Are you planning on getting your meal preparation? here is a recipe for you to add to your list.
The ingredients make 3-4 meals.
1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp black pepper or to taste
1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
3 tbsp olive or avocado oil, divided
FOR THE SAUCE.
2 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tbsp Italian seasoning
3 oz jarred sun-dried tomato strips in oil drained (reserve 1 tbsp of the oil for cooking)
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup chicken broth or more
3 cups spinach, chopped
1/2 fresh grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley leaves, to serve.
Season your chicken thighs with sea salt and pepper.
Heat 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, sear the chicken for about 8 minutes each side. Or until golden and cooked through, transfer to a plate and set aside.
Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet and fry the garlic until fragrant (about 1-2 minutes). Then add in the sun-dried tomatoes with 1 tbsp sun-dried tomato oil to the skillet.
Fry for 2 minutes to release their flavours.
Reduce the heat to low-medium heat, add the cream and chicken broth and bring to simmer for 4-5 minutes. While stirring occasionally, season with sea salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to your taste.
Add in the chopped spinach leaves and allow to wilt in the sauce, then add in the Parmesan cheese.
Allow sauce to simmer on low for another 2 minutes until cheese melts through the sauce.
Add the chicken back into the skillet, top with parsley.
Serve the chicken with zucchini noodles or steamed vegetables.
Enjoy your meal!
