Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
