Lemon Chicken with Spinach - Pinterest Success {30}




Last week I tried a new recipe that I recently pinned from a blogging friend and have found a delicious and simple go to recipe for the summer. It is healthy and looks so appetizing, with the vibrant color of the cooked spinach and is bursting with bright, lemon flavor. While I prepared this for a week day dinner, I think this would also be a lovely dish for company, served on a pretty platter. I also found the first corn on the cob of the season, at the grocery store that day and it was the perfect accompaniment.

The original pin and recipe can be found here, but I did make a change or two. First, when the chicken was almost done, I squeezed 1/2 a lemon over the top. Then, to deglaze the pan, I used about 1/2 cup of good white wine in addition to the lemon juice ( and had a glass while cooking too!). I also used the red pepper flakes, suggested in the recipe and it gave a great spicy kick to compliment the lemon flavor.

I am looking forward to bright, fresh flavors, like this dish, all summer long :-)

Happy Monday!
