noodles.

  6. THIS is exactly the kind of recipe I look for: healthy but savory and something I know my husband will genuinely love!

    I took me about 15 years to get him to TRY Soba noodles – but now he loves them – the flavor and texture. All Summer long I’ve been making Soba Noodle Salads (served cold or at room temperature – and usually with lots of raw fresh veggies (and an occasional splurge on sushi grade tuna!)

    I guess I hadn’t really even thought about serving it hot and with ALL of my favorites: garlic, mushrooms, sprinach and chicken – and I often find that a splash of white wine really makes a dish sing!

  9. Looks yummy. I must admit I do the same as you. After I make a recipe a few times, I start to improvise. If I have most of the ingredients I get a little creative. thanks for this recipe for me to try!

  10. I bet I could do this with artichoke hearts and leave out the spinach and chicken for a vegetarian variation. Thans for the idea. Looks good!

  12. I like to find chicken recipes. This one sounds good . Only thing I will change is the wine. I dont care for the taste of wine, So I would use chicken broth instead. Other than that is all yummy to me

  13. This looks good… is there any way to get a similar flavor without using mushrooms… no one in my house cares over much for mushrooms 😉

  16. When I get home from work, I love a “hearty” meal – which means I often go for something less than healthy. But this recipe looks healthy AND hearty, and not too complicated. Thanks for posting!

  17. Although I’m not the cook in our household of two (hubby began doing the cooking 20 plus years ago), I’m always on the lookout for easy and delicious recipes to give to him. I think he’d like this one. Thank you.

  18. Looks delicious! I usually keep baked chicken breast in ziplock bags in the freezer, either whole or cubed. I watch for sales and stock up. There are so many delicious and super fast ways to use them in a meal! Your recipe is great, and super healthy besides. Thanks.

  19. The chicken dish looks very healthy with simple, clean ingredients. I like how the spinach even though it’s 2 cups, cooks down.

  20. This looks so yummy! I am one of those people who do not measure, I usually season to taste, so this should be a good recipe for me to replicate! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  21. I just laid out chicken breasts to thaw for supper tomorrow, and I was trying to think of something new to make with them. This sounds like the perfect recipe, my hubby loves mushrooms in anything and everything, and I love spinach.

  22. I make lots of recipes and I also don’t use exact measurements. I have lots of leftover chicken from last night and this recipe sounds so good that I think it will be supper for tonight.

  24. Not only am I worn out some (all) nights, but I am a terrible cook, this looks like I could handle it. I like that you used the Soba noodles, I just had them at Panera for the 1st time and they’re great. The baby spinach & garlic is healthy too-thanks for the recipe!
