Whole 30 Mediterranean Chicken
Creating a healthy Lifestyle isn’t always the easiest when you’re balancing work and your personal life. I pinned the recipe from Lyndsey with www.mommafitlyndsey.com This is actually her image. And you should definitely visit her blog.
It’s been a while since we’ve done a Sunday Supper Post… I mean the Insta Pot is definitely the way to go now….. times are changing and so is the way to cook. Though just have to tell you…I will NEVER get rid of my Crock Pot. Still pull it out on occasion. We’ve been trying to get into the Whole 30 way of cooking and eating… It’s not always an easy thing to stick to but some of the recipes are great for anyone that’s looking for a healthier way to eat. Talena and I aren’t getting any younger…You think?… so we are working toward more health and balance in our lives and healthier eating is becoming a priority.
Now … Time to get to the recipe! Here’s what you’ll need…
1 Pound Chicken Breast
TB olive Oil
1 onion sliced
1 jar marinated artichokes drained & chopped
1 jar sun-dried tomatoes drained & chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 bag baby spinach
This recipe should serve up to 6 people… Let’s start cooking!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place chopped veggies in a glass baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Trim chicken of fat and season with salt, pepper and italian seasoning.
Heat 1 TB of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is heated but not smoking, add chicken to skillet. Brown on each side for about 4 minutes. Transfer to glass dish and set aside.
Add 1 tsp Olive Oil (if needed) to skillet. Add Garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add spinach and cook until wilted. Add spinach to glass dish.
Bake chicken for about 20 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
I started looking at the top of the chicken in these pictures and noticed some type of delicious cheese was added even though dairy is a no-go for the WHOLE 30. You might substitute with lemon zest ?
Enjoy!! … tell us if you make this and what’s a thing you would add/ take away? Are you familiar with the WHOLE 30 way of cooking? It’s hard to do a lifestyle of no dairy, sugars, carbs or wine. The recipes can be unbelievably good, but to completely jump in 100% would be a definite challenge for us.
