Easy Paleo Chicken With Baby Spinach And Mini Sweet Peppers
Delicious and easy stir-fry paleo chicken with baby spinach and mini sweet peppers is ready in a snap.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
- 2 pounds chicken breasts cut into thin strips
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil
- 1 pound organic mini sweet peppers
- 4 cloves garlic chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 10 ounces organic baby spinach
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
- 2 tablespoons parsley
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
In a large frying pan or wok, heat avocado oil over a medium flame, but not smoking.
Add chicken and cook, stirring continuously until the chicken is tender, about three-four minutes. Remove the chicken to a plate and set aside.
Then stir fry the sliced peppers along with garlic, crushed red pepper, oregano,salt, and pepper.
When the peppers are just cooked, 1-2 minutes, add butter and stir until it melts.
Finally, toss the chicken back in the wok with the spinach and keep the ingredients moving constantly by stirring with a wooden spoon for a minute or two. You'll find that the spinach wilts as the flavors merge.
Turn off the flame and add Parmesan cheese, parsley, and lemon juice. Toss and serve.
