Healthy Chicken Skillet with Spinach and Tomatoes

This super healthy skillet chicken dish is so easy to make for a quick 30 minute meal. I love that it includes superfoods tomatoes and spinach, both rich in vitamin A, C, and E, and loaded with antioxidants. The recipe also includes a whole onion, which is an anti-inflammatory food and contains vitamin C (a powerful antioxidant).

But does it taste good? Oh, yeah! It’s one of my favorite chicken meals and Hubby just raved about it.

Serve this with a baked potato, or over pasta or rice for a super healthy filling meal.

Now I have to tell you that Hubby and I are trying to eat healthier, but somehow I missed the memo that plain white potatoes are now considered heart healthy. So we are having baked potatoes with a little butter with this meal.

Print recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3 chicken breasts (about 2 lbs) cut each into 3 long strips 
  • 1 medium or large onion, chopped
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian Seasoning
  • 1 pkg baby spinach leaves (6 oz)

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet on medium/high heat. Cook chicken about 5 minutes on each side until slightly browned
  2. Add chopped onion, then cook about 5 minutes
  3. Stir in tomatoes, water and all of the seasonings. Heat to boil, then reduce heat to low. Stir everything together, then cover and simmer 3-5 minutes
  4. Stir in spinach, cook 2-4 minutes until spinach is wilted

Note: I’ve used either fresh or frozen spinach in this skillet, and as well as fresh, canned or frozen tomatoes. They all work well.

This large deep pan with a glass lid is our favorite for skillet and one-pot meals, and it works great for soups, chili and spaghetti sauce, or for frying. It comes with a steamer basket which we use to make enough steamed vegetables for a couple of meals. The fondue set is pretty cool too! Cleanup is a breeze.

We use our Nu Wave PIC everyday. We use the small skillet for making omelets, to cook a can of soup or vegetables, or to reheat leftovers.
