Oven Baked Chicken and Sautéed Spinach

Chicken and spinach are one of my favourite combos. Spinach is packed with iron and chicken is well…yummy. I made this a while ago and have recreated it several times. I found the recipes and thought I would share the recipe as I am currently on a 28-Day Challenge and think it works well with the plan. You could have this with Quinoa, Farro or enjoy as is. Here’s the recipe…

Chicken and Spinach


8 Chicken Drumsticks (or 4 chicken breasts)
200g Spinach
1 Red Bell Pepper
½ Orange Bell Pepper
1 Garlic Clove

½ tsp Curry Powder
½ tsp Thyme
1 tsp pepper flakes
Pinch of salt (optional)
